Weird login-related problem

Post by anonsubmitter » Fri Apr 24, 2015 10:15 am

I was going to bump an old report of mine, so I logged in and then clicked the link to the thread from my browsing history via the address bar. When the thread had loaded I was not logged in there, but I was logged into all other areas of the site that I tested. I then accessed the thread via this forum's search box and then I was logged in and it worked normally.
The thread: viewtopic.php?f=62&t=22045

Update:
I'm having that same problem with this thread as well. It appears that this problem arises when I'm trying to access threads via links that aren't bloated.
I.e. viewtopic.php?f=9&t=22428&p=69590&sid=f ... 2aa#p69590 works properly, but viewtopic.php?f=9&t=22428 does not.

It would depend how your browser is storing cookies. The first link includes sid (session ID) and as long as you use that you're fine until that session expires. I would have to check how long but more then likely its several hours long. Your second link has no session ID thus when you click on it and you're not saving cookies then you'd have to login again.
