Perlmonks 'Not logged in Error' - Proposal for fixby tmharish (Friar)
|on Jan 20, 2013 at 09:24 UTC||Need Help??|
Anyone who has used perlmonks for any length of time must have come across a scenario wherein ( when they are logged in ) they suddenly see a page of the website wherein they are not.
I am not talking about perlmonks using different sessions for the domains 'perlmonks.org', 'perlmonks.com' and 'perlmonks.net'
It turns out that perlmonks seems to use different sessions for www.perlmonks.org and perlmonks.org.
I can kind of see the reasoning for different sessions for .org, .com and .net ( although this might not be good from a search engine point of view and considering we at perlmonks want to promote the wisdom on the site, we might want to think about that.)
Although I can not be sure of this as I do not know how the code works, I believe it is possible that this might solve the 'you are not logged in' issue on some of the Other CB clients
IMHO I believe www.perlmonks.org and perlmonks.org ( and similarly for the .net and .com ) should use the same sessions. Since perlmonks uses apache this can be done by changing some settings on the virtual host or ( easier but more load on the server ) adding a .htaccess file.
Maybe one of the gods can give some insight into if this makes sense?
