Signing in multiple times!

    I have noticed that when editing/updating articles on some of the niche sites, I am required to sign in all over again in order to access the edit function.

    This is not true on all of the niche sites; it is rather annoying, when I am already signed in to the HP main site.  If we have to sign in again for the niche sites, or if we do not, can we at least have some consistency between them, so it is either all or none having this requirement?

    Thank you.

      It seems to come and go without reason.  But one solution I've found is to open the hub and then, if the "stats" button and such (indicating I'm signed in) aren't there to refresh the page.  It always results in being able to get into the hub.

    I do exactly what wilderness does. When I click the hub if I don't see the stats etc I just refresh and every single time it works. I've never had to sign in again. It's a safety protocol by HP I think where they sign you out after 48 hours or some other time period. But when you reload it's probably got something to do with the cookies and you are signed in again as you are signed into HP.

    There’s no difference between the various niche sites. It’s all very consistent once you know what’s happening.

    You stay logged in for a period of time, as lobobranden had pointed out. If you haven’t gone into any particular niche site for a while you will be logged out of that site and need to log back in. It all depends on when you last visited that niche.

    You mentioned that your primary concern deals with when you need to edit your hubs. If you click the edit button left of the hub's title in your stats listing, it will automatically log you in wherever it is.

      I think you're right - it is dependent on how it's been since visiting that niche.

      But unlike Dzy I'm generally there to approve/add a comment, not to edit.  Simply refreshing the page signs me in without going into edit at all.

        Why do you even bother to go to the niche sites to approve/add comments? That’s such hard work. How would you know what hubs to check on?

        I do it all from one place under the global comment page, where you can see all the pending comments no matter where they are. In addition, you can also view the spam folder and low quality folder to see what other comments may have been incorrectly tagged as spam or low quality. Plus, you don’t need to bother with logging into individual niche sites either. I think you’re missing out on all that.

          I get an email that says there is a comment and includes a link to it.  Click the link and (if I'm signed in) I go straight to the comment that was just placed.  Now and then check on the stats page for pending comments, spam, etc.

            That works. But I find it awkward to answer comments in hubs. You can only respond to one without refreshing. Plus, as you already know, you have to be signed in if it’s on another niche site. I avoid all that nonsense by moderating and answering comments from the global comments page. You call it the stats page. We’re talking about the same thing. The stats page is really where the hubs are listed. I know you know that. Just making it clear for others who read this. I call the comment moderation page the global comments page. It doesn’t really have a defined name.

    Yes, it can be a little annoying. After I'm done editing, I click the back button 2 or 3 times to get me back to the stats page, then hit refresh.

    Thanks, folks!  I'll try refreshing the page and see if that helps!  Appreciate the suggestion.

      Did you see my answer to wilderness Liz?  It's so much easier. No need to sign in or to refresh.

        Yes, I saw that, but it didn't apply.  I was speaking of making edits, not answering comments.  I do use the global comment form to reply to comments.

          Ahh, yes. We actually have two things going on in this thread. My reply about comments was meant for wilderness.

            oops...my bad...that's twice in one week I've misunderstood something.  Ah, but a mind is a terrible thing to lose...  lol
