Getting auto signed out, and redirected

19 posts in this topic

When I login, the first time I click sign in, it reloads the page. I click sign in again, it logs me in, and for some reason redirects me to the GNR Women's thread. If I try to get to Anything Goes, it signs me out. Dolphin Browser, Android 4.4.

It happens every time you sign in on a new device. Itll stop in a week or two

Next time you get logged out, refresh a bunch of times until it goes away.

Dolphin uses the Chrome source code as it's base which has the same issue for reasons I don't quite understand. Since refreshing seems to fix it, I expect it's cache related.

I did just clear my cache a couple days ago.

Sometimes that fixes it, sometimes that causes it. Weird eh?

Anyway it happened to me again recently. The refresh fix sounds weird, but it does work:

So I did a bit of searching on the Invision forums and found a couple of other customers with the same issue. There seems to be two things at play:

1. You go to a page and get logged out

2. You go to a subforum and it's a version from weeks/months ago with old notifications displayed, etc

The first issue has been formally acknowledged (and is being worked on), but the second hasn't as yet.

The three things I've worked out (and posted over there):

1. It only seems to happen with Chrome or Chrome-related browsers

2. It only seems to happen with Invision's hosted customers

3. The timing seems to line up with some major infrastructure changes Invision made 6-12 months ago (they moved to AWS for hosting)

I've submitted my info over at their forums. I wouldn't expect a fix anytime soon as it could be quite complicated, but I guess they'll be onto it at some point.

Ironically the browser I have the least problems with the forum in is Explorer (or whatever Microsoft is calling it these days... Edge?). Safari on my phone also seems fine. The only thing Explorer/Edge won't let me do is quote posts properly but at least I stay logged in I suppose.

Chrome works just fine for me on my PC, it's the mobile version I've developed a problem with. I'm constantly signed out on the mobile version and I have no clue why.

Clear your cache and refresh until it goes away. I can assure you - this process works if you do it.

We see this from time to time, try to refresh a few times and clear cache.

I had a new variant of this problem twice today even after clearing the cache and refreshing (the usual tricks). This time, I typed in my log in info and hit enter. Instead of logging me in or bringing me to the home page, it just refreshed the log in page. Tried again, same thing. Took three or four tries to actually log in.

I got signed out when I peruse the D&N forum. It didn't sign me out when I was in the Jungle before going to D&N. And only happens when I'm on my laptop. Mobile's been fine so far. 

So, moments ago, I got into D&N, it asked me to sign in, I did just that, and I hopped over the GNR Official Social Media thread, clicked the main D&N link, it auto-signed me out. 

This time, I did not relogin, instead I clicked Main page to come here to Support, and what did I see? ..... I'm still logged in! Even though just seconds prior, it logged me out and I DID NOT relogin after that. 

Site's a wacko.:lol:
