I've gotten a report from a user about them being automatically logged out when attempting certain actions on our site, using Internet Explorer, won't bore you with details.

When trying to investigate, I noticed that I was unable to login using IE8. The "users online" block would report me as logged in but anything else that depended on being logged in seemed to think I was not logged in.

Clearing the cache and cookies fixed this for me but rooting around the forums here I saw a reference to there being potential problems with IE submitting forms in this thread - - View topic: Upgrading to 4.2 RC1

but couldn't really see any more info on it…has anybody else experienced problems with logging in/form submission in IE8 or are there any known issues here?

Any insight appreciated…

Hello Andrew,

Do you have any addons installed into IE?

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Hi Chris,

No add-ons at all. Haven't had the problem since clearing the cache and haven't heard any more complaints from users so unfortunately I don't really have any more information that I could give you. A bit mysterious…
