Fix Authentication Error
If a user clicks on the link to the discussion forums that is provided at the bottom of notifications, before they visit the ASDWA site and sign in, they may get an "Authentication Error". This forces the user to log out of the site, then log back in, before they're able to reach the Forums. While this isn't so bad, once the user logs in, they are not redirected to the discussion. The system needs to 'remember' the user was requesting access to that discussion and redirect them to it after successful log-in.
Authentication was changed such that this should no longer be an issue. Users are no longer given the option to “stay logged in”, which should eliminate some of the cookie handling issues.
this is important!
