Automatic Logout after using the CKEditor

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I never had problems with PW but now I have a strange problem with frequent logout issues. As an example: When I click in the CKEditor at the Image Button then Processwire asks me to login. What I tried:

$config->sessionFingerprint = false;
$config->sessionFingerprint = 8;
Session Handler Database

I don´t know how to solve the problem. This is what phpinfo() outputs:

Directive Local Value Master Value
session.auto_start Off Off
session.cache_expire 180 180
session.cache_limiter nocache nocache
session.cookie_domain no value no value
session.cookie_httponly On Off
session.cookie_lifetime 0 0
session.cookie_path / /
session.cookie_secure Off Off
session.entropy_file /dev/urandom /dev/urandom
session.entropy_length 32 32
session.gc_divisor 1000 1000
session.gc_maxlifetime 86400 1440
session.gc_probability 0 0
session.hash_bits_per_character 5 5
session.hash_function 0 0
session.lazy_write On On
session.name wire PHPSESSID
session.referer_check no value no value
session.save_handler user files
session.save_path /var/lib/php/sessions /var/lib/php/sessions
session.serialize_handler php php
session.upload_progress.cleanup On On
session.upload_progress.enabled On On
session.upload_progress.freq 1% 1%
session.upload_progress.min_freq 1 1
session.upload_progress.prefix upload_progress_ upload_progress_
session.use_cookies On On
session.use_only_cookies On On
session.use_strict_mode Off Off
session.use_trans_sid 0 0


Do you have any ideas how to solve this problem? I already updated PW but it didn´t help.

What does your session log show? (Setup > Logs > session)

Also, I'm having a similar issue. Session cookie is set to expire with session, so it asks for password at least once an hour.

Unfortunately, it's not the case with my setup. To make sure there aren't any broken images I cleared all CKEditor and image fields, yet the issue persists.

@jannisl, @formulate, I can't reproduce the issue here (maybe it depends on what you have set in "HTML Options" on the Details tab of the CKEditor field settings), but if you are able to work out the steps for reproducing the problem could you please file a GitHub issue so it can be fixed in the core?

It's been a while since I had these issues, but yes it's definitely tied to some setting in CKEditor as not everyone seems to have this issue. As Robin mentioned, it's most likely one of the image related settings in CKEditor under the "HTML Options" settings. One of those checkboxes is messing with things. I haven't had time to try and debug/test it further, but that's where my suspicions are at.
