I cant seem to stay logged in for more than one day or two.

Sometimes Ill go to the forum and Ill see the guest panel on the main page (meaning Im not logged in).

This seemed to happen recently and my Firefox 3.0.3 is set to accept cookies from msfn.org. What could be wrong?

And one more thing, Im not clearing my cookies and its only this forum.

You guys are not alone. Happened to me too. Note, though, that MSFN just had its forum software upgraded. ;)

IPB 2.3.5 will solve the issue of Logging in all the time.

The latest version of IPB is version 2.3.5 so it isn't a typo.

Sorry but that is incorrect and the forums are up-to-date.

If Session Expiration is set (as it is on my board) then this behaviour is by design, as a security measure.

See IPB Getting Started Guide for details.

And I thought it's my customized Opera config again. Poor thing - I blame it for all sort of stuff, and it's innocent. :wub:

Opera doesn't even suggest "wand" password. It seems login info is stored/managed in cookies only.

This is not security, it's paranoia. :ph34r: Please change it.

It is not that and if it is we will not change it. Why MSFN never been hacked? What you think?
Anyway, we run IPB v2.3.6

Paranoia in a sense that it doesn't trust the user (or his browser).

My comment was directed to the authors of the software. It seems everybody is taking that route these days. Instead of securing a (comfortable) feature, they toss it away altogether.

But you're the boss. :)

So, is session expiration set or is it not? It is a somewhat frustrating problem, because it'll happen whilst I am posting a response, say. I get an error that I'm not logged in, and I have to log back in and paste my response (I now know to copy and paste EVERYTHING before hitting "reply", just in case!).

Always remember to check REMEMBER ME when logging in,this will prevent this..... (It is auto checked for me)

http://www.msfn.org/board/login.html

If you click the link above you will see "Remember me?" If it isnt checked,CHECK IT then re-login......... (You should stay logged in after this (UNLESS YOU CLEAR YOUR COOKIES OR CLICK LOGOUT))

If REMEMBER ME is not checked when logging in,your cookie is set to expire which is why you get logged out after a period of NO ACTIVITY..


Good luck :)

Ditto here. Just started having to login a few days ago (apprx beginning of this month November 2008).

Had this problem entire time using Opera 9.5x versions, don't remember ever logging in on the Opera 9.2x series.

When moving up from Opera 9.5x to Opera 9.60 on October 16, 2008, the login problem suddenly went away. Thought it was gone for good. Two weeks later it is back daily.

FWIW, I have noticed far less cookies accumulating in Opera 9.60 though.

But ... since I see others here citing Firefox I guess Opera can be ruled out now.

That Remember Me tick box is definitely checked. I even unchecked and checked it again.

Over, and out.

... Let him who hath understanding reckon the Number Of The Beast ...

Good luck my friend :)

Every 4ish hours, it happens, regardless of whether or not you click the "Remember me" link. Just FYI for those who are submitting that as a solution - it's not. Stop.
