Get signed out constantly

I sign in using my gmail account. Sometimes a move in the menu works okay, but most of the times any move in the menu causes an immediate sign out.

    sounds like authentication is dropping out. I dont use gmail sign in so hopefully someone can assist. Make sure you are only signed in and have email open for the one account

  • What do you mean with 'you are only signed in' and 'have email open for the one account''?

    if you have email open for gmail, signed in to that as [email protected] and also log in to vanilla with say [email protected] you could find an issue. Its the same for gmail and youtube.

    also what does a 'move in the menu' mean ?

  • A 'move in the menu' is my wording for any choice. For example, choosing a discussion or the inbox.

    I indeed use several gmail accounts on my laptop. That might be a problem. But I now also start to doubt whether or not I completely finished the upgrade from 1.1.5a to version 2 of Vanilla. I did that some weeks ago and had to do many things by hand, rather then by an automated process.

  • I get the impression that the fault is in Vanilla. When choosing the google button I get signed in immediately (picture 1). When choosing the signin button it works some of the times and it fails most times (pictures 2 and 3). If it fails it displays the signin form (picture 4).

    As @422 says, it can be caused by having 2 instances of Vanilla open in your browser at the same time, so perhaps having a Vanilla and GMail account both logged in at the same time can also cause the problem.

    Make sure you have closed down or logged out of any GMail account, and only have one instance of Vanilla open.

    If the situation recurs after that, then I would suggest reporting it as an issue on Github.

    if you have multiple gmail accounts make sure those account are connected. if you are signing into multiple gmail accounts you are doing it wrong.

    grep is your friend.
