Frequent logouts

Post by ZenithCKLW » Mon Nov 21, 2022 9:02 am

Not sure if anyone else encounters this issue. I visit the board through Firefox on iOS. It is configured to keep me logged in to this website. However, in the past 2 or 3 weeks, I am frequently logged out whenever I click anything to navigate through the site. For instance, I'll log in (again), and it shows I am logged in, then I'll read a thread, and I am logged out again. Or I'll log in, visit a forum section, click Mark Topics Read, and I will be logged out, and when I revisit after logging in again, the topics aren't marked read. Firefox doesn't appear to log me out of any other websites, although this is the only one I try to keep logged in all the time.

This is pretty intermittent, but happens more often than not. It also doesn't happen when I am visiting the site from Firefox on my laptop. Is this happening for anyone else?

I’ve gotten this on Safari on iOS for a while now… randomly logs me out after only a little bit. It lets me stay on for the session at least.

There are no site or server configuration settings from what I can see that would be causing this issue.

However, I will clear the cache to see if that fixes the problem.

Looks like it still happens to me when I mark topics as read. Thanks for checking into it. I assume its an issue on my end. Firefox on iOS went through some recent goofy updates lately and I suspect something broke.

Speaking of clearing cache, it actually logs me out when I clear my chrome app's cache

I nuked Firefox on my phone (cleared all history, cookies, cache, settings) and reset them, and it has been running smooth since I did that, so I think I'll consider this resolved.

That is what's supposed to occur. The server cannot pickup the "cookie" previously placed in your cache.
