Hi Martin, I see at https://www.os2world.com/forum/index.php?action=unread
Edit: the new gif does not produce excessive CPU.

Hi Martin, the high CPU usage seems to be fixed, thanks.

Issues List
  • The articles images still looks weird. All look floating on the text, and even if I set them as "inline", center or left, it shows always floating. It seems to be a problem with the visual template. I will have to keep looking how to fix that. (or maybe change the template)
  • I still have to set up some antispam and/or captcha for user registration. I had turned off site registration for the moment.
  • I need to set the RSS feeds again.
  • Main Site (Joomla) is not remembering logged users
  • MediaWiki Bridge is not working with the main site (Joomla)


Just some update on the site.

- I think that now the "Remember Me" for logon is working on the main page. (It was some PHP setting)
- Also, I had re-enable the site registration with a recaptcha that woks only on Firefox 45.9
- I also organized the search results of the main site by date (newer first). I prefer it that way, but let me know if someone complains.

Regards

Main Site (Joomla) is not remembering logged users
On the page https://www.os2world.com/cms/ I have to login every time I start a new browser session.

Cookies are allowed for os2world.com. I have multiple cookies stored under www.os2world.com, even some that look related. But I don't know which one is the correct one.

In contrast, the SMF pages store the login data even across browser restarts, as it was before the upgrades with the old main page.

Hi Andreas

I'm not experiencing your issue with ArcaOS andFirefox 45.9 anymore. Andreas, maybe you can try deleting the cookies or making a temporal profile for Firefox and see if something changes.

Can someone confirm if the "remember me" feature on the main page is working? It is working fine for me on Firefox 45.9 (also on 38.8), closing the navigator and reopening is saving my logon.

Mine seems to have been lost after shutting down and restarting the browser. SeaMonkey 2.42.9

Hi Martin

I see the same as Dave and Andreas - if I have closed the browser since last login I need to login again.

Interestingly I have not logged in on the main page but did not need to login to post this so login seems to persist for forums.


Regards

Pete

This evening, I will try what happens if I delete both joomla_remember_me_* cookies. That might be the correct ones. There are several others by os2world.com and www.os2world.com that I could try to delete after that.

It behaves the same on two different systems with two different Mozilla apps and versions, of that one is the recent Firefox for W$. Here I run SeaMonkey 2.35 (Firefox 38).

It doesn't work for me. Even after I've deleted all os2world cookies, the browser keeps me logged in on the main site https://www.os2world.com/cms/ only until I close all browser windows.

On opening the main site, the first cookie in the screenshot is created. It's a session cookie, that's deleted after a browser session.

The second joomla_remember_me_* cookie is added after I log in. It expires after a month. I guess that's the one that doesn't do what it should.

The third and fourth cookies are created after I've opened this thread. These are SMF pages. The PHPSESSID cookie expires at the end of the session and the SMFCookie* is the one that successfully keeps me logged in on the SMF pages until 2026.

Hi

Today I tried Seamonkey (Build identifier: 20190601192153), fresh and recently installed. Logged in to the main site (os2world.com/cms) with "Remember me" selected. Closed Seamonkey, restarted it and I was logged. I also rebooted and tried it again and I was logged.

Since there are three reports against one (mine), I think that there most be something that recognizes me or my network to keep me logged.

joomla_remember_me should be the cookie that works. I also have the same ones that Andreas shows on his post's attachment.

Hi Martin

I deleted all os2world cookies, made sure Seamonkey 2.42.9 was set to "Allow Cookies from This Website" and closed Seamonkey followed by a reboot.

Having rebooted I started Seamonkey and logged in to .os2world. I had a read about the latest AOO release then left os2world for ebay - looking for a new cpu water cooling kit to replace my just died Antec kuhler 650. Decided to try the Cooler Master MasterLiquid Lite 120 kit.

I then visited os2world again and had to login again - I had not even closed the browser.

The main page no longer notices that I have already read the Latest Forum Posts - in fact, I can read a post then refresh the main page and that post still shows as New.

Both the above seem to be the result of deleting cookies previously although I could be wrong. Prior to deleting cookies I was always logged in to the forums and the main page login worked until the browser was closed.


Later edit: Latest Forum Posts "New" indicator seems to be working now.
Regards

Pete

After some days, the logged-in status won't survive a site leave. Now I have the same experience as Pete that I have to log in again, even when I haven't restarted the browser. BTW: That was  also the case before I have deleted all os2world cookies.

Hi All

Just looking at cookies I see that I have only 4 os2world cookies but know that I deleted 6 or 7 previously (see my previous post).

How many os2world cookies should I have?


Regards

Pete
