I was trying to make a few contributions to the DreamHost Wiki this evening, and am having a terrible time staying logged in.
It seemed that every time I logged in, all was well for a few minutes, but every time I visited a “special page”, and then went pack to a “regular” page, I found myself no longer “logged in”, with only my IP address displayed at the top of the page instead of my user name.
Does the DH Wiki Start/Stop sessions depending upon where the user is or what he/she is doing in the wiki? The only reason I ask is that it seems (I have not completely tested it yet) that the problem goes away if I check the “Remember my password across sessions” box.
I’m used to having a session last as long as the browser is open and there is activity (though I have seen “timout” termination of sessions on other sites - just not went actively surfing around the site)
Am what I am seeing just “mornal” for the DH Wiki, and/or is there something I’m missing here?
