Wordpress login time outs?

Seems like wordpress is timing out your login when SMF isn't.  This appears like you are still logged into the forums, but not anywhere else and have to log out and in again.  Angry

Re: Changing passwords breaks Wordpress/SMF integration

Logout, Log back in. Did you change your password - if not, it's not related to this. If you did, then it is.

That smells like Wordpress login time outs?

Re: Wordpress login time outs?

Current theory is that SMF updates the login time out each time you use it, but wordpress doesn't.  This means that eventually wordpress logs you out, but SMF doesn't, which causes all sorts of havoc.

Re: Wordpress login time outs?

If the URL begins http://community.plus.net/forum you are in SMF, anything else is Wordpress (I think).

Re: Wordpress login time outs?

I am struggling to reproduce this, all my testing is not showing the cookie dates for SMF changing versus the wordpress ones.

Re: Wordpress login time outs?

If this was a problem I suspect we would have heard of it again in the last few days with all the new users.
