Trouble staying logged in?

Post by DoctorC » Wed Aug 07, 2019 2:38 pm

Anyone else having difficulty staying logged in?
Using Android, Google,
Got a new phone just over a month ago.
When I pull up my bookmark to DWC unread posts it kicks me to the login in screen.
My username and password are stored and the box to keep me logged in is checked.
I just click the login button and it takes me back to the correct page.
As I browse the site, it will randomly kick me back out to the login screen.
Any ideas?
Greg

I was experiencing the same trouble, but disabling the midget porn site corrected everything.

A guy really shouldn’t have to disable his favorite website to browse a forum.

As for staying “logged in” try to think about baseball.

I know that's right!

I’ve found that happening when on travel and I suspect it’s an interruption in connectivity on your end. When I’m at home on WiFi it never happens.

So you’re saying you’ve whitelisted the midget porn site on your home network? Good idea. That is a tactical approach!

I think it’s tabbed browsing. I get logged out of the new tab.

Thanks! I needed that response today. :love:

It never really happened on my old phone and really only started on this phone this week. But now I often can't go through 3 or 4 posts without it logging me out, sometimes even one click...


It's really cutting into my monkey porn time... :banghead:

No problems here. Don't think it has anything to do with tabbed browsing, I browse DWC from multiple tabs all the time and never lose my login session. I sometimes get logged out when I switch networks, but that doesn't happen frequently/consistently.

I don't think there's any issue with the forum...

It happens almost 100% of the time I open a new tab on my work pc using Microsoft edge and 0% of the time on my home Mac. It’s definitely related to the new tab not remembering the log in.

It’s not just on dwc either. I assume it’s a settings thing.

Could be an Edge 'feature'. I don't use Windows.

It sucks ass. That machine has dual xenon chips and a million gigs of ram and it's still not fast.

i don't use edge, i use chrome. and i always view DWC in the same tab, no new tabs.

this is the only forum i have this problem with (including other phpBB forums).

don't know what the difference is. who knows, maybe some extension i use doesn't play nicely with some setting here?

Could be, although there's nothing special about the way the forum handles sessions. But you could try systematically disabling extensions and see if that changes anything.

FWIW I use Chrome on a variety of Macs and my Pixel 2 and am almost never logged out.

Combo of chrome and Tapatalk for me amongst iPhone, Mac, and Windows PC. I get logged out once every few months or so at most...

:shrug:

We’ll keep trying to narrow it down.

No issue here.
The only other forum I’m active on has a rule that logs you out when you change networks X times, so I usually experience that when traveling for work.

I use Safari. Pretty much have to login every time I visit. Hell I have stopped posting bc if it.
Ironically when I went to post this it made me log in although I had already. So... yes.
Was that wrong? Should I not have done that?

I tried to look up a user to send a PM, which opens a pop up window... which I needed to log in to.

I never use Safari but I just tried it and didn't have any issue staying logged in. Two things to look at:

1) Are you checking the 'Remember Me' checkbox on the DWC login screen?

2) Is your browser configured to allow site cookies to be set? Go to Safari's Preferences > Privacy panel and make sure you have 'Allow from websites I visit' selected in the 'Cookies and website data' section.

I don't know about cookies, but "remember me" doesn't do anything.

It does, it remembers me ;)

Checking the 'Remember Me' box sets a long-lasting session cookie in the browser that will allow you to stay logged in across visits. If you have cookies disabled then the browser won't save that cookie and you'll be forced to log in frequently.

The 'Remember Me' feature works on every browser I've used to visit DWC.

i've definitely kept "remember me" checked every time i log in. and it's definitely saving cookies.

sometimes i'll go days w/o issues. then suddenly it'll happen constantly all day. once, every time i tried to reply to a post in RR, it logged me out when i hit submit. to the point that the third time, i remembered to copy my post so i didn't have to retype it all again. i think it took me 10 tries to get it to post w/o logging me out.

it's really random when it happens. the most common things I can think of are that it happens more often when replying (but not only then) and more often in RR (but not only there).
