Can't log in
« on: November 29, 2017, 10:54:07 AM »
Having to post this from my cell.

Haven't been able to log in on my laptop all day. Keep getting the following:

Your session timed out while posting. Please go back and try again.

ID is saved for auto login but tried manually typing in too. Have cleared cache, restarted both browser and laptop  and nothing works. Was fine yesterday before all of the downtime for upgrades yall were doing.
I frequently have no idea what I'm talking about. Like now.

I'm glad I found this thread.  I thought it was just me and didn't think about the phone.

Same problem.  Thought maybe I had finally been banned (or something).

I had this problem as well.  I can login now...  Not sure if it was fixed or if it was an issue with my work browser.

MOD NOTE:
Thanks for reporting, everyone.

This appears due to a recent forum software upgrade.

We will work on tracking down the source of this issue.

I believe its now been resolved, let me know if you still have issues!

Technical Reason why this happened:

The newest version of the forum software introduced some extra security features, one of which checks for your current session time (login period) to prevent certain kinds of attacks.

This checking code was missing from the theme code that displays the forum software, so whenever you logged in, you would always have a "timed out" session, as the check was missing.

This checking code was added which should resolve this problem.

It works for me now, too, but just a note that I had to close out of the browser first.

"An Error Has Occurred!

Sorry Kimera757, you are banned from using this forum!
This ban is not set to expire."

That's what it says when I log in on my preferred browser, Firefox. I hadn't posted in a while and wondered if I had actually been banned, and if so why (and couldn't search my post history to check). But then I noticed it blocks me there even if I log out, turn off my VPN, etc.

I don't know if the fault is with this forum or the newest version of Firefox.

You clearly aren't banned (or you couldn't login or post, from any device)... I'd normally think IP overlap, but weird that it's only happening in one browser, when they'll clearly share one (unless you have a VPN just for that browser or something).

Clear the cache/cookies in Firefox?
