After changing my password, I get booted off FS
« on: November 13, 2010, 06:50:56 pm »
I changed my FreeSangha password. Now, after a period of time, I am automatically logged out. When I go to log back in, I get an error message that directs me to check my cookies. I delete all FS related cookies, and only then can I log back in. After a period of time, I am automatically logged out.

I would suggest:

Change your password to something irrelevant, then get someone with mod access to change it to what you really want.

Yes, still occurring. I use MAC OS and Safari for a browser. However, it also happens when I am accessing from my iPhone, so it seems like the problem is on the server end? Could it be that the Portal and the FS main site have different passwords?

When you log on the first time, there is a screen that offers the opportunity to set the auto logoff function's time limit. As I recall, the default is not very long, and has to be manually set to "no auto log off" by setting the time limit to infinity. Would this account for the problem? It's a very easy thing to miss.
