Problems staying logged in or making posts?

If you are having problems it may be due to the need to check the box that says "Remember Me?" and which is found right next to where you login.

This applies also to difficulties in staying logged in as you try to post in the forums. You compose your careful reply only to find you can't post it! How frustrating. Try checking "Remember Me".

This is true especially if your internet service provider, such as AOL but not limited to them, changes your computer's IP address with almost every click which automatically logs you out unless you are choosing to use cookies.

Re: Problems staying logged in or making posts?

I am still having problems staying logged in. I checked the box, but still not working for me. I just recently switched from Internet Explorer to Mozilla Firebox. Any known issues with this browser and this website?
I have had no issues like this with all of the other vBulletin forums I belong to....

Re: Problems staying logged in or making posts?

Lots of guys around here using Firefox and haven't heard any complaints for a long time. I have used Firefox forever. and never have any problems here. Are you using the Add-on "No Script" ? There have been problems with "No Script" if you don't allow "yahooapis.com".

I also use "CookieCuller" and accept/save cookies from LRH but only up to the point of being logged in. After that I just take the cookies Len gives out and they go away each time I close Firefox.

Try clearing your browser's cache and cookies. We recently upgraded the software to the latest version and this has been a problem for a number of people. Clearing the cache and cookies has solved the problem for most.

This is "Teh Fixer," the LRH webmaster posting as sniper762mm (he sent his login details for me to test).

Re: Problems staying logged in or making posts?

Thank you sniper762mm, for letting me use your account for testing. Here's the real issue most people might be having:

This forum's previous software was the version that had that problem - maybe some of you remember it from December of last year. When I researched the problem a couple of you were having recently, the issue only appeared to have reoccurred with this newer version, which I installed just a week or so ago (I lose track of time when I have some of these all-nighters).

The actual problem seems to have been my making changes on the root level of this domain, longrangehunting.com. I noticed, to my alarm, that this site could be reached with any of several different URLs (website addresses). The site should be using only one URL structure, which is http://www.longrangehunting.com - all other pages of the site follow that, such as, http://www.longrangehunting.com/forums, http://www.longrangehunting.com/forums/f47/problems-staying-logged-making-posts-33818/, etc. But what I found instead was a URL structure that could allow anyone to access the site using http://longrangehunting.com (without the www.) and also using http://lenbackus.net/longrangehunting and http://longrangehunting.lenbackus.net (lenbackus.net is the server domain).

This was not a good situation for many reasons, so I fixed the problem. But what I didn't realize is that some of the members here have one of the now non-working URL structures in their browser cache and/or cookies. For those especially with the cookie domain set wrong, you will have trouble staying logged in. I used a code for this domain's root that forces every visitor, no matter what URL structure they use, to land here with the proper URL. You can try this yourself - type in http://longrangehunting.com (without the www.) and you will see that it automatically reverts to the URL with the www. part. Try any of the other URLs and they do the same.

I'm very sorry for those having a problem staying logged in. If you clear your browser's cache and cookies, the problem will go away. Unfortunately, this also means you will have to login to all your membership sites again.

So yes, it's my fault. Blame it on the damn webmaster. Not Len. He works hard to bring you the best website for the long range hunter. My job is to make it a secure and efficient site. Sometimes that causes problems for the visitors. This particular problem would have resolved itself in time, depending on how long your browser retains the cache and cookies.

Again, I'm sorry for the problems you're having. Clearing the cache and cookies will make it better.

Jim, the webmaster
