Umm why does it appear that I am not logged in

Post by Monty Burns » Mon May 04, 2009 9:13 am

even after I "successfully" log in?

Also I don't appear to be able to mark resources as complete anymore which I assume is part of the log in issues?

In the mail Sobuno sent out he mentioned this issue about login. Definitely there is a problem but I believe they are working on it.

Details for the Devs, unless they have them already:
Logging in sends me back to login-page.
Logging in and clicking "new posts" takes me to the list of forum posts as if I was not logged in.
Reading one of the posts in the list I have the option to reply to posts as if I was logged in.

OK, so I was able to send my message, but that took me past several login-pages each step.

I am confident you manage to fix this issue, the world won't collapse I guess but ... 8) :P

Ahem, replying to posts is the only thing I can do.
I cannot go to User Control Panel.
I cannot go to Messages (top/left link).

I see a "sid" key as if local cookies are not working but an extended URL is used.

But I guess you already knew this ;)

And there is no way to keep the login over to the main site and watch "my stuff" over there, the login is lost.

But I was able to submit data via SWGAide.

Also, when I returned here after having closed the tab (FF 3.0.10), the "login" remained.

Even after exiting FF and restart it I was "logged in" and able to post this.

Or not, which I realize now:

Since I each time have to go through the login-page it is very much possible that the login is lost.
My assumption that I was logged in is based on the fact that I see the "Reply"-button, I assumed it is only visible when I am in a logged-in-state, am I wrong?

Heh, I entered an interesting thing worth mentioning:

I said that I could not go to the UCP. In fact, clicking the UCP link I am first sent to the login-page (becoming used to that now ;) ) but then the attempt to access these pages times out. The extended URL very much reads that a real attempt to access the UCP pages is being done, with a generated sid, but the attempt times out.

Since the messages area is in the UCP area I think that is why I cannot access the messages.

I changed the names of the cookies used for storing the session/login information. This should be the same as having all of you clearing your cookies (Which means you will all have been auto-logged out now)

The site works perfectly fine on my other account

I'm having problems staying logged in now as well. I'm also not able to stay logged in to update swgcraft for Starsider. I have the log me in automatically box checked, but everytime I click on a new link, I have to sign back in. Any help would be appreciated.

Hmm, only advice I can give is trying to clear your cookies then... That's what I did yesterday when I had problems (Although I only removed the SWGCraft.co.uk and SWGCraft.org cookies)

Now it works for, as a charm. Is it not that Hawthe was typing while you fixed this?

Everything I posted above now works :)
I have not restarted FF neither did I close any tabs nor cleared any cookies.

I deleted all the cookies and installed the lastest IE8 and I still will get logged off when trying to access my notifications or if I want to delete or edit my guards or just check the home page.
