Full Version: Why does the forum forget my login?
Dieselstation Car Forums > Forum Issues > Issues & Suggestions
Every now and then the forum software is forgetting my login as if I did delete my cookies - which I didn't (neither accidentally nor willingly). Sometimes I'm recognized for several days under my account and then - wham!, I am a guest.

Normal behaviour?
does it to me too, and I've heard complaints from others. Probably just a result of the upgrade we did awhile ago, which either introduced a bug or some sort of security thing that is pickier about your cookies or what have you.
i don't have an issue with cookies. but i do notice that if i switch from my mac to my pc and login.. it dumps the password. So what i did was download a fake User Agent extension for firefox which tricks the forums into thinking i'm on the same DS_xP.gif machine.. and it works great.
i had been bitching about this on IRC a few days back.
Yes it's very annoying! Now I have to remember my password
well.. let's see if this change will help. I've disabled stronghold cookies:

Create a stronghold auto-log in cookie?
If enabled, when a member logs in, an additional cookie is set which contains geographic information in a crypt to make cookie stealing almost impossible. Only turn off if users cannot stay logged in.

Maybe when you log out ,you don't click the "remember".We will not always complian . thumbs_up.gif
Maybe it's because.......

Who are you again?
I've actually had the forum software log me in as someone else when I've clicked on a link to a thread that they've sent to me via email.

Logs me right in as them. Even sent them a PM from themselves to prove that I was logged in as them.
