I'm going to be removing that way of logging in soon. If you're still
having problems, then I need you to email me your username and password
so I can troubleshoot.

I sent you a PM, Uckelman, hoping for some help. Right now, the only way I can log in is by replying to a forum message.

Thank you in advance.

I'm replying here with the same thing I said in the PM:

I can't reproduce this. When I log in as you, it works fine for me.

Are you behind a caching proxy? What happens if, when you see a page which
says you're not logged in when you expect to be, you force the page to
reload?

I don't know what to say. It seems to be working right now. I just navigated all over the site and stayed logged in. That wasn't like that before...

I did try opening another window and being logged in in two different windows. It's not a huge deal, but I was unable to log in in the second window while remaining logged in in the first window.

I'll be in touch if it stops working. :D

Thank you for looking into it.

I tried refreshing the page when I was having the problem... No luck.

All's good today. Hopefully tomorrow's the same.

If you're logged in, but then your browse to another page where it says you're not logged in, please check the URL of the not-logged-in page. I have a suspicion that the domain will be vassalengine.org instead of www.vassalengine.org. The next time this happens for you, check the URL and let me know whether my suspicion was right.

If this is happening for you, it's due to the domain specified for the site cookies. The site cookies are all for the www.vassalengine.org domain, so if you go to vassalengine.org without "www", the relevant cookies aren't presented to the web server. I'm looking into whether I should (1) remove the "www" from the cookie domain, (2) redirect vassalengine.org to www.vassalengine.org, (3) redirect www.vassalengine.org to vassalengine.org and remove the "www" from the cookie domain, or (4) something else.

Also, if you're having login problems, try deleting all of the cookies your browser has from vassalengine.org. I just corrected a small problem with the way cookies are sent, which might make a difference for logging in.

uckelman whatever you did does seem to have fixed the problem. I can now log in and access all areas. :lol:
