Not staying logged in

Post by Pigfarmer Jr »

Recently I've noticed that the "remember me" function isn't working. I'm using Chrome browser. Was there a change to the site or is it something I may have done?

This last instance I logged in, typed up some reviews (took over an hour) and then it prompted me to log in again. I unfortunately hit enter instead of back and lost the reviews. I'm not the most tech savvy, eh?

No changes that i know of, though, I don't honestly really "admin" the boards at the level of maintaining/updating the PHPBB software.

This comes up once a year or so. I'm just glad that for once it was someone other than grumpymike who brought it up, jeeze.

For the record, phpBB hasn't been updated in a while but there shouldn't be anything that causes the forum to simply drop connections. Sometimes we've seen this happen whenever we're getting a lot of spammer activity, like maybe phpBB tries to limit the size of the session table or something, which is asinine if so.

Also I guess it's possible that maybe there's some combination of browser and extension that might be causing something to happen? What browsers are each of you running, and do you have any extensions enabled?

This is the first time I've really noticed it (although if it only happened for a brief time in the past then I wouldn't remember) and it seems to have started approximately the same time we have the new locked Monkey business thread (although that could be coincidence.)

It doesn't bother me (too much) that if I log in and hit remember me and then go to another tab for a while and come back I have to log in again. It does bother me that I spend 45 minutes to an hour typing up reviews on the forum and I'm logged out before I can post. And honestly, now that I know about it, I'll just copy and save it, log back in and then post. It's the change that bothered me the most.

So let me be clear, no new ta... erm, I can live with it as is, but it was very annoying yesterday to lose all my reviews and have to do a single line summation of what I could remember. But that's life and the least of our worries, right?

Lol it logged me out when I hit “reply”.

I’m using iOS Safari ... extensions... just some limited adblocking that iOS allows. (1Blocker)

The locked monkey business forum would have nothing to do with this.

It doesn't sound like it's browser- or extension-specific, but it's possible that maybe there's been a change to how cookie domains work or something? Do you visit the forum via songfight.net or www.songfight.net? Browsers are getting stricter about how that works. I might set up a redirection to force everyone onto the same domain to see if that helps.

I always go through the link on the Songfight front page.

re: Monkey Business - yeah, I figured it was coincidence.. and I think it was a day or two after that when this started.. But it's been going on for a little while.

Not to jinx it, but it seems this weekend and today things are working very well.

Cool. I hope the combination of redirecting everyone to songfight.net (without the www) and the latest phpBB upgrade fixed this particular issue.
