Re: Trouble with first time login
That still happens at bbpress.org/forums as well. This was reported long ago, but it still happens here. Maybe the same thing is happening to you.
I have noticed that even though the redirect seems to continue until the browser times out, if I cancel the page load, then just try to access the forum, I am logged in. Maybe you would find the same thing?
Maybe it’s not noticed frequently by people who use bbPress heavily since their cookie never times out and they’re never asked to log in again?
