I have 2 websites...1 for my high school class & 1
for my 8th grade class. I use 1 email address.
Until today I could access only 1 site at a time.
Now when I log in to one site I seem to automatically
log in to the other.
This wouldn't be a problem since I go from one site
to the other frequently.
However, the second site that logs in automatically
does not allow me access to the administrative links.
So I need to log out of the first site and then log
in the second to have adminstrative access.
What has happened?

I also help my husband with his class website, When I access his site without logging out of my class website it says I am logged in on his site as myself. There is no place for me to logout from his site to log in as him on his site. UGH!

That's the really weird part...when you can't
log out from a site.

I started the second website about a month ago
and until today could only access one site at
a time because I use the same email address.

My question is how can I be logged in on both
sites (without actually logging in on the 2nd
one)& then not be able to access the adminstrative
functions PLUS not be able to log out since there
is no link visible to do so?

Something has changed and I don't know why.

I, too, have two web sites and access only to one, which I can't seem to log out of. The second advises me that I'm logged in to it, but no administrative features are displayed.

I would like to change the second to another email address and put my husband down as administrator in hopes that will solve the problem but can't figure out how to do this without access to administrative pages. Help!

I'm going to have a programmer investigate this. We just changed cookie types to increase security and I suspect it's causing the multiple site login issues being reported here.

Okay, I made some changes over the weekend that allowed us to be a little more secure in the way we did authentication.

But it erroneously marks you as "logged in" even when you're on a site that isn't yours.

That should be resolved now.

BTW, if you have two sites with domain names, you *CAN* be logged into both sites at the same time.

Thank you Rick. I'm seriously glad YOU answered this one. Smile

Many thanks, Rick, for resolving the problem.
