System ignoring my request for permanent login
« on: August 17, 2015, 03:46:09 PM »

This has started recently, and it may be connected to my checking posts to the forum on both my iPhone and desktop PC.

Currently, I always request a permanent/infinite login on the PC but it seems to last for only about a day before I am prompted to login again. The iPhone login does seem to respect the request for permanency.

Both logins using my normal vof account, and both to the normal 'full interface' URL.

Anyone else seen this kind of symptom?

Yes, after I did change to private mode in Firefox on one of the computers. :|bl

Yes. My PC keeps the sign on.  My iPad loses it - variably - sometimes it'll stay overnight - sometimes it vanishes after and hour or less. It only happened after OS-8 was installed, and I use Safari. Yes, I've specifically enabled cookies for this site. OS 8.1 hasn't fixed it.

I think it's defo a Safari bug though: a bridge (card game) facility I wrote myself that keeps data as HTML5 [web data] also stopped performing properly at the same time.

I imagine 'private mode' on any browser will also note store any cookies?

Probably worth cleaning out cookies if this is a problem.

Do you mean OSX 10.8(.1)? If you manage to run OS8 on an iPad, I think your rating should be Magician, or Awesome, or Epic (as my younger generation contacts would have it!). ;D

Edited: just realised of course you are referring to iOS 8!! (so you are a human with normal abilities after all  ;) )

Deleting all melodeon.net cookies seems to have fixed it. Thanks!    vof

This sort of problem is usually something to do with cookies.
