Topic: Login issues.

Hey guys,

For some reason, I'm having to log in several times in order to post/reply. When I log in from the index page, I get the "thanks for logging in/Redirecting" message. Then when I click on an individual forum or topic, I'm forced to login several times in order to participate.

Regards

Hmm, I haven't had that happen to me.   Are you using the quick reply or the full reply?

Also, are you noticing any change in the URL from www. to no www (or vice versa)? That would cause you to have to re-login (though I'm not sure why that would be happening).

It seems to have fixed itself now. However this has happened twice in the past. I would log in from the index page http://www.railsforum.com then the whole redirect/successfully logged in message would appear. I also see the "Logged in as RailsRocks" on the top left. When I click on an individual forum thereafter, I see the login form displayed on the top left. Also, I do not see the "New Thread" button on the right side. Pretty strange eh?

Re: Login issues.

Oddly, this actually just happened for the first time to me.  I'd accidentally typoed my password, so it sent me to the "Wrong username/password" page.  Then when I reentered it said thank you for logging in but sent me to the main page still logged out.  Worked after that, though.

Happened again..:( Tried logging in from an individual forum and it kicked me back into the index page. Logged in a second time and it seems to work.

Re: Login issues.

Having the same problem here.  Havent' been able to log in for the past few days without requesting my password be reset and following the link from the email.  Once logged in, can't even change my password.

Re: Login issues.

Just to validate others' experience, I always have to log in twice.  I thought I was rushing the process, so I slowed way down, but it always goes the same way:  I get to the index page, click to log in, it looks as though I am being redirected, but when I get there, the login bit at the top is still there, and nothing is marked as "new" with the red marking.  I log in again, and all's well.

I am used to it now, and it doesn't bother me too much, but I thought I'd mention it in case someone over there wants to look into it.

BTW, once I get into the forum, it is a most satisfying experience!  I haven't asked too many questions, but I have learned a lot from the ones others ask.  The turn-around rate is astounding, as is the helpfulness of the replies.

Re: Login issues.

I'm the same, always have had to login in twice and it also logs me in on the second time.

Re: Login issues.

I use a variety of browsers - IE6 always wants me to log in twice, although when I click on the 'login' link it seems to pick up the cookie and logs me in without a password. But it didn't do that today, bizarrely. Firefox on WinXp usually asks me to log in, but then logs straight in without a password, and Firefox on Win7 and Fedora 12 works fine.

It does appear to be some kind of temporal sequencing issue.
