Lol i thought everyone knew what SSO stood for.
Ugh, I just learned that too.

You are kidding me ? How did you think you were logged in across the different domains ?

Hi folks.

The ”?sso” is something we added to the site switcher, to make our cross-site sign-in work with the improved home page caching that we’ve started doing recently.

I won’t bore you with the long technical explanation as to why it’s needed, but it is meant to be there. :)

Thanks Notahat, it’s great.
Staff should add same url suffix to links in side menu too.

I didn’t tried in chrome because I’m already logged in to all marketplaces. I tried with firefox – it works. But I want to report that it’s not working on my htc with opera mobile. Actually I didnt clicked on link in switcher because switcher is not working for me in opera mobile, but I typed url manually – and I’m not logged in.

ooo I see ?sso in the portfolio area too (ie: toggling between portfolios on marketplaces).

wonder if this is to help those computers that do not sent referral headers? only bounce the user to the http://marketplace.envato.com/signin/get_signin_key service if the ?sso flag it set or something

awwww! but we love boring technical explanations :(
