LGF Login Notes 2
More notes on the LGF Blog Engine’s new login process:
1) I know I said this already, but it doesn’t hurt to repeat that you must have cookies enabled in your browser to successfully log in. This is because the login process needs to maintain your “logged in” status as you move from page to page, and this is only possible through the use of session cookies. (At least, only possible in a reasonably secure way through session cookies.)
2) After wrestling with the timeout settings in the (rather poorly documented) PEAR session management module I’m using, I finally wrote a little test script to debug it, and that quickly revealed the problem. The six-hour session timeout will now work correctly, instead of timing out at around an hour. (Arg. I may have spoken too soon. Still seems to be timing out too soon.)
3) The Lizard Lounge hasn’t been integrated into the login system yet; you’ll need to log in separately to get in there.
