Let me look into this guys. It happens to me too ... but very infrequently.

I have to believe this is simple cookie management. I defer to DiFranco, who has seen a lot more than I have, but that's gotta be the login mechanism at some level. (FWIW, I have never had a problem after the initial stabilization period.)

DiFranco ran a patch this morning that will allegedly fix the problem. Please let me know ...

Is anyone else having this problem? If so, how often, and is there any pattern?

The more I know, the more likely we'll be to correct it. We'll figure it out ...

Alright, now that we installed this patch ... if you clear out your cookies, then log back in ... you should stay logged in.

If not, let me know.

intenso, thanks for the feedback.

I will eventually get my hands around it, and thanks for the patience ... I know it's a pain in the ass.

Long story short, we're using the most updated beta version of these boards, where the troubleshooting on some issues is not 100% functional.

I THINK this is fixed. Let me know everyone.

If its still not keeping you logged in, and you don't erase cookies ... post in here what operating system and browser you use.

What operating system and browser?

Also, please take note of the URL in your browser: is it "swerbsblurbs.com" or "theclevelandfan.com"?

... and, if it's the latter, could you please clear your cookies and see if it's repeatable?

It's important that everyone who has bookmarked the site, to check their bookmarks to ensure that they no longer point to swerbsblurbs.com.

Well, it's theclevelandfan.com.

Until I click "Return to Home" to read an article, then click "Boards" to come back. Then it gets flipped to swerbsblurbs.com.

Which strikes me as really bad link management.

Steve, that's odd, because this specific problem was addressed by the webmaster last week.

Basically there's something about Unix / Apache that is written so that when searching for something, if it ends in a letter (/boards) the server looks for a file named boards, but if it ends in a slash (/boards/) then it knows to look for a directory called boards. When it looks for a file and doesn't find it, it starts going through the root directory and URL, and that's where the server switches to swerbsblurbs.com...

There are other bits involved, but they're technical and I don't really know how they work, so I won't try to explain as I'm likely to get it wrong. Suffice it to say, the best solution is to use a trailing slash, as it means that you won't get into these crazy rewriting rules.

The webmaster has coded the front page link to lead to a directory, now (with the slash), and I wonder if you've got cached versions of the page in your history directory on your own computer that don't have the slash - please clear your cookies and cache and check this behaviour again.
