Hope you're feeling better soon, Chris.

Best wishes for recovery!
I didn't know the management fell all on you only.
I am also noticing in various programming forums, the presence from enthusiasts
is no longer what it used to be ... (many years ago...)

Folks,

I've made quite a number of changes to the website login session 
functionality and also added logic that changes the top navigation links 
to show if you're logged in or not ('Login' will be replaced with 'My 
Account' if you are). In addition, visiting /community/login/ will now 
redirect you to /community/login/edit/ if you're already logged in. 
Finally, the latter page now has a 'Logout' link.

I have also extended the session timeout to 7 days (was 24 hours) for 
most cases. Note that sessions are linked to your IP address; if the 
latter changes, your session will be invalidated.

These changes should make it clearer as to whether you have an active 
login session or not, as well as hopefully clearing up some of the cases 
where sessions get invalidated when they shouldn't.

Please let me know of any incorrect behavior with sessions.

-- Chris

Thanks Chris!  It looks like you're doing a lot of crazy server wizardry  :)

I just tried the logging in thing - that worked fine.
The weird thing that happened though is that now all of the posts I've already
visited have a dark blue HTML link color rather than the lighter "already
visited" color.

I'm not sure what happened there --- is there some URL difference between
logged-in and not?

When I was in the process of testing the change to the last link in the 
navigation menu I noticed that the CSS that defines the appearance of 
navigation links was inconsistent between www.povray.org and 
news.povray.org. Apart from being inconsistent it was also confusing (at 
least to me) as they were opposite: on www visited links were darker 
than un-visted and on news the opposite applied.

Typically visited links should be de-emphasized; the default behavior of 
both Firefox and Chrome is to have such links a darker shade than 
un-visted ones. This is the behavior on www.povray.org and I have now 
applied that to the navigation menu of news.povray.org.

Given it's affecting some other links I'll need to look into why (I was 
going to tweak those later, so it will change eventually anyhow, but 
probably not exactly as it appears right now).

-- Chris

They have always been a bit confusing to me as well.

If by "darker shade" you mean "less saturated hue", then yes, that's what I've
always come to expect.  I was unaware that ALL of the pages were controlled by
CSS, I just assumed it was controlled by the browser defaults...
