Same problem here. The session length times out almost instantly. Has been happening for the past 36-48 hours (so far).

Hi

Me too...

As a side note, and on my iphone, the top menu (hamburger icon) opens to reveal 'News', 'Community' etc, but when you press the link the menu closes and you are not redirected anywhere

Keep being logged out of this forum...?

Post by DavetheCat » Sun Dec 18, 2016 8:12 pm

Hello!

Just wondered if anyone else was having a problem with being logged out of here lately...

All of a sudden, I keep getting logged out of this forum. If I log in without ticking the “remember me” box I can’t view my own posts, or use the search function. Also, after logging in, a few times I have tried to search and get a message saying I’m not allowed to use the Search function.

I only noticed this yesterday, but it's happening again today. I haven't been on for a while, and it always used to be fine, is there a current issue with the forum….?

Just wondering that before I go looking for solutions with my computer / browser etc. (I have cookies enabled, and have tried clearing cache, restarting computer, but that didn't help). I'm not having any issues with other forums.

Any clues appreciated!

Hi, i also have the same issue. Thought it was related to my own problem about logging in impossible due to session or something.

The next version of what, specifically? This forum does not use the Joomla CMS software.

The forum uses PHPBB but I don't have any such issues as described, so could conclude (unless proven incorrect...), that it's not a system wide problem (with PHPbb itself).

@DavetheCat - one issue I could think of that might explain this is some sort of auto-expiry on the session although you seem to have checked for those sorts of problems.

Does it work with other browsers - and what browser were you using to begin with?

I can't explain why the session times out almost instantly but this has been ongoing for the past four our five days. I've done the usual things: blown away the browser cache; used Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer (gasp - shudder), Google Chrome; six different PCs/mobile devices, three different IP addresses ...

This time I used the "remember me" checkbox ...

Usually it takes me about 20 attempts to login and about the same number to reply to a post.

If the intention was to minimise spam then it was 95% effective but it's also blocking legitimate attempts to login and use the forum. :eek:

As a follow-up to this topic and other related topic viewtopic.php?f=562&t=943190, using the "remember me" checkbox at login time seems to be a way to work through the issue.

Forum login bug

Post by HelpJ » Mon Dec 19, 2016 7:47 pm

I just cant use this forum from today. I can login, but if i want to post, replay or see new posts, it keeps log me out.
For writing this i must login at least 5 times. Try with latest chrome and FF.

Thank you for pointing me in right direction. Remeber me it seems does the job for now. But i think it should be resolved and treated as a bug?

Strange, the forum has now been kicking me out this morning (20/12/2016). It seems like the session is expiring frequently (no more than a minute or so) of "non-activity" and kicks me out in the middle of composing a message.

Another strange behaviour - if I click "Log out" - it won't log me out!
Joomla Forum wrote: Information:

Normally if it's an "invalid security token" issue (like on users' joomla sites) it usually won't let you log in. Given this is PHPBB and not actually Joomla, I don't know that's it's the same or similar thing.

The issue was in the caching by the CDN and it has now been fixed.

I am still facing same issue. On every click, I am being logged out and need to login again even after I click remember me.

Hope this will get resolved soon.

Thanks

Just started to log me out every time I moved away from the forum today 12/22/2016. Afraid it isn't fixed at all!
