Why cant I stay logged in?

Post by Turkeytop » Sun Nov 04, 2018 7:29 pm

I'm having trouble posting. Every time I log in, some mysterious force logs me back out again, almost immediately.

It started happening to me today too. I even had it happen while I was writing a response in a thread - hit the SUBMIT button and then it told me I needed to log in. Sometimes it happens when I click on a forum, other times on a post. No apparent pattern.

EDIT - ok this is becoming aggravating. Forums for me right now are almost unusable. I keep losing responses after clicking SUBMIT as it goes back to the log-in page. Have tried 3 times now to respond to a thread in the sports forum with no luck.

Thanks for the info.

This appears to be a CloudFlare related issue, as I didn't start getting these reports until after I installed CloudFlare (midday Saturday).

I'll do my best to fix this!

Regards,

I've just loosened my IP validation settings in my Administrative Control Panel, loosened the maximum form submission time (it is now two full hours), loosened the security settings in CloudFlare, and changed the caching settings in CloudFlare.

I'm hopeful these measures will resolve your guys' post submission issues!!!

I apologize for the headaches this is causing.

I tested posting ability from two accounts on two devices (my PC and my Android phone) and did not encounter any issue.

I have confirmed this is indeed a CloudFlare issue:

I'm still monkeying around with CloudFlare.

SSL now seems to be working.

I will continue to keep an eye on things. Please share your experiences - good or bad - on this thread. Thanks.

Test. If this goes through, all appears to be resolved.
