Clear cookies problem

Post by Crazy_John » Thu Jul 23, 2015 4:42 pm

Avant its not clearing the cookies when i exit of the program when i use :

Exiting >>> allways erase records when exit , all checked in avant options .
Clear records >>> clear checked items , all checked in avant options .
Clear records button >>> all

Its not deleting the cookies , maybe its not deleting other things too ? (when all is checked in avant options)

EDIT :

Avant clears the cookies .

This "problem" just happens here in the Avant forum , Avant forum use the ip instead of the cookies to be logged in ?

It doesn't, no. it uses cookies + session (server-side cookie)

I've purged the existing sessions, should prevent it getting stuck (waiting for the server to be upgraded)

Upgrade hasn't actually happened yet. Purging the sessions should've logged you out though.

Yes , purging the sessions loged me out , and works also when i click in the logout button of the forum .

But when i clear all records of avant , them refresh the page (or close avant forum and reopen it again) , im still logged in .

This happeans with firefox also .

• have found something , if we are in the avant forum (and we stay there logged in) , we clear all records , refresh the page , and we are still logged in .
•If im logged in , i close the avant forum page , then clear the records , then i go to the avant forum again , im not logged in .

So ,If we stay in the page and clear all records , the forum kinda remember that we still there logged in and keep the cookie somehow .

No big deal , but is different from others that i saw .

Yep, it means the files are locked when Avant is trying to delete/clear them (nothing I can do about that from this end unfortunately)
