SOL automatically logs me out

Switch Blayde

When I quit Safari, SOL logs me out. I don't remember this happening in the past. Has it always been like that or is it new or is it something on my end?

Did you have an update for Safari? Check the settings for Safari, maybe it has switched a setting that preserved the login before.

You might have a corrupted cookie, or your browser is deleting the cookie, when you're exit the browser.

When you log in again, there should be a box marked "remember me on this device" or something like that. That box appears to be unclicked.
The alternative would be that you - or Safari - have done something sub-optimal with cookies.

That was it.

I didn't change anything in the log in/staying logged in mechanism. Whatever changed is on your end.

Check your cookie settings. If you have something like 'Cookie 5' which helps you manage cookies for Safari, then it may be deleting SOL's cookies.

However, that being said, in the last year I started moving the site to a technology called 'sessions' and sometime the site asks you to log in when you come back, but only happens when you've been away for more than 24 hours.

That was probably what triggered it. I was in Italy for a couple of weeks without access to SOL. When I got back I had to log in (I never log out). I forgot to check the "keep me logged in." It's fixed now.

As usual, it was on my end. :)
Thx.

While I have not been in Italy any time recently, there is a solution to not being able to get SOL in hotel WLAN networks. It just costs money.

There are two non-free SOL options which can be ordered independently of each other: Premier membership and Secure Access. Secure Access uses https and another domain name, that other name is effective. Users are asked not to publicise the other name which makes it rather irritating when you see links in forum entries doing exactly that.

Maybe the link-changing script Laz employs should also check for that domain name and automatically change it.

It does. I implemented that about a year ago.
