Are You Having a Problem Staying Logged In?


Since the code upgrade, some members have been having problems staying logged in. The fix for this is to logout, remove all LQ related cookies and then log in. Sorry for the inconvenience.

No problem staying logged in but the "0 replies" is giving odd results. Once it gave me 0 replies but for the most part it is giving no results found. The odd thing is that when it did give me 0 replies the one time it gave the no results message when I clicked on 2 to go to the 2nd page. Then when I tried 0 replies again it went to no results.

On the other hand "new posts" is showing many 0 replies along with the others so appears to be working correctly.

If simply deleting the cookies doesn't work - try this:

Verify that cookies are enabled in your LQ profile, log out, make sure to remove all LQ related cookies, close your browser, verify that you are allowing cookies in your browser and that no third party software is blocking them...finally log in again. I've yet to run across a member yet that this didn't work for. If you do continue to have problems, please post in this thread. Thanks.

I did delete all the cookies, and I still have the problem. I think the security is just a little bit too thight now, I just lost a message which took me 20 minutes to compose

The security isn't any "tighter" than it was in the old system. Are you sure you got all LQ cookies? Did you attempt to do what was in my last post? Someone else mentioned that they also cleared their LQ password from Firefox, but to be honest I don't think that should be an issue. Who else is having a problem?

Just to elaborate a bit on Jeremy's comment about "all LQ cookies", depending on which parts of the site you have visited it's possible that you can have several cookies, all of which should be deleted. Examples:

bookmarks.linuxquestions.org
iso.linuxquestions.org
jeremy.linuxquestions.org
linuxquestions.org
wiki.linuxquestions.org

I encountered this issue myself, and as described the solution was simply to scan through my entire cookie list and remove all cookies associated with LQ. Close the browser, then make sure that when you return to LQ, you indicate that you "Accept all cookies from this site" (ie, LQ). Overall the process should take less than a minute or two.

OK, tried again. Cleared all cookies from Linuxquestions.org. (I assume that this is the only domain I should clean)
Closed the browser, opened it again. Logged in.
So far, so good, could reply immediately without logging in again.
BTW, I use Opera 8.5.

The wiki.linuxquestions.org will not have any impact at all. http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...28#post1983028 may also help.

I did something different as I saw this happen.

I used the login form on the top right instead the big one that appears when you click on "submit", after this I have had no further login problems and I haven't done anything with the cookies.
