[4.1] Session Expired

  • My users are seemingly at random receiving fullscreen modal warning "Session Expired, please log in again" upon visiting my forum. However it is not necessary to log in again, the big scary box kan simply be clicked away.


    This error message makes no sense, it happens when the session is only just started and also it is not necessary to log in again. Users are using a single device and receive the error after being offline for +12hrs.

  • These issues are almost always caused by misbehaving plugins sending erroneous requests to the server. The error message itself can be rather misleading as it can also happen if a bad security token is sent to the server, the forum can not distinguish this one properly.
