Staying Logged In Issue
UPDATE: June 6, 2012—Expression Engine has provided an update which they claim takes care of the issue for most people. Since I’ve seen reports of new bugs introduced in the updateI am waiting a week before testing. I expect it will be about two weeks before I will be able to install their update. Sorry for any inconvenience this delay may cause but it is important that test their update on my test environment first.
This is a new thread dedicated to the “staying logged in” issue that has reappeared after I updated our backend to Expression Engine 2.4. The issue has been discussed in a few places but it would be more useful for me to consolidate the conversation to one place. Additionally, it provides a more prominent placement for the discussion.
This issue cropped up initially with our upgrade from Expression Engine (the Content Management System the site is built on) 1.6.8 to 2.3.1. At that point I was able to patch their code to fix things. Recently I upgraded our site to EE version 2.4 in order to take advantage of some features present in the new caching system I am using with the redesign. Since the update to 2.4, many users have been reporting problems staying logged in across devices. A few patches have improved things for a few users. Unfortunately, some users are still experiencing the problem. Thanks to an observation by Boteman, I believe I have found the cause of one of the problems with their new code. A few minutes ago I made another change to their code.
If you are experiencing the problem, I suggest you log off all your devices, clear all their site cookies, and log in again. Please report here whether the issue has been resolved.
Sorry for any inconvenience. Thanks to all the members who have provided feedback.
