Thanks for helping me troubleshoot, Arcturus.

The cookies should be there, and 11 is right (turns out my ad blockers were blocking 6 of them, which tells me you don't have an ad blocker :), but I wanted to make sure they were there initially to see if your browser was storing them at all. And they should repopulate after you removed them and logged back in, so that's expected behavior as well.

I've made a couple changes to how sessions are validated that I hope will fix it, let me know if you still have the issue.

Okay. Check. So something is happening when I try to put an attachment in my post.

Discuss.

Keep getting logged out.. deleted cookies, and using an iPad Autumn 2019.

I haven't got the time to spend the time reading something that is telling me nothing, as I will never be able to get back that time, and I may need it for something at some point in time.. Wait, What! - MagsJ

Can you be more specific?

I know this seems pedantic, but can you be more specific? I flushed the site sessions, which should force everyone to log in (possibly more than once), but that shouldn't be an ongoing problem.

I just got logged out, again, when quoting this post to reply to.. or is that because you recently reset something, just now?

OK, cool. Still tweaking settings on the backend, any better now?

I think I figured out what was happening. I set up Cloudflare, which is a service that can filter out spam and denial-of-service attacks. To do that, it passes all traffic through its servers, so when it hits ILP's servers it's all coming from the same place. But the forum software was checking where requests were coming from as part of its validation of users. Since now all traffic is coming from the same place, that validation was giving funny results that caused some users to be logged out. I disabled that check, so it should work correctly now [-o<

I'm not sure why it only affected some users (or, in my case, why it affected my access to some parts of the site and not others), but it does seem to be a known issue with using Cloudflare and one I should have been aware of before setting up the service. My apologies to everyone affected.

Yes, Carleas. So far so good though I do not foresee any more problems...at least not for now.

Thank you for taking the bull by the horns and hurling him back into space where he belongs.

Well done!

Felix qui potuit rerum cognoscere causas.
Virgil

:angelic-flying:
"Look closely. The beautiful may be small."


"Two things fill the mind with ever new and increasing admiration and awe, the oftener and more steadily we reflect on them: the starry heavens above me and the moral law within me."


“Whereas the beautiful is limited, the sublime is limitless, so that the mind in the presence of the sublime, attempting to imagine what it cannot, has pain in the failure but pleasure in contemplating the immensity of the attempt.”

Immanuel Kant

Thanks Arc, though to be honest I never do more than humbly pray that the bull spare us our suffering, for we are truly at his mercy and unworthy of his love.
