Why Does CT Keep Logging Me Out?


Always have this issue where I login, then go to post or reply, and it has logged me out. Not sure what’s going on?

Any ideas?

Re: Why Does CT Keep Logging Me Out?


It's been an issue now coming up on a half a year and from what we're told, they haven't found out the reason, so you have to use a workaround...

When you get to the site, before logging in, you click on "Forum" first and it will bring you to this page... http://www.contractortalk.com/forum.php

...then you can log in there...

Keep in mind though, that there will still be parts of the site that look like you're logged out (like when clicking on the "My Account" button in the upper right), but you're actually still logged in...

Re: Why Does CT Keep Logging Me Out?


This is the full workaround until they find a fix.

There is currently an issue with the front page of the site.

If you login from the homepage of the site, it will confirm you are logged in, but if you click on forums, you are no longer logged in and it just keeps taking you around in a vicious circle.

To fix it you have to log completely out from both of these pages.

http://www.contractortalk.com/
http://www.contractortalk.com/forum.php

Then go ONLY to the forum page to login.

http://www.contractortalk.com/forum.php

For now (until they figure out a fix) do NOT use the home page.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Yeap, this is happening to me too. So, logging in only from forums page. Maybe you could have this say on the homepage until it's fixed. Would help a lot.
