The statement regarding the expiration of cookies is certainly true on my MacPro running OS X (10.5.6) and Safari (3.2.1).
However...This morning I decided to go to the Lightroom forum from my iPhone. Guess what? I was STILL logged in as Bob Peters. I rebooted the iPHone and I was still logged in. I then powered down and booted the iPhone and...I was STILL logged in as Bob Peters.
So, I booted my laptop and went to the Lightroo, forum. You guessed it, I was STILL logged in when using the laptop.
I then went to my wife's iMac and found that I'm still logged on on that machine!
What the heck is going on? I'm starting to get the feeling that the Web Wizards have corrupted the cookies. Is that possible?
Bob, we probably don't need yet another topic on this, but, ya, I've only had to log in once lately, on three different machines. I assume that there ares more then just cookies involved. I know that both Windows and Firefox offer to help remember my login info, so I'm guessing that they both have a hand in keeping me logged in regardless of cookies. I imagine that different configurations have similar options.
Just as long they get the cookies Matter straightened out. And not go the method used in the Macromedia system that they tried to foist on use two different times I'll be happy. If they do I and 100,00+ other people will descend upon their office with billy Clubs and beat the designer to a Pulp ;-)
pjones, you keep talking about foisting the Macromedia System on the forums. That has never happened. I don't know where you are getting that from. The only big forum change was in October 2007 and that time we moved all the data from the Macromedia Forums into THESE forums. And it failed.
No. your not wasted effort you admitted (collectively) that you tried to design the Webx Forum System to look like The Macromedia side.
Whether it was a port of this system to look like the Macromedia System, or a direct port over to the Macromedia system. That what people didn't like if they could even get in. That was the system I was referring to.
That was when we had the cookie problem.
Question: some one that smart than I (I am sure everyone else on this Forum is) explain why the cookie system has to be touched in the first place?
when you go to a new window style That shouldn't affect cookies to be gin with.
pj, they want everyone to see the screen about linking your two IDs, but not see it any more once they have linked. That's why everyone had to log in for a time, so they would see that screen - which only appears to the non-logged-in. Only it didn't quite work as planned.
