    Sessions are stored in Vanilla via a cookie. Many things can delete this cookie.

    Best bet is to start debugging. Disable all addons and enable them one by one until you figure out what is causing it.

  • I already done that, and found that when i try to add signature for myself or any other person does that, it signs out the user very moment. Is this anyway related to modification of cookie salt?

    If you think it might be related to cookies, clear out your browsers cookies.

  • it might be related to the cookie domain. Is it broad or specific?

    if you have a cookie for www. and a cookie for domain without catch all sub domains, becuase this has the same salt it would invalidate the session (similar if you were running copies with the same salt).

    You want to 301 redirect www. to just domain or vice versa, whichever you use the most.

    grep is your friend.
