:tools: Scheduled maintenance

Heads up! Downtime for the Forums, related to the NodeBB upgrade, is planned for Thursday, December 14, starting from 10:00 UTC.
Please make sure to finish all your posts before this time. The downtime should only last for a few minutes.

Error message keeps coming up. Cannot log out of Opera Forums.

  • (cross-post from Opera for Linux)

    I am writing these lines with my previous browser (Firefox), because I am locked out of Opera Forums when I use Opera!

    I reset the password to my account, and then I got the error message "Sitzungsdiskrepanz. Es scheint als wäre deine Login-Sitzung nicht mehr aktiv oder sie passt nicht mehr mit der des Servers. Bitte aktualisiere diese Seite.."

    In English: Session discrepancy. It seems like your login session is no longer active or does no longer match that of the server. Please reload this page".

    And no matter how often I reload the page, the error keeps coming back. Even shutting down Opera, restarting and reloading the page does not help. Even killing Opera and rebooting does not help,I also created a new account (because auth.opera.com still works), but even within the freshly created account I get the same error message!

    There is no "logout" option... I can not log out of Opera Forums and log back in, so I need a sure way to kill the session data that Opera keeps...

    Thanks
    Oliver

    Click on your avatar at the top right and you will see the option to logout.

  • Hm, there is no avatar. So it seems I am not logged in, but the error messages still keep coming!

  • Did you try deleting cookies?

  • Your time/time-zone it's correct?

    At the other hand,
    look at How to report problems in Opera steps.

    For the clean profile:

    • Opera Help > Find solutions.
      | - And rename the profile folder -.

    Windows 10 (x64) | Anniversary Update
    Opera Stable · Beta · Developer

    Opera Test profile | Opera Back up Linux · Mac · Win

  • Leo'S suggestion about deleting cookies for Opera.com and subdomains is the correct one. Once you delete all cookies for a site that site will treat you as logged out. Remember to use the new password when you log back in later.

  • Thanks. Deleting cookies solved the problem (time & time zone are correct, by the way).

  • Hi. Sorry about that. The problem comes from the fact that we had to change cookie domain for security reasons - which means that for some users you need to delete old cookie otherwise it will keep interfering (your browser will keep sending it along with the new one).

    Clearing cookies (all or just for opera.com domain) is the correct solution for now. But I will deploy a fix today that should solve this permanently for all - the downside being that it will log everyone out of the Forums.

    Sorry again for all the inconvenience caused! :cry:

    [UPDATE]

    Permanent fix deployed. Please let me know if you still experience any problems! (The fix causes everyone to be logged out of the forums - that's expected and cannot be worked around).
