Re: Keeps Logging Out


Try scrolling down , you might have the same problem a lot of us are having now .

The screen will be white but, if you scroll down the CT page will show up.

Re: Keeps Logging Out


Oh that problem , sometimes I have to log in two or three times, I quit logging out to avoid the hassle. It helps to open a thread and login , sometimes

Don't log in on the site's home page, log in on the forum page. Known issue.

Unfortunately, that workaround is not working anymore... it does the same as the home-page now... you login but it shows you're not logged in...

New workaround to be able to stay logged in is...
1. Go to "FORUM" and login (it'll show you're not logged in)...
2. Go to "My Account" on top right of page and click on "My Profile", and then login again... (it'll show you're logged in)
3. Then go to "Forum" and "New Posts", then choose a thread... and login again...
Seems only then will it show you logged in at "Forum"' and everywhere else and won't bump you out...

All these other issues listed below remain and are a crap shoot from thread to thread (refreshing sometimes "updates" it)...
Forums Aren't Up To Date On Computer.... http://www.contractortalk.com/f45/fo...mputer-412315/

Pages Keep Moving... http://www.contractortalk.com/f45/pa...moving-412307/
So unless someone else has another workaround, the only workaround that seems to mitigate most if it is the three-step login above...

Needless to say... PITA... only to be endured by the most committed CT users...

Re: Keeps Logging Out


It begs the question... after almost a year, is there a reason why it's not fixed being a known issue but instead seems to be getting worse?...

Does it have to do with the recent move to the cloud maybe?

Re: Keeps Logging Out


Kap, I have never had to go through the shenanigans you describe, and I doubt anyone else has either, or this place would be a ghost town.

As for how long the problem has existed... whatever. Give it a rest.

I'm only describing what's happening now... if you've got another workaround, fill us in...

As you can see with the other links above, I'm not the only one having login issues... all I did was give a workaround for others to try that seems to be working...

Give what a rest?!... I've literally asked about the login issue 4-5 times over the past year...

How about simply answering an earnest question so we have an appreciation of what the issue is... if you don't know, tell us that... if it's the new normal after a year, and is unlikely to be resolved, tell us that...

But the "it's been reported" or "it's a known issue" doesn't tell us anything or keep us informed...

Re: Keeps Logging Out


I don't think I've ever been logged out by the forum. I didn't fully read all of your "work around" instructions but I can tell you what I do.

CT stays open in a Chrome tab, I never get logged out, and I use the forum. If I clear my cache and cookies, I log back in, and it doesn't log me out.

I log in on whatever page I'm on (home screen, a post, etc)

Re: Keeps Logging Out


is this a browser specific issue?
Or a cookie issue in the browser? if the cookie is still saved in the browser, then it should keep the user logged in.

Re: Keeps Logging Out


The homepage login issue "should" now be resolved.
