"Already logged in" button

  1. Inactive

    Sometimes when you have several WP dashboard tabs opened you need to go away for some time. When you back you see a popup window with login form. Now you need to enter your login data in each window or reload it (easier if you have saved then in a browser and don't need to enter). There can be a button or link like "already logged in" which you will click and window will disappear.

  2. Actually if you log in once and hit refresh on the others, it will log you in for all.

    But how long is 'some time'? I go away for weeks and it's fine.

    Few hours (or even less) is enough for it to log out.

    I know you can refresh after first login.

    I posted this because this situation is happening to me quite often, so if there are a lot other people who experiencing the same thing, it may be a good idea.

  4. It sounds like you actually have a problem with how your cookies are being saved. Do you have any security plugins running?

    Normally WP leaves you alone for 7 days.

  6. Even when mine goes to sleep, or I shut down, it remembers I'm logged in. That's how cookies are supposed to work :)

    I know what cookies is, I'm a web developer :) Other sites works fine, I did not change any browser settings. Maybe that is because other user activity under same admin account, or activity in other browser or something else. Anyway, its just a small thing.

  8. I try not to assume I know what other people know :D

    I have two computers plus an iPad I use regularly on my site, all are currently logged in right now and just fine. It's most deff a weird issue on your setup.

    The normal debugging is, as I suspect you know, target plugins that mess with cookies (security etc). See if other domains on the same server have the same problem. See if other browsers have the same problem.
