Support » Plugin: Advanced Concurrent Login Limit » lock out from website due to not doing a proper logout

  • Hi Abdullah,

    I have been trying to use your plugin but it seems that its having some issues.
    the plugin does not recognize a non official logout i.e. when a user close the computer the plugin think the user is still logged in. this couse me a lot of problem where I have to rename the plugin folder to stop it from running and than re activate it.
    I have one admin that some time login and just turn of the computer instead of login out. when he try to login again he run into the login limitation.

    can you fix this?
    you might want to take a look at the “Idle User Logout” plugin (https://en-ca.wordpress.org/plugins/idle-user-logout/) that do auto logout for idle users not based on their computer idle time.

    Please advise,
    Thanks,

    David

    Hi davidzohar,
    This Plugin logs out previously lgged in user when a new user after a certain time tries to login.
    I think your need is little different.
    Please contact us here: upscalethoughtsoln@gmail.com for any custom development.

    Thanks

    Thanks Abdullah,
    I dont understand your answer. it doesn’t make sense.
    my need is simple. prevent users from login after setting a max number of concurrent logins for the same user.
    so if I set the number to max 2 concurrent logins a 3rd login will be denied and that works.
    the problem is if the initial users that logged in didn’t logout and left their session the plugin doesn’t recognize it and think they still logged in so if they go to another machine and try to login again they are locked out.
    I have this scenario in a class where we are limiting the number of students login during class. when they are finish if they dont logout properly the other class in another room cannot login to the site…

    BTW I sent you the previews post to your email but never heard back from hence the message here.

    Please advise,
    Thanks,

    David

    Hi,
    are you David Zohar? ok i will email you.

    Thanks

    I agree, this issue is a big deal that caused me to try another plugin.

    Perhaps one solution would be to destroy the old sessions instead of preventing the new one? That’s the way many other websites do it like Spotify, for example.
