ezBoard puking on you? [randomly getting logged out]

Unread postby pd Rydia » Wed Oct 06, 2004 6:03 am

official topic

some quotes from the linked thread for the incredibly lazy:
<ul><small><font color="#DD0000">symptoms

* you try and open a thread, respond to a post, make a new topic, mark forum read or use the back button and you find yourself logged out.
* you get ezboard page not found errors (in private invisible forums)
* you cannot remain logged in on your board
* or anything similar.

The ezdevlopement team are working on this problem at the moment. In the interim, please do one of two things for me.

1. delete all ezboard cookies. That includes any that begin with a server prefix such as p079 or p212 etc. Ensure that ezboard.com is on the allowed list if that is necessary.

2. Change browser from IE to mozilla, firefox, or any other. (Let us know how you go with that.)

3. if you are an admin and you don't mind your board being public, try switching off MBA (put password to register on if you are worried about security) and seeing if that helps as a temporary measure.

Additionally, can you inform us as to whether you've recently upgraded Windows with a recent service pack, and what system (98, XP, etc) you are using.

</font></small></ul>This problem has occurred to at least KoD, Neverah, Archmage, and Priam. Molokidan told me about it only when someone else mentioned it in chat. KoD fixed it by switching to Firefox, Nev by logging into my account and back to his (??), AM I think by clearing out his cookies and resetting. Anyhow, yeah. That's the deal.

And if you don't read the Discussion forum, sucks to be you. :{


Also, thanks to Priam for, uh, inadvertently reminding me that I forgot to post this thread. And for future reference, if ezB is being stupid on you, the ezB help and bug base forums are linked from the ezRing at the bottom of the forums (drop down menu). Problems go to the bug base forums. If you just have a general question, help forums. Be sure to search the forums thoroughly to see if the question has been addressed before. <p>

I actually had this problem myself a couple times today. In fact, I had it just now while replying to this thread! Wacky.

The problem also exists in Mozilla.... Because I got logged off when using it.... <p>

Hmmm... A deviantart account, and nothing inside :(</p>

Happens to me on rare occasions, but never more than once a week... I can live with it, quite frankly, although thanks for the info. <p>

wkz: They don't claim that it doesn't exist in Mozilla or Firefox. They just suggest switching to that browser, as it helps some users.

Also, getting logged of *once* isn't necessarily *this* problem. EZB has always logged you off once or twice for no apparent reason, every few months. <p>

I have been logged off using Firefox, IE, and Mozilla. I attribute this to the fact that God and/or a band of hackers hate(s) me. <p>
