Richard Cyganiak: I often see a problem where half the system thinks that I'm logged in, while the other half insists I'm not. Logout then login again may fix it.

David Read: I think I've seen it several times that the "My Account" link is given (suggesting you're logged in) but when you click it it asks you to log in, which means you weren't.

  • Keywords ux added
  • Owner changed from dread to zephod
  • Status changed from new to assigned

This problem is now more obvious because we display use name. If there is an user icon, but no user name then you are in this 'inbetween' state.

The problem is that the cookie exists in your browser, but it is not valid, for whatever reason.

The solution is to change the css/javascript that displays the Register/My? Account bit in the corner to talk to Auth, rather than just check for the cookie.
