Constantly being redirected to login page

 1:58 pm on Feb 7, 2010 (gmt 0)

If I open more than 3 or 4 pages in quick succession I'm getting redirected to the login page - but logging in doesnt work.

It looks as if its some sort of bot trap with a time out of around 15 mins. renewing my dsl ip defats it.

I'm on a slow dsl connection and my usual method is to scan a forum for interesting topics and open 3 or 4 in new tabs, then read 1 while the others load.

but I'm constantly getting chucked out, this has been going on for a month or so and its getting really really boring now.

I understand you may have a huge prob with bots but I pay a sub and I'm logged in - so why cant I view more than 4 pages at a time?

Please fix it.

Thanks for your reporting of this issue. It is noted and will be looked into.

It is noted and will be looked into.

can I please ask when exactly that might be...?

nearly another week and I'm still being chucked off with the bots.

am I the only one thats seeing this? does nobody else open ww in a few tabs?

imho its now really really really boring

I pm'ed brett about it on the 7th Jan, its enough already now - please fix it

Can you try another browser and see if the problem still exists, please.

just sparked up opera so if I dont post within 5 minutes its still happening (hint I'm sure I wont be back for 15 at least but anyway...)

opened 6 pages in tabs using opera and got blocked again

I've renewed the router ip and got straight back in no prob

currently 89.**1.*7.*4

I'll get another block for you...

You have the same setting as everyone else on WebmasterWorld. THere is nothing specific about your account here.

What is happening, is somewhere in the loop, you are getting a cached page instead of a live page. Either your isp is caching a page it shouldn't, or your browser is caching a page it shouldn't.

It appears Opera is working for you. Which browser is the problem child?

I didnt think there was anything specific about my account. (I know that just cos I'm paranoid doesnt mean you're not out to get me - but even so...!)

All browsers are the problem children - Maybe you mis-read my post about Opera but it didnt work any better yesterday than it does today - open 5 or 6 pages in quick succession and get blocked.

Firefox does it
Opera does it
IE 5.0
IE 5.5
IE 6.0
IE 7 and 8 all do it
os's inc. fedora kubuntu xp and vista

And its nothing to do with my ISP or cached pages: I got blocked just now using lynx off a server... check your logs - how many visitors you had today using lynx! That was me. And honestly Brett my keyboard skills are so cr*p - that if I can open pages quick enough in Lynx it must be a problem.

Renewing my dsl IP add. at home/office clears it instantly.

IMHO... Its your bot trap is what it is.

Its easy to reproduce:
Open 5 or 6 pages in quick succession and you'll get redirected to the login page for (approx) 15 minutes. Thats for all forums - not just supporters.
Get a fresh IP and you're back in.

I cant see loads of posts complaining so I cant assume anyone else is seeing it. But its a real pain as far as I'm concerned.

Just opened about 30 different pages at the same time in quick succession in FF and cannot reproduce this behavior.

Yes, that is the default behavior for everyone. That is our implementation of "576 first clicks free per day" program ;-)

Ya, then after you login, you can view all the pages you want.

What is happening, is that you are caching that login page.

After login - go view another page. Or try putting a question mark after the same url.

my daytoday browser/os is firefox (currently 3.5.6) on fedora.

its not a cache issue - its turned off
and its not an isp issue... because...
in fact all is good using opera, and ff & ie on win. Because loging in does not stop the prob. with ff/fedora, I had assumed (mybad) that loging in wouldnt make any diff with other browsers/os's. which of course it does.

But ff/fedora still wont get past the login page after a few page views. any page with or without query params just redirects to the login. and loging in doesnt make any diff at all. tried a clean profile, default no addons. same

oh well...
I'll just use opera for ww.
