Have To Log In Every Time?

How come I have to log in every time, all of a sudden? Been happening all week. Remember Me is checked. Anybody else finding this?

This happens to me as well...sorry for the hassle - it is a function of the software that runs the board and is not at all my personal doing.
The good thing is that the second I put in the first character of my user name, the rest gets filled out.

So it's not a temporary glitch? I used to check off Remember Me and would be logged in automatically.

It's definitely worse for me than it used to be. I'm having to log in multiple times a day, sometimes even in the middle of replying to a post. I used to go weeks without entering my password.

Thanks Marko. Something has changed in the last week. BEfore I could go for months before having to log in. Now it's every time I come on and the name/password doesn't self populate for me either, as you say it does for you.

so odd - Almost all forums work better with cookies set to ON - so please make sure this is the case and this is controlled in the settings of the browser that you use.

If your cookies are set to off, there is likely nothing I can do to help....just as an FYI

It goes without saying that we don't use cookies for anything unsafe, it just remembers your personal settings.

Only happening with this forum. I think if cookies are OFF it would be all of them? I do have a new computer so I did think it was only me but seems others are in the same boat. Can cookies be OFF for only one website?
