Login sessions not persistent

Postby Ben James Ben » Sun Jan 27, 2008 1:52 pm

The "Log me on automatically each visit" function does not seem to work properly. Or, perhaps the board is configured to disallow it. In any case, a cookie is not getting saved, and if you login and then revisit the forum using a URL without a sid parameter, you are logged out. (I cleared all laptop.org cookies from my browser, to eliminate the possibility of cookie session confusion from the multiple versions of phpbb installed this weekend.)

I'm having the same problem - in particular, when I click on the link in an email notification of new postings in a topic I'm watching, I have to log in ...

It appears to be caused by an incorrect cookie setting in the forum administration control panel. We had it set to match the test server we were using. It should be fixed now.

I didn't have to do anything special, just visited another notification link in the same firefox 2.0.0.11 session.

You may have to clear the cookies in your browser, or restart your browser to get it to work.
