Tech notice: problems with having to login multiple times

Postby Chick Dastardly » 29 Aug 2011, 10:35

Hello all :)

There's been problems since the new forum went online with people sometimes having to login multiple times, and they weren't sure why. If you want the explanation read through, otherwise the summary is:

I've added a file to the hosting so that anyone trying to load up the wrong address, gets the correct one instead. This means the "having to login again" problem should not happen again - so if it does please report the bug again.

The details (boring techy stuff)

The cookie that remembers who you are when you login is set to the address forum.bristolrollerderby.com, NOT www.bristolrollerderby.com/forum. But if you tried to load up stuff using the second format, it would work seeing as those two addresses are effectively the same thing. So it would work to show you the content, but wouldn't remember who you were, so as soon as you clicked somewhere else it would ask you to login again.

Now that there is a little file on the server watching out for addresses using the wrong format, and changing them to the correct format - then the problem should be fixed.So let me know if it continues to be a problem for anyone.

Ta!

Wow it never fails to wow me how you can talk serving cookies with no mention of milky coffee. ***baffled***

(desperately need an IT course that's updated for this millenium, or going to end up like my mum, who's scared of the play button in the dvd player)

:D

Basically there's a creature who lives in the server writing everyone's names down as they login - and he looks like this:
