I think the auto-login might be working now. I found a && that should have been a &.

It's working for me now. Thanks!

How many lines of code did you comb through before you finally saw the issue? Or did you some sort of automated code checker thing?

Finding it was manual. There's a small block of PHP code that's loaded on all pages for things like auto-login and headers. I kept messing around with it until I saw the logic error.

My programming style is as mistake prone as a Jaguars passing scheme.

& I must say well done.

Well, maybe I spoke too soon. I closed Chrome and started it again and guess what? SpoFi had me logged out again.

Code was fine until it got corrupted by Jalen Ramsey's mouth.

In fluid physics, NoMich's logout is known as a Fournette precursor.

Logged me out again too. Aargh!

What's the difference between & and &&? I've only been taught to use && in my intro-courses.

& is usually for bit-shifting. In 20 years of coding I've used it about twice. I am suspicious that changing from && to & would fix things. It's like someone saying they adjusted a comparison from == to =

Using && instead of & will cause the second half of an expression to not be evaluated if the first part is false.

If an expression was if ( && and was false, would never be called.

The place I work makes heavy use of && in JavaScript. Here's a good Stack Overflow question on the subject.

Javascript would be much more verbose without &&. Javascript also doesn't really do bit-shifting. :p
