I seem to have to re-login using persona quite frequently.
I wish I didn't have to.
How often is this happening and with which browser?
The cookie should be persistent.
Chrome, on windows and android.
Once a week, maybe as often as daily.
This still doesn't seem to work :-(
Sorry, I've been buried away on some other parts of the system.
If you could provide a bit more information that'd be great:
Are you using Chrome on both Windows and Android? Does it only happen in Chrome?
Does it happen every time you close and re-open your browser?
When you say you need to log in again - does the page say the cookie has expired? Or do you just get a normal page without logged-in status?
The code that sets cookies may fail in certain cases so I can take a closer look.
In the meantime, I'll have a look at the server logs and see if there is anything happening that's specific to your account.
Very often I have to login seconds after logging in if I use the back button. Only Persona thinks I'm still logged in and it's a real dance with the Persona pop-up to freeze it before it closes so I can actually re-click the Sign In button.
TBH Persona sucks. Please, please implement social sign in via Facebook.
If I stay logged in on my phone but then log in and out via my work PC will that cause issues with my Following tab?
What sort of issues? If you're logged out it won't reflect that you've read something, but it won't automatically "mark all as read" if you then login. Or have I misunderstood?
Possibly, but my explination might be a bit off.
I want to keep my phone logged in for a month but on a PC I log out of each session when I'm done. Will Microcosm get that I've read a thread logged in on a PC but then pick up on any new posts if I then look at thread on my phone an hour later (in the the same way that you can run a synched version of Firefox on multiple devices).
Actually, David may have answer this in a LFGSS thread (Subtle Changes #4132). As far as I understand it, caches are dynamic and are read each time so logging in and out of multiple devices should work without affecting whether post are read or not.
We'll update the "read" information and act on it so long as you are signed in.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
