When a Discourse tab is open, and the user is logged out remotely (by strict logout or the admin), normally, you receive a push notification that tells you you were logged out and need to refresh this page.
If this notification is missed, multiple things error out.
Steps to reproduce:
- log in to a test account
- disconnect from the network
- use an admin account on another device to logout the test user
- reconnect to the network
- try to use Discourse, e.g. open your profile
I’d expect that Discourse notices that your session is invalid, and simply refreshes the page. Instead, you get the standard
:( error message. If you don’t know what caused this, it can be quite confusing until you manually reload the page.
