Am I the only one having issues with the forums remembering that I was logged in?
It seems to disconnect me once every day, since the forum came back up.

No, you are not the only one. I was logged out 20+ times yesterday, and 4 times already this morning. Although one of those times this morning was intentional to implement a minor fix.
It does not affect everyone, and we are looking for the cause. I am using Firefox on Win10.

Thanks. I'm also using the latest Firefox, on Linux.

Just found this thread and have some issues I’m experiencing.

For starters I had the session logout issue as mentioned above. I was logged in yesterday just fine and did not logout. Using iOS 16.4 with safari.

When I attempted to log back in I got an error twice while using the built in iOS password manager. I confirmed the password was correct in the password manager. When copy and pasting the password from the password manager it logged me in just fine.

Further issue I don’t see reported have to to with the formatting of the post tools. They are not displayed correctly on my phone. Please see screenshot as it will be self explanatory what the issue is.

Now this is on an iPhone 12mini and it did not look like this on the old forum.

We've had to reset the login status again in the meantime due to an unforeseen bug in the original forum software.
So we're still busy smoothing out the server and websites bumps using new software versions/upgrades.

this is likely caused because they are being set with expiration as session instead of a date

recommend to set the cookies with an expiration date 2 weeks from login date

Being logged out or in shouldn't affect a like given to a post per user.
More than one like by any user to the same post shouldn't happen IMO.

The login cookie should only be a session cookie if you have NOT ticked the "remember me" checkbox during login. But that is not the cause for the random logouts during an active session. MyBB security guidelines suggest to send a special HTTP header to browsers to clear all website data (cookies etc) after a security issue, and this header seems to be sent not just once for some users. The respective cookie that checks if the header was sent has a lifetime of one year, so it should not kick in again

Why do you need more? Passwords are salted, hashed (with a state of the art alog and not just MyBBs default md5) and encrypted - I think it should be secure enough now Smile
And given that a complex 17 char password already takes 48bn years to decrypt, I think we are good with 30. But if you have a good argument to go even higher, please explain. Thanks.

"need" is a strong word, just a request however your use of the qualifier "enough" in saying secure enough should be an indicator

reason for request, however

when needing to change it in light of recent news, i was going to match the rand(50) used for the login cookie but i was met with a limitation of 30 so i requested an increase

if it's an arbitrary number somewhere i feel it's more than reasonable but if it requires code changes it may not be

Hello,

Instant email notifications for my suscribed threads do not work (I don't receive emails).
Is it a consequence of the forum relaunch ?

Could it be that the "Views" count for a thread is not updated properly since the forum relaunch? Yesterday, I started a thread with @Karellen in the scrapers section (https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=372960) and it had at least a few clicks from ...well... both of us. Still, the "Views" count at this moment (almost 24h later) shows "0" (https://forum.kodi.tv/forumdisplay.php?fid=305).
