    Issues staying logged in

    Keep getting logged out of the forum when posting messages, PM'ing, or trying to view larger pics. Have tried multiple browsers and OS's same issue. Have to login multiple times and post same message several times before it sticks

    I've been having this issue for a few weeks. I've tried using different OS (Win 7, Win 10, Linux Mint, IOS) and several different browsers.

    I get logged out when I move from one page to another or when I try to edit a post / send a PM.

    Tried resetting my password which didn't help.

    In fact when I tried to edit this post i got a pop up stating 'You do not have permission to perform this action. Please refresh the page and login before trying again.'

    Took 2 or 3 goes to get the edit to take.

    Afternoon Gents,

    Yeah, I've had the same experience as you all over the last few weeks / months, and it was infuriating so I share your pain[s]... I solved it by ticking the Remember Me checkbox just below the password input box on the log in screen and it's been fine ever since, no random logging out at all and when one logs out you still gets the usual 'all cookies cleared' message in the centre of the screen.

    I aways / only ever use Firefox for the Forum.

    Hope this helps.

    It seems that if I do anything at all, change pages, write a post, etc, I always get logged out. I've cleared cookies, rebooted, changed browsers, etc, but it hasn't helped. I can log in ok, but doing anything after that gets me logged out even though "remember me" is checked. Its almost like the timeout for auto logoff is set to 30 seconds or something.


    PS Curiously, I just sent a note to Jim the admin, but was redirected to the login page instead, so I rewrote it, and was notified I have to wait 60 seconds to make another post. But since I apparently wasn't logged in when I made the first one, why is it telling me to wait 60 seconds? It seems to know I just made a post so I must have been logged in, but then keeps redirecting me to the login page as if it doesn't.

    As above that's all I did as well and it works,
    tried it on Windows 7, 8 & 8.1

    The Tapatalk is possibly a separate issue.
