I've done some digging on the phpBB forum and quite a few are having this same problem which seems to be a cookie related issue. It seems to be fixed by renaming a cookie. Here's the link....

just to make you all happy, I have re-named the cookie. Bragging rights if you know what it changed from/to.

Of course, this will instantly log you all off.....

Happy Sunday
Have you tried turning it off and back on again?


If it’s broken, it might be my fault, is my responsibility and there is even a slight chance I can fix it 😳

Sorry I thought he meant it would log us off to reboot it then work when we signed back in.

No, I didn’t mean that. I didn’t mention re-booting.

When I changed the cookie name your session can’t be recognised, therefore you have to sign in again.

I changed the cookie name as @stilldave and his research suggested that it might fix the issue. I didn’t think it would for a moment.

If you look back, this was first mentioned almost a year ago. I have spent a lot of time trying to address this, obviously without success.
You have to imagine that had I been able, I would have fixed this by now.
Have you tried turning it off and back on again?

I only have to log in if I open a new tab., which I sometimes do when cutting and pasting to a post.
One click.
Two if you count opening the tab.
Not the end of the world.
