Support » Plugin: WordPress Persistent Login » Persistent Cookie not Working

  • Hello! We love the potential of your plugin. Unfortunately, we can not get it to work! Here is our site: https://gogalora.com

    We have activated your plugin, but the site does not retain the login state when a user exits/quits the browser.

    Can you help us trouble shoot?

    Thanks!
    Chris

    Hi Chris,

    Thanks for getting in touch and apologies the plugin isn’t working for you!

    Could I ask you to try a couple of things?

    1. Can you look at the cookies you have after logging in. You should see a ‘wordpress_loggeded_in_[hash]’ cookie. Does it expire 1 year from now?

    2. Can you test disabling all other plugins and checking if you’re kept logged in. If it works, please reactivate one plugin at a time and test if you’re logged in.

    This should help identify the issue.

    Thanks,
    Luke

    Hi Luke! Thanks for getting back to us! Can you let us know how to check for the cookie? Do you mean in Chrome browser settings / privacy? Then see all cookies? Thanks!

    Hi Luke, I was able to figure out how to check the cookies:

    1/The cookie expiration says ‘session’ not a date like the other cookies. Here is a photo: https://imgur.com/a/KNhohDn

    2/ For cacheing plugins I have wp-rocket and perfmatters. I turned both those off and tested and saw the same ‘session’ for max time for that cookie.

    Any thoughts on what to do next?

    Thank you so much!

    Hi Chris,

    Thanks for looking at that, sorry I didn’t get back to you sooner about checking cookies.

    Are those the only two plugins you have installed on your website? It’s unlikely to be a conflict with a caching plugin. If you have any other plugins, could you try disabling all of them and testing the login process please?

    Hi Luke!

    I just cloned my site and turned off all plugins except for those required to run the theme – elementor, elementor pro, woocommerce.

    I tried logging in on both incognito browser and on regular browser. Both times they still said ‘session’.

    I’m on cloudways hosting – using Vultr – with regular VPS with Nginx, Apache, PHP, MySQL. Not sure if there are some server side settings I should try?

    Do you have any more ideas to trouble shoot? Really would love to get your plugin working for us! It will be a dream if we can!

    Thanks!
    Chris

    Hi Luke! We got it to work! We found a rougue snippet of code on our child theme that was conflicting.

    So now, it works for our email / pw users, but doesn’t work for our FB login users. We use a theme called http://www.mylistingtheme.com and they offer social login via fb.

    Would we be able to use your plugin pro version to work with our site?

    Thanks!

    Great stuff!

    I’ll take a look at the theme for you, hopefully they have some documentation that will help support their FB login!

    The premium version of the plugin does support the social login plugins for WooCommerce and Ultimate Member. But it’s unlikely to work out the box with your theme.

    Hi Luke! Just checking in. Do you know if your premium version will work with NextEnd Social Login? https://wordpress.org/plugins/nextend-facebook-connect/

    We’re trying to get persistent login to work for FB users and not sure if we want to buy Woocommerce social login.

    Thanks!

    Hi Chris,

    Apologies for the delay, I’ve had some Premium customers asking for support through the plugin and have been prioritising those.

    I’ll run a test with Nextend to see if it works, typically we have to set a filter the force the remember me, unless there’s a setting in the plugin (or even a setting in your theme’s social login settings) to remember social login users?

    Hi Luke! We purchased the premium version, can you please let us know if it works with Nextend or how we can resolve to make sure FB users stay logged in our app? We are getting dinged pretty hard in our reviews of our app because people can’t stay logged in via FB.

    Just to review, our theme is mylistingtheme.com – for some reason their social login solution does not keep people logged in (even with your plugin). Works fine for email, just not FB.

    We are using NextEnd for apple login and could maybe switch our social login to FB. Does your plugin work with Nextend?

    If not, what works with your plugin for persistent login via fb? If we switch our social login to woocommerce – will it affect all our current FB users? i.e. would they have to login again?
