Re: 3 way Session Authentication
Can't you turn them off from Admin Center -> Security Settings -> turn off Session ID checking?  Wink

Oh  Embarrassed

Of course I have days when I look here and wonder where my extra buttons went and then realize that the revalidate session tab is up.

I don't either. I wonder if that's because I sign in using the "Keeps" option? Huh

 
Morning, noon, or night, have a great one! ...

People who are on the move run into it. I get it if I log in here from my iPhone or iPad when out and about then go back to my desktop - different IP addresses.

Login from different IP addy's triggers it on my PC. A small inconvenience but a pain in the butt  Grin

Re: 3 way Session Authentication
Maybe - for the future - we need to look at being able to detect if the site is being accessed through a mobile device and have the sessions check turn off in that situation. Of course, it would still trigger when you got back to your regular computer.

I have wireless internet here and every time I turn the PC on I get a different IP so it is there just about every time I come to the forum.

Re: 3 way Session Authentication
@Dandello -

Perhaps moving that control to a login option (plus the existing Admin Control + 'user-optional') - that way its the user that controls his/her own security (and the Admin can still insist on it).

Just a thought.

Re: 3 way Session Authentication
Maybe allow the admin to choose which groups (like admin and gmod only)  go through the session checks. In theory it should be there to protect the Admin Center and moderator functions. But if the admin doesn't mind the Moderator functions being 'open'...  Undecided

Edited:
We all know that if the user has a choice, they'll opt to not have the check as it's annoying.  Roll Eyes

Re: 3 way Session Authentication
Also, the secondary question for sessions doesn't work properly here. Once that happens people can set their sessions answer to something really simple like 'Ralph'.
