I can now confirm that Derek's fix works.

Thanks for the confirmation. Glad to hear it.  Smiley

I wasn't able to confirm this myself, but as I previously mentioned, Derek is so good with his fixes that I just presumed that this one would also work. So I had kept his edits as he showed us.

Thanks to Derek, and good for me.  Wink

Methinks this was either a mod that people liked or something somebody saw on other software and liked. I've seen similar options in blog software and similar security questions for identification confirmation for resetting passwords and such in other places.

I had already tried doing what JonB outlined, and I didn't see any Update Session options, which is why I asked.

Maybe this doesn't apply in V2.4 like it does with the newest version (although I'm pretty sure it does).

Edited:
Yep! It does apply.  Roll Eyes

After all, I seem to recall a time or two when I previously got hit with an Update Session requirement when I was logged on with my admin account, so it's more likely that I'm simply unable to invoke it at this time.

In any case, Derek's fixes have always worked for me before, so I think I can safely presume that this latest fix of his did what it was supposed to do, and all is well.

No biggie.

On the note of changing the way a session is updated, I'm curious to know why anyone would want to use anything but a password since an alternate way to re-authenticate doesn't apply to a profile session.

Making such a choice would require two different ways to re-authenticate a session depending on what session was opened at the time.

I don't know; just seems a  bit complicated.  Roll Eyes

When you've logged as admin from a different IP then gone back to the first IP (like you've logged in from two computers in two places.) I can trigger it by staying logged in as admin on my on-line test site from my desktop, then logging into the testsite as Admin on my iPad from Starbuck's, then going back to my desktop.

That's why this one doesn't show up all that often - unless you habitually log in as admin from different places, you won't see it. BUT, when you do trigger it, you also get a nice little 'Update Session' button instead of an 'Admin' button in the button array.  Wink

And Derek beat me to it... Grin

Oh yeah! That's when I had this happen; exactly like that, except I wasn't in Starbucks at the time; just in another part of the house.

Edited to correct a typo; yet again.  Shocked

So where else would Update Session invoke with an admin account?

JonB wrote on May 14th, 2012 at 10:22am:
The Update Session only applies to two classes - Admins and Global Moderators.  AFAIK.

The easiest way to trigger it is to remain logged in on one IP, and start a new session from a different IP.  When you go back to the first session, you will likely find an 'Update Session' has replaced the Admin Button.  I believe another way to trigger it is to use and Administrative function on one of the boards - that starts a countdown timer.

When i did my testing, I used the sign-in from a different station method to trigger it.

If you mean it doesn't work for the profile timeout, then it won't. That isn't broken to need fixing - they're two separate things.

Update: Even after applying Derek's fix, the only re-authentication that works is using my password.

But that's cool. I really only want to use my password anyway.  Wink

I still get amazed at how you figure this stuff out; and in your sleep, too!

Dandello seems to be able to do the same thing, and JonB as well.

Happily enough, just following what all of you do makes me just a little bit smarter when it comes to this stuff, so thank you all!  Smiley

I wonder what I'll get to learn next?  Wink Cool

Actually, my subconscious did. I read this thread before I went to bed last night and had a dream that it was something to do with the scramble - I tested it when I got up, and indeed it was. Smiley

Darn cold - Derek beat me to it.  Wink - But another bug bites the dust!

And yes Bill, we know that Sessions.pl is triggered by staying too long in the profile section - but the 'password only' part was working!
