Staying logged in

Postby QueticoBill » Sun Jul 23, 2017 8:21 am

I had stayed logged in for several years but past few weeks it seems I get logged out frequently. In fact, I was logged in when I clicked new post for this thread and it said I had to log in to post. Likewise, I can he logged in and if I click on a link to a build thread in someone's signature, I'm logged out. Is it just my device or are others having issues with this?

Thanks!

If my memory is any good, others have posted, that they were having the same problem. Sadly I don't recall if they posted a solution. I do find that when I switch to one of my other access devices I have to login with the new device. Then when I move to another I have to login with the next device. But I've not had a problem when continuing on the same device.

Thanks. At least it's not new and I'm not the only one without a solution. Odd that it's a new occurrence, and no other changes I know of.

There might be a time factor involved...my longer posts always require me to use my computer notepad to save what I've written, just in case it all goes away during a preview or submit failure. I used to use the saved draft feature, until it also started dropping my info, and requiring me to log back in. I've had this occur for 3-4 years, and recently had similar problems on Expedition Portal, so it might have something to do with my local ISP. Just like at work, before I retired, I have to develop and use "WORK AROUNDS" to get anything posted. At work, it was two different IT teams not on the same page, at home, maybe just my luck with computers?

I recently joined, and I noticed problems with being/staying logged in right away.

Even when I went to make this post, the screen showed me being logged in, but when I clicked the Post icon, it defaulted to the login screen.

In fact, my first post herein was a nice, but long, intro. When I clicked submit, it defaulted to the login screen and I lost the whole intro narrative. I was so disgusted that I chose to not do it again. After that, I copy what I've written before clicking submit, in case the system forces its loss again. And it's happened several times.

The screen shows me logged in, but on initial posts and edits sometimes it's not telling the truth, and defaults to the login screen.

And sometimes I have to log in several times for it to stick.

It's rather irritating.

Mine did this for years with no resolution since it was not the forum's fault but the fact that I used satellite internet and the location of the satellite messed with my time zone when I posted so it was good upon logging in but 2 min later I was logged out and the frustration of losing a well thought out post is real. It only resolved myself when I was able to get real internet. If this is not your issue, I would check the settings in the forum to ensure the daylight savings and the time zone settings are correct.... and just because I am so conditioned to being scared... Right as I end this post I hit select all -> COPY.

"I would check the settings in the forum to ensure the daylight savings and the time zone settings are correct...."

I looked and have not found where I can do that.

I am on satellite internet.

I participate in another forum and the issues herein with login and staying logged in are not present on the other forum. It's unique to this forum.

Go to User Control Panel at the top then select Board Preferences. but you just said you were on satellite like I was so you may be out of luck. I had the same issue with other forums working.

I followed your path as directed, and found the place where time zone is. I'm on eastern zone, which is correct. I turned the DST box ON.

So, we'll see.

As I said, I regularly post on another forum, and the issues I've had herein with login are unique herein.

Besides, I cannot understand how login could possibly be tied to whether I have the time zone setup correctly. Or whether I'm on satellite or not.

If the router shows I'm connected to the net by Wi-Fi, how is it possible for this site to go past that and mess with whether I'm logged in or not? If I wasn't connected to the net, then I wouldn't be able to login again, or even see tnttt site at all.
