Cookies not working?

Post by Kalledon »

I have to keep logging into the forum each time I visit, even though I check Remember Me

Cellphone?

If your ip address keeps changing the cookie will invalidate(set for class C). Also it seems to only allow 1 valid cookie per user currently so if you login somewhere else, that will invalidate any previous cookies that were set.

I'd check the host server's date and time settings.

For my session ID cookie (phpbb3_a8qxv_sid, presumably), I'm getting an expiration of 2017-02-16T21:40:35.878Z.

Translated to my time zone, the session is set to expire Thu, 16 Feb 2017 1:40:35 PM, which is 24 hours ago.

Edit: Could also just be set to only allow the session to be active until the browser window closes.

Session ID isn't the remember me cookie.

Roger that. IIRC, all three cookies I saw at the time had the same expiration date in the past, but now I see none, so I'm just going to let this site do its own thing and hope it doesn't take notice of me.
