Getting logged out

Post by Max » Tue Aug 15, 2017 12:09 pm

Just a heads-up that I keep getting logged out of the forum automatically in between sessions, even after clicking "Remember Me" on the login screen. This never used to be the case, so I'm not sure if it's a new security feature or a bug.

That happens to me on my phone, but it keeps me logged in on my desktop. Knowing your schedule, I'm guessing you're on a mobile device?

To clarify, this is on my desktop, not on Mobile. Mac OS 10.12.6, Firefox 54.0.1.

For a while after the new site went up, I was also getting logged out after every visit, but for the last week or two it has been keeping me logged in when I come back. This is on my PCs, I should say.

If you signed up when we first went online and are having this problem, just clear your cookies and all will be well.

That did not work for me. I've tried restarting the computer too, and there's no change.

Incidentally, I started having problems with cookies in general after I cleared them in FF, so I switched over to Chrome. Still having the same issue here in that browser too.

You being one of the first to sign up with the new forums tells me it probably is a cookie problem. I made a change to the cookie settings after you signed up to allow the remember me. Make sure you have completely cleared all cookies and that you have the following turned on: "Allow sites to save and read cookie data (recommended)"
I am not having a problem staying logged in.
Hope this helps.

I've gotten logged off this forum once or twice.
But on the old forum, I also would get automatically logged off every month or two.
