I have to log in again everytime I visit a different subsection of LDS.org

Hi,

Like it says in the title: I have to log in again everytime I visit a different subsection of LDS.org like maps.lds.org, tech.lds.org, ldsaccount.lds.org and so on.

I'm primarily using google Chrome and I have to log in again and again if I go to a different site within the lds.org domain even if I use the same tab. But I heard it should also work between tabs (source: IRC channel of LDSTech).

Also, IE9 is exhibiting the same behavior.

For both browsers they are pretty much standard config, no private browsing, cookies are enabled, no toolbars except Roboform.

So please let me know if I'm doing anything wrong.

Best regards,

SuHwak

You're not doing anything wrong, but what you heard on the IRC channel must have been overly general, or you misunderstood. The current state of things is that Single Sign On is not implemented everywhere. Once you sign in to lds.org you can freely switch among the following without signing in again:

  • Directory
  • Calendar
  • Maps
  • My Study Notebook
  • Personal Progress
  • Duty to God
  • Pretty much any site or area that has the standard lds.org header (the one with Menu and Tools options).
But the other areas you mentioned all require a separate sign in:

  • LDSTech (every area except the Forum)
  • LDSTech Forum
  • ldsaccount.lds.org
  • (many other sites)
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.
