Are you all saying the login issue is caused by popover ads not allowing you to see the login box? Or something else?

it's nothing to do with ads.

I just pushed a new fix which I believe will correct this. To take effect you might need to wipe your browser cache/cookies.

If anyone is still having problems logging in, or staying logged in, please clear your cache and cookies and re-login (check "Remember me") and then if it happens again, let me know what page you clicked on that logged you out (for example - showthread.php or forumdisplay.php).

Updated first post again to clarify.

EDIT: Thanks for the fix. I'll give it a try on multiple devices and report back.

Even though we're all certain that advertisements weren't causing the issue, I just wanted to add further confirmation. I started whitelisting XDA on my adblocker again yesterday and have no login issues.

Yep, that worked, thx!

Switching to 1024 theme also worked for me.

I would literally get logged out for switching tabs and coming back to XDA. Really put a damper on releasing my ROMs this week because every-time I would edit the post and submit, it would say please log back in.

EDIT: Wiping caches seem to work too. Back on normal theme.

Just wanted to pop in and say thanks for making this thread. I too thought it was just the update to chrome or something (on dev builds - so who knows when something doesnt work what the real problem is) - but that it was not the site. But seeing others having this problem is a relief because now I dont have to re-login every time now as that fix fixed it for me (choosing the 1024 theme, they must have changed something so thanks admins!).

It's doing it again today. I'm going to clear my internet cache/history/cookies everything and see if that fixes it. If not, I'll go back to the 1024 theme.

No matter what I do, the 2010 theme doesn't keep me logged in :/
Guess I'll try to get used to the 2013 theme... (that extra space on the right of the browser annoys the heck out of me though)
EDIT: It's "forumdisplay.php" that seems to think I'm logged out, until I either refresh the page or open another link ("showthread.php" doesn't do it to me)
EDIT2: The 2013 theme doesn't work any better, it still thinks I'm logged out after 15 minutes of inactivity, then logs me back in after refreshing

Going back to the 1024 template fixed it for me. When I thought things had been fixed, I was still on the 1024 template. Switching back to the forum default is what messed me up again.

So, the forum default XDA 2013 beta has login issues. The 1024 version does not.
