Since 7.1.1 none of my ocPortal sites appears to be honouring its cookies. I've raised the times to 26, 28, 30, 36 hours, but my sites insist that I log in on each visit.

Browsers used:
  • Firefox ::: 5.0
  • Internet Explorer ::: 9.0.812.16421
  • Google Chrome ::: 12.0.742.112
  • Opera ::: 11.50.1074

Any advice?

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

Yes, I must say that I have the same problem. I was thinking that is was due to the fact that I use similar logins with most of my sites and that they are not unique domains or sub-domains, simply sub-folders to my public_html. My knowledge of cookies is too limited to fathom the spaghetti effect caused by different browser idiosyncrasies.O_o

You could probably adjust your cookie path in Setup->Configuration->Installation options. That would work well for a new site but it will mean users at existing sites will lose their cookies.

The other option would be to create unique cookies names for each site.

Thanks for the good tips Bob!

I'll look into that.

Become a fan of ocPortal on Facebook or add me as a friend. Add me on on Twitter.
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 ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • 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 ocPortal 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.
