Session problems on the Wiki
« on: November 29, 2019, 06:20:25 AM »
It seems that after a recent Wiki software update I have a hard time staying logged in. After logging in and going to make an edit, the Wiki will log me out when I go to press submit. After several attempts I might get an edit to go through. It is happening on Chrome and Firefox on a desktop, as well as Chrome on an Android phone.

Yeah, something seems to be going horribly wrong with the session caching, though I'm not yet sure what. I don't think we've ever had a MediaWiki upgrade that hasn't gone awry, perhaps we should consider switching to another CMS.

I've just tried fiddling with the caching options, and the error hasn't reoccurred over 10 minutes of testing, though that proves nothing since the issue was intermittent beforehand. If it's still happening, please let me know.

We'll keep investigating and looking for a proper fix.

I gave it another try. On a desktop Chrome browser I logged in, navigated to a page, performed an edit, and it logged me out when I hit "submit".

Edit: I was ale to get a few edits to go through, but it is constantly logging out and is in a, in my opinion, unusable state for editors.

The only instance in which I can see myself getting logged out frequently is if I choose not to select the "keep me logged in" checkbox. Is this what you're experiencing?

When I checkmark the stay logged in option it seems to keep me logged in, but when I try to edit it gives me this error:

This should hopefully be better now. Please post here if you still notice problems.
