Comment: You probably think this comment is about you, don't you?
Ever since I began using the new site every time I go away for a bit I must log back in when I return. I've tried saving the shortcut from after I'm logged in, and the one from other posters but I'm still being logged out. I don't have this issue with the old site. Why aren't we still using that one?

Comment: You probably think this comment is about you, don't you?
The last three times I've logged in these were the pages my shortcut went to:

qhttp://palladiumbooks.com/forums/index.php

qhttp://palladiumbooks.com/forums/index.php

qhttp://palladiumbooks.com/forums/index.php

EDIT: Ignore the q in front of each URL. I just wanted to post the address and didn't know the forums now auto-link URLs.

I have the same problem. I never had this issue with the http://www.palladium-megaverse.com/forums version of the forums.

Same. Each time I visit the forums I have to log in, even though I check the box to keep me logged in.

it's due to the forum's back end thinking the other forum is the parent forum. The cookies need to be changed, and some minor changes.

Hi everyone, I've cleared the cache on the forums, so I'm hoping that will help. Please let me know if you're still experiencing this.

Thank you for your patience.

Hi All,
Another thing that may help is hitting the forums using: https://palladiumbooks.com/forums instead of http://
Part of the shift was upping our security a bit, we're not forcing everything to load https yet, but it may be good to see if that improves your results for anyone left having trouble.

I've been using that link since you posted it but now if I use it I'm in a never ending cycle of needing to log in, doing so, and being told I need to log in again. I had to go to the store and follow the link there in order to post this.

So we're just never going to be able to stay logged in?

That's understandable for the 1996 internet, not the 2019 internet.

There are two things that are at play:

1. Clear your cookies
2. Change your bookmarks to the following: https://palladiumbooks.com/forums/

Once you make that change, you should be fine.

When they switched to the new forum/board. They also changed how the cookies worked, and make the site secure, hence the https://

Deleting the cookies is needed to clear your old cookies out of your browser and allow you to stay logged in.

A permanent fix for the site is for the board owners to create a .htaccess file that forces everyone who goes to http://palladiumbooks.com/forums to go to https://palladiumbooks.com/forums/

Instead of trying to delete all your cookies this might work too for people:

Found a work around that seems to have worked. I had him go into his full history then pick any of the Palladium Forum Histories, then right click on that and select "Forget About Site" and then go back to the webpage and try to log in.

Clearing cookies only seems to work for one login, and once that session ages out it goes back to the endless loop of being unable to stay logged in past the login confirmation page.

The board's cookies are just misconfigured.

Are you using the link Tiree posted? That one has been mostly trouble-free for me. I had the same issue a couple nights ago but I'm suspecting now that it was due to the boards being down for some reason.

So far I've replicated the problem on six distinct browser configurations including Chrome, Firefox, and Edge for Windows, as well as Chrome, AdBlock Browser, and Samsung default browser for Android. It really does seem to be a cookie problem.

Well short of asking to try it with your phone and see what happens I'm out of options.

I had already tried it on mobile (several different Browsers on Android 8 and 9), but the issue turned out to be related to bad session keys being generated by the forums.

It's not a perfect solution, but waiting a day or two for the thirty-odd bad session keys it generated to age out and suddenly persistent login works fine.
