Cry Like A Baby auto logging off - FIXED

Has a feature been added to log us off after a (relatively) short time? I seem to be expected to log in every few minutes now, whereas before I could stay on line for aaaaaaaaages?
Maybe its a change local to me??

I've been logged on since about 10 this morning and not had to log back in

Re: auto logging off

Try clearing your cookies and cache and log back in. It should help.

If you are logging in through a network/router, particularly the work related kind, the network addresses may refresh as a security measure and AO will think you have disconnected


I find it hit and miss. Sometimes I can log in on different PC's over the course of a few days and be remembered. Other times, I can turn one PC off and turn it on later and have to log back on - although this is the rarer of the two scenarios.

Re: auto logging off

I got logged out (after sitting idle for a bit) about half an hour ago. First time it has ever happened to me.

Re: auto logging off

It looks like the log-in portion of the main site has changed somewhat. As a result, I think I'm going to have to resort to using the "remember me" button. Normally I don't do that on any website. I log in and log out with each session -- mind you a session is what I determine it to be, and not what the computer decides it should be.

Re: auto logging off

I must be lucky, it's not happened to me and I've been on pretty well all day. Do you usually properly logout when you've finished for the day on here or just switch off ?

Re: auto logging off

Log in at the start of the day and log out when I shut down is my usual pattern. Today that doesn't seem to be enough. Now it's log back in every time I go away from the site for a while. I have to say it's annoying. That flash of black as the screen reverts to AO Modern from AO Classic is not good on my eyes.

Re: auto logging off

I never logoff. Therefore I almost never login. Not unless I clear down cookies etc. But I've not had it bomb me out for ages now. I notice nobody techie has joined in to help with any suggestions here I'm floundering

Re: auto logging off

I believe nothing has changed with regards to logging in, I have been logged in for about 3 months now!

Actually, I looked at the code on this new version of our site and looked at the old code, there are subtle changes. I have managed to duplicate the problem and will look for a fix. Those that are having NO issues, if you were to log out for any reason, a new cookie would be set and you to will have the problem. Basically dont log out if you can help it until we fix this.

Thanks for reporting.

Re: auto logging off - CONFIRMED BUG

It may be a life preserving feature?

More hopefully a job-preserving feature. Thanks for looking into it and reassuring me of my err insanity.

Re: auto logging off - CONFIRMED BUG

I think that i've fixed this problem, but as it's a logging in issue, it will only start to work for users after the next time you login again...we'll see how it goes...let us know how you get on.
