Support » Plugin: Remember Me Controls » Should re-login after activating?

  • Resolved John


    When I’m logged in and activate this plugin with Remember Forever and/or Remember Me Duration checked, should I logout and re-login in order for having those settings applied or are they already applied for next login if I just close the browser window?

    @dsl225: Hi John,

    Good question (and one I’ll be sure to add to the plugin’s FAQ)! In order for the extended duration for the “Remember Me” to take effect, you would have to log out and then log back in. (More precisely, you have to log back in, which can happen after your current login session expires, you log out, you clear your cookies, or your browser clears its cookies.)

    The login cookie is saved in your browser and contains within in the expiration date (which is what this plugin affects to make longer). It’s easiest and generally best for it to take effect on subsequent logins. However, there definitely should be some clear indication about that, which I’ll rectify in the next release.


    Yep, that makes sense and this how I operated so far but wanted to be sure.
    Many thanks!
