Often times, when I'm up to my hind end in gators and snakes, I tend to have several things going on at once, including multiple logins to the ACP. Unfortunately, this isn't possible with 3.1 unless there's a setting someplace that I'm missing. Please, for those of us that multi-task like crazy, multiple logins to the ACP is a must.
I have used multi-ACP sessions numerious times. Works for me. ;)
Check your security settings. You might have the option on that prevents more than one session at a time.
Grrrr. It was the Match user's IP Address during session validation setting. Had it on, which disallowed multiple ACP sessions.
Isn't this now a "lowered" overall security to the entirety of the forum? I am not sure what exactly session validation includes, but if it was included in the first place I assume that there have been problems/attacks that exploit session to which you might now be vulnerable?
It's a trade off. And with mod_security running at the server level, one I'm willing to make.
You could just open new tabs in one session?
Yah, I'm not sure entirely why you'd favour having multiple open sessions as the same user rather than multiple tabs in one browser.
But no matter. As you can tell, the function you're asking for is already there :)
This was with multiple tabs. Soon as I'd open another tab and log into the ACP, the first tab would log me out. Multiple instances doesn't necessarily mean with two browser windows. ;)
You know, I've never seen that happen. Wha browser was that? I know with IE if you used "new tab" it opened the new tab in the same process with shared session...
IE? Perish the thought! Using Opera / Linux. ;)
Try using an option to DUPLICATE the tab. When you open a new tab and then sign in, it creates a new session ID because the session ID isn't stored in a cookie, it's stored in the URL.
