The forums won't keep me logged in

Postby Richelle » Fri Nov 14, 2008 10:49 am

Help me Ulwar, you're my only hope!

So yeah, the forums make me log in every time I visit, even though I have the box checked to keep me logged in. Any way to fix this?

Typically, that is a carryover problem from the old forums. Clear all cookies, log in again, and you should be golden.

I have heard this somewhere before.

I have heard this somewhere before as well. You could work for Blizzard. Although the WTF folder would never cause problems on the forums so maybe not.

I agree ... except that in my case, it works. And whoever named that folder needs a lesson in TLAs. ;)

I think somewhere along the lines in creating the game they realized that stuff in that folder would be the source of all their problems and named it appropriately.

Hey Rich - I had this problem also. Ulwar came up with the brillant solution that I wasn't adding the "www" to the front of my azergarde.ca address. Once I stopped being lazy and added the "www" to my bookmark everything has since worked fine for me.

OMG Richelle don't keep us in limbo. The intensity is just too much. Did you get it fixed? Is Ulwar still the genius, or is Holmes/Kwag taking the upper hand on this one? We must know!

Chiming back in here ... Holmes advice came from me, and IIRC it was more about not being able to see the DKP page, not staying logged in. The cookies for the boards are set for the whole domain azergarde.ca and so *should* work either way. The DKP system though is quite specifically looking for "www.azergarde.ca", and so having the "www" is quite important. But if any of this fixes it, I'm still a genius. :)

You're all geniuses! :D

I cleared my cookies AND changed my bookmark to include www both at the same time.

One or both of those did the trick as I've been able to stay logged in since then.
