    Whenever I try to log in at either dev.bukkit or bukkit.org, It just goes through but... doesn't log me in. and the only way I can log in is clearing cookies each time.

    Delete your cookies. This is cause because to keep the user logged in, it stores a cookie, wich expires in 7 days, it gets expired, it automatically logs you out. IThe problem happens, because it never delets this cookie, and it always logs you out immedialitely.

    Both websites are separate login systems. Are you actually seeing this issue on both dev.bukkit and bukkit.org?

    As far as I know, both uses cookies to store data. I've never seen dev.bukkit.org login not working.

    Yeah I only have issues with the forums, too. No issues on DBO concerning logging in. Issues regarding password reset obviously remain (2+ years now, wooh!)

    @ZeldoKavira DBO's fine now, idk what happened but, it's just bukkit.org that's doing this now

    Now, that I got home, I could futher examine this problem. I looked at the cookie list (open interactive console with F12 and type in document.cookie, it should print out all of them), then I found a cookie named f_user with an expiry date of 2016.05.10 (and a cookie monster cookie :confused:). If I'm correct (and because I can't look at bukkit's PHP code there's a high chance I'm wrong), then this cookie manages the "keep logged in" feature.

    I also tested, and this cookie disappears, if i login without the "keep logged in" checked.

    There's obviously something happening, when this cookie expires. As i don't have a month to test it, I can only assume, some other non-expiring cookie I wasn't aware of stores, if I used the "keep logged in" feature, and PHP logs you out immedialitely, if the last cookie exists, but the first one doesn't.
