signing me out after each visit? - Page 2

post #21 of 26
You're welcome! Has the change in the session timeout setting helped?

No, it isn't helping. I appreciate the help, though, and hopefully it will be fixed soon enough!

48 hours? I still can't make it more than a couple....and it isn't a huge deal. Just minorly irritating!

Darn. I'll change the session timeout to a more reasonable time.

Let's give it the weekend and see if the problem has resolved itself on Monday. For those who want to try it, you can manually remove your mothering.com/www.mothering.com cookies and login again. Some have reported that to resolve it for them. Here's what the vB dev wrote:

PL2 changes the main Cookie Salt - which invalidates everyones forum cookie, meaning they will be logged out when their session expires. When they login again they must check remember me to store the details again.

Anyone still having issues after that has a corrupt cookie, and should delete it (sorry, but how depends on your browser).

I can reproduce the behavior exactly as described.
The behavior I'm looking at is:
1) User logs in, clicking remember me
2) Salt string changes (upgrading to PL2 causes this).
3) User is logged in
4) Session times out (or session cookie manually removed)
5) User is logged out, despite having clicked remember me.
6) User logs in again, clicks remember me.
7) User is logged in.
8) Session times out (or session cookie manually removed)
9) User is logged in.

I'm working with FF3.5.6 at the moment, which was one of the reported problem browsers. This is the expected behavior from the code.
I have read elsewhere that you should close all browser windows before removing cookies. For those who delete from their browser, close all browser windows/tabs except one and delete your mothering domain cookies. Then shut your browser down and restart it. Then you can log back in, being sure to click the "Remember Me" box and see if you stay logged in.

Clearing my cookies and restarting my computer seems to have resolved the issue. Thanks!
