Not setting cookies?

Sometimes we want to talk about non-FG topics; when we do, we post them on this board. Basically anything off-topic or that doesn't belong elsewhere in the forum belongs in here.

Not setting cookies?

Post by RedBlack » Thu Mar 05, 2015 6:41 am

Despite regularly checking the auto-login box, the forum never remembers me or my password.
Is it possible you're not setting cookies? I allow them, so I don't think it's me.

Not a big issue, but if you put in a checkbox, it should probably work.

Hmm, it remembers mine. Will investigate...

** edit // Update

I checked the settings in depth. It seems that everything is set for the cookies to work without any further changes, so not sure what's happening there.

It is possible (I guess) that the forum's security settings are somehow kicking in, but I can't imagine why that would affect a user in good standing like yourself.

Still not remembering me on Chrome Version 38.0.2125.104.

Cookies set:

phobb3_fedxe_k, phpbb3_fedxe_sid, phpbb3_fedxe_u

I'll try Safari and Firefox... Not a big issue, just a pain.

-- Safari doesn't work either. Sure, if I don't log out, or let it use it's own keychain, but that's not what the checkbox implies.
-- Firefox12 doesn't work either.

So very strange, this issue is.

I'm not having any issues at all with Chrome on Mac (version 41.0.2272.118). Not sure about the others, as I tend to only use Chrome. I can have a go with the other browsers and see whether I get different results, but everything seems to be working perfectly from here on the cookie front as far as I can see. :?

I've checked the cookie settings and there are no options to turn them on or off, or reset, or anything like that. Otherwise everything seems in order on the admin end.

I'm at a loss as to work out why this is happening... :(

Ok, no worries. I'll let Firefox fill out the data from its keychain.

(I used Chrome for years until last week when researching the cookies. Firefox works a bit better with my wiki, so I'll be on that for a while. I'm feeling a bit anti-Google at the moment and have moved to Duck Duck Go for searching.)
