Auto-Login Isn't Working: The server move has caused auto-login to stop working (at least for some users).

I think it sometimes works for me in Chrome. I'd like to know who it is working (or not working) for and what browser you use.

I was just coming here to the LR to report this. It hasn't worked for me in 3 visits over yesterday and today. I am using Chrome version 66.0.3359.181 on Windows 10. Chrome started updating when I opened the About window, but that's the version I was using the last two days.

Happening to me in Chrome. There's something weird about it too: when I just came back, I saw the login form but also saw "4 comments (1 new)" on a post even though I was theoretically not logged in. When I logged in, that went away. So it's possibly a case where however you're testing to show the login form or not is the actual culprit.

It's definitely the form itself: I just saw it when I came back, clicked into a thread without logging in and was logged in & able to comment.

Hmm. I've made a change to the home page. Let me know if this fixes the problem.

Whenever I visit the home page, I see the login form, but I also see the (? new) on any updated posts. If I log in, I lose the new comment numbers, but if I simply refresh the page, it shows me logged in and shows the new comment numbers.

Similar to MeatSaber, it always shows me as not logged in when I hit the front page, but if I click on a thread or refresh, I'm logged in (FireFox on Windows 10)
