“Remember Me” functionality broken in 2.2.1
we’re having some issues with the “Remember Me” functionality after 2.2.1. I know this has been reported before (http://ellislab.com/forums/viewthread/195115/) and that a feature request was suggested. I’d like to report this as a bug though.
This is functionality that worked as expected prior to the release of 2.2.1. Checking “Remember Me” would set a cookie in your browser and you wouldn’t have to log in for a certain period of time. You could visit your favorite website at home and at work, and the remember me functionality would work as expected.
After 2.2.1 it does not work as expected. I don’t think anyone expects a remember me feature to invalidate the cookies set in your other browsers when you’re using it in a new browser. That’s what currently happens - use remember me and it will log you out everywhere else.
How to reproduce
1. Log in w/firefox. Log in w/chrome. You’ve got two sessions working fine in each browser.
2. Delete the entries in your exp_sessions table so that it will have to fallback on the cookie.
3. Refresh your browsers and notice that only the last login works (the other cookie has been invalidated)
If you try the above on an EE install prior to 2.2.1 it will work as expected - that is, it will fallback to the cookie in both browser and you’ll still be logged in both places.
To conclude, this functionality has gone from working as expected to producing unexpected behavior. So, I in my opinion this is a bug that should be fixed.
