    User logged in simultaneously with same details Link to this post

    Hello all,

    I've a member system set up for a specific section on a test site and all is working swimmingly. I've noticed during testing though that I can login as the same user simultaneously on different browsers. Now this is actually pretty handy for testing but I'm wondering if it's something I should be checking for in a live environment.

    Anyone else any experience with this and if so any tips on how to accomodate this in a live environment? I guess what I'd like ideally would be that if you log in from a separate browser/computer and you're already logged in then it logs out the existing session. I suspect I might be able to cobble this together in a controller but was wondering if there is a standard way of doing this that exists already?

    Any help appreciated.

    In a couple trials I did to try and stop this it just ended up breaking things like previewing while editing, opening multiple tabs so simply ignored it. There's a module - concurrent editing which provides a warning in the cms if you're editing from multiple pages which might be suitable enough for your case.
