Have not heard anything.
Maybe someone should point out this thread to them as it seems to be a big issue?


I seem to be ok on my forum.. everyone can log in and post apart from a couple of members where they can't log in and be remebered for some reason.

Strange one.

I have more then 'few' users experiencing this trouble. And yes, it affects both old users and newly registered users.

I have a freshly installed PHPBB3 and I'm also having the log in problems after trying loads of different setting I still can't get users to stay logged in when they return to the forum.
I managed to sort some of the constant logging out whilst posting by leaving the cookie domain blank and cookie path as just /

The problem is infurating :( I hope sure fix is on the way for us all

We have still the same problem!

Some of the user can not login automaticly and some try to log in but every time they come back to the log in page.

Thanks in advance

I have nearly all my members complaining about login issues. No matter what cookie settings etc you try it still happens.
I hope it gets sorted soon..

I am having a similar problem, though with mine once someone logs in it just immediately goes to 'Can't Find Server.' I've tried some of the suggestions (dumping the session and session_keys), but that did not work. I hope this gets fixed soon because it's driving me crazy.

Hi!

It seems like we have to split into two problems:

1) Some user have a problem that the automatically login dosn't work.
2) Some user have the problem that they can't login

For issue number one it seems like that I have found a solution.
You can go to the board with the URL http://www.ph-diskus.de/Diskussionsforum/ and http://www.diskusforum.com

The cookie (Domain) setting is: .ph-diskus.de

The second URL was a forwarding to the first URL.

In the settings of the Domain (you have to look to settings on yours provider page) was marked "Frame-Forwarding". I changed this item to "HTTP-Forwarding". If you enter now our Forum with http://www.diskusforum.com you don't see this URL in the adress line. Now you see http://www.ph-diskus.de/Diskussionsforum/

It looks like so that the problem of the automatically login is solved.

But for the second issue (general login problems) I havn't a feedback at the moment.

Regards

Patriz

Thanks for the hints. Mine has always been an HTTP redirect. Neither HTTP or FRAME redirection have any effect for me. It's both exasperating and disappointing that this has carried through to the 'stable' release.

I have _at very least_ 10 users affected by this bug ( And they are constantly bugging me like that: "why did we have to migrate to forums that we can't even login?"

So, could we pleasepleaseplease have some help from support team with this issue?

Same with me.
So not a solution for me either.

This has helped pretty much most of my users, although not quite all.

I've set the Cookie Domain to be blank and asked users to delete any cookies relating to my domain. Many users who kept being sent back to the board as a guest are now logged in and posting.

It's not perfect but it's the best it will get.

Give it a try.

I agree. What I find particularly frustrating is that my installation of "unstable releases" worked fine!
