Login Issues

Post by EXcorcist »

Sometimes when I do the login thing, it doesn't log me in and I have to re-login. But after that happens, all the posts that should be new are not set to new and I have to actually look at the time they were posted and figure out if I have seen them before... :x

That's a cookie thing...really hard for me to track down...

I'll see what I can do, but it's working fine for me here...

Yeah, cookie settings. I have several machines and even a 2003 server. So when I do it through the AD login, I have to do the double login thing. And on one machine, I have to do it logging in locally while another doesn't. Plus, if you have it remember password, that helped on one machine.

This happens to me every now and then. I usually just delete the cookie and log in again.

I'll see what I can do...but..meh. I hate cookies. All of that is mostly in the area of PHPbb and there's not a whole lot I can about it very easily (Yes thats right..blame the code you didn't make..good out! ;) )

If it's any help it usually happens when I try and log in from the front page of the website. It'll say I am logged in but after the redirect I am not logged in. It could be partly a session issue unless phpbb always goes to the cookie for login info.

All that login box is doing is taking whatever you give to it and passing it along to the phpbb login page which does all the actual login work. Hmm..

I usually eat the cookie and curse my computer, but I'm not really a techie...

Well, obviously I delete it by dipping it in milk and eating it.

Just an update on this one...I've reproduced the problem, but I'm still trying to figure out what's going on and what to do to fix it. At least it's just a minor annoyance.

It lies in the fuzzy area between where my code stops and where phpbb begins.
