Multiple Login Required

Postby kentuckyfan1001 » June 29th, 2011, 8:05 am

Is there a specific reason that we must log in twice to log on to the wiki and the forums? I've found it a little inconvenient to have to log in to scioly twice.

The wiki and forums are not "tied together," so to speak. The logins are to separate systems - the logins don't "speak" to each other.

Is it technically possible to link the backends? Probably, but I am not sure. Is it worth the effort? Probably not.

They are tied together at the backend, as wiki uses the forum's user database for authentication, but what you're experiencing is that the login sessions are not propagated across from forum to wiki. That is too much work to fix.

An easy solution that the users could do (like me), is just check the automatic login box on both the Wiki and the Forum. It works for me.

Yeah, that's what I do too.
