Re-directed to Yahoo Login After Cookies Are Deleted

Jan 12, 2009 at 4:20 PM
I have a C# based web application that utilizes the API.  I've noticed that after I clear out the cookies on my development box, when I launch my web app and programatically authenticate myself I get re-directed to the Yahoo Login page.  Once I've signed into Yahoo everything is fine.

I created a Flickr/Yahoo login a week or so ago to do my development work.  Is there something I'm missing to avoid this when this application is pushed into Production?  From what I can tell my Yahoo session will only be good for a maximum of 2 weeks.  I'm authenticating myself the same way the example web app ( does.

Any ideas?  Thanks.

Sounds like its working fine.

Even though your Yahoo login says 2 weeks Flickr will continue to know who you are until you either log out or clear your cookies.

Flickr is owned by Yahoo you know - so signing its Flickr is done via Yahoo now.
