Login Failure using "Remember Me" box with IE

Postby rdbartz » Thu Aug 23, 2012 12:37 am

I searched for a solution but cannot seem to get this one. Several references have mentioned it but none with a definitive solution. I hope I did my research right so that I am not guilty of posting another problem that is already solved.

OJS version 2.3.7 on a windows server with PHP 5.2.17

PROBLEM: IE Users who chect the "Remember Me" box are retuned to the login screen.

ONLY AFFECTS IE users (of course that turned out to be most of the users so far...!). If the "Remember Me" box is NOT checked, IE logs in normally, Logging in with Firefox and Chrome works perfectly no matter what. It does not matter if you use the right column login or the main one from the login page after an attempt.

Tried so far: Set session_check_ip = Off
Tried Internet Explorer in compatibility mode.
Tried it in Firefox and Chrome with and without the "Remember Me" box checked on same computer, works fine.

It looks as though the login actually is logged as successful in the database.... but it always goes back to the login page on IE if the "Remember Me" box is checked.

Suspect cookies not being set right in IE but cannot even find the OJSSID cookie someone mentioned in my Windows 7 32 bit install.

For some reason almost every one of the few users so far check that box even though they are advised not to for now. Complaining...

Anyone have any ideas here?
