Description

This has happened a couple times. Fortunately I captured some data this one. I can't find a related ticket, though I've seen a conversation here and there on IRC about it.

  • Logged out mid-ticket, showed as 'Anonymous' in the reply box on Trac.
  • Attempted to login a few times, goes back to same page after accepting credentials and still appears logged out.
  • Deleted only the wordpress.org cookies, authenticated fine. Not sure if the triplication of the wporg cookies mattered there?

core.trac.wordpress.org - 6 cookies
trac_form_token
trac_session

wordpress.org - 15 cookies
wporg (x3)
wporg_sec (x3)
wporg_logged_in
wordpress_test_cookie
jetpack_blog_subscription
devicePixelRatio

make.wordpress.org - 5 cookies

Do you normally use wordpress.org over http or https?

I've noticed less problems with cookies since going full https on my side of things.

  • Component changed from General to Trac

It will help to know the domain, path, and secure flags of these cookies (it's why there are more than one).

Replying to Otto42:

It appears HTTPS for Trac and HTTP for other wordpress.org sites. I should retrain my browser. :)

Ahh, true. I'll grab that detail the next time it happens.

  • Resolution set to worksforme
  • Status changed from new to closed

I haven't seen another report of this, and all of WordPress.org is now forced SSL, so I imagine this may no longer be an issue.
