I have an issue similar to this: Login page does not redirect when already logged in, but this issue was closed two years ago.

I already log in at stackexchange.com using OpenID, but when I navigate to stackoverflow.com, it shows as I have not logged in.

  • I'm not even sure if it is supposed to work that way. Base on universal login you get logged in automatically on everything under *.stackexchange.com but have to re-authenticate for other domains like StackOverflow, Super User and ServerFault. For me it looks like it works as designed. – rene Aug 27 '16 at 14:46

  • You might be right we need to wait for a dev to confirm. – rene Aug 27 '16 at 14:58
  • Even when i click on stackoverflow link from stackexchange.com site drop-down link it asking for login. – Jophy job Aug 27 '16 at 15:05
  • Any number of things could have happened here. Maybe you lost cookies on stackoverflow.com? What happens if you log out and log back in? – Adam Lear Aug 27 '16 at 17:58
  • You can also just log in on stackoverflow.com, that should also fix things back up. – Adam Lear Aug 27 '16 at 18:00
