Hipi, as an FYI, I did do the “keep me logged in” thing and I can get on the site w/o any issue, I can view everything unless someone attaches a photo that I try to open and then it asks me to log-in again and after doing so most times will still not open the attachment and send me back to the log-in yet again with no success no matter how many times I log-in.
Now I did reboot my iPad and it now allows me to open the attachments w/o asking me to log-in again, only on this site, never on any other sites I frequent.
This has been a problem here for a number of us for Some reason, with no solution.
Yes, the problem is the forum software was written and debugged using a promiscuous browser so the writer took liberties not knowing.
Just for fun go find a post with two picture attachments. I find I can always view the 2nd but never the first.
Have had similar problem somewhere with inline images. That forum somehow morphed the URL that Safari would not accept if the link contained the tilde ~ which is used to denote a user account. One could hack the message by starting a Reply which displayed the URL raw, copy, paste into new browser window, and all was fine. Just couldn't do it directly.
I will say this for Apple. I switched because I was tired of m Windows based PCs slowing down and just in general having all sorts of bugs. I put up with it for years. I went all in on Apple with iPhones, iPads and MacBook Air. I almost never have issues now. I'm pretty sure this one is because my iPad is about eight years old, or more, and I can no longer get updates on it.
You would HOPE they develop to standards but I actually ran into compatibility issues and had to contact developer support. I was told. flat out, that "whatever we make is automatically a standard."
That could be. Years ago Apple (Apple ][ to Mac) decided that, the best way to keep their platform optimized and performing better, it would occasionally cut loose old hardware and software to move forward. As such, they are more likely to deprecate stuff than M$ does. As such, you get the trade off of tighter integration and less ancient code in exchange for software/hardware support sometimes being cut loose (but no forum issues yet).
I have an iPad Mini that is getting older too. Had to look to see it's build year: Late 2015. Still working fine but just starting to notice a little degradation in response times that I attribute to updates in iOS and software that expects more modern horsepower.
talking about the standards depends what company you are talking about because you have open standards like IEEE and then you have closed standards like apple specific protocols and for exaple EIGRP from cisco. so ofc apple will say everything is build to standards bc they set them themselves
I'll have to take back my comment... was looking at a thread with multi-pics and got the "not logged in" message. Running W10, Firefox, with ad blocker and cookie killer (you can set to not block any site)... but don't generally have a problem. It is likely a bug in the forum software that I'm sure someone could take a look at if they really wanted to. Has anyone reported this to admin?
it's interesting how it only happens under certain conditions in your case your cookie killer might have some play in it and im curious if you still have it when its turned off i would like to look into it and i'll try to recreate it and see what happens to the cookie but i'm thinking that it's something to do with the framework that the site is ran off
