Instantly expiring login

Postby Johan G » Mon Nov 28, 2016 10:59 am

A user sent me a PM the other day asking for assistance with an issue.

For each action on the forum the user have to log in again. This could for example after reading a topic or posting a message.

I know there are many guys on the forum that are much more clever than me, so I wonder if some of you have any ideas on what could be the cause.

I do not have that issue, the forum infrastructure does not seem to have changed, and the user had not done any changes on his side when the issue manifested itself.

The user have since tried using another web browser and logging in specifically to the https URL, but the issue still persist.

I have no ideas as to what could be the cause of this.

Could be a local browser issue? Maybe try with a different browser (i.e. firefox vs. chrome vs. safari vs. exploder?) Maybe they have some security setting on their browser dialed way up? Maybe they've run out of disk space to cache temp files? Just brainstorming ...

sounds like they are blocking cookies and/or using private browsing... they should stop being so paranoid on the flightgear forums ;) :lol:
