Staying logged in to this bulletin board

Post by SkyBrowser »

When I log in to this board, there's an option that says "remember me". I always tick this, yet I don't seem to be remembered for more than a very few hours. So next time I visit I have to log in again, which is annoying. Is this the same for everybody? Most sites I use leave you logged in for a week or more.

I do have the same problem, SkyBrowser. I think we have looked at the issue before and never quite got to the bottom of it. I’ll see if I can refresh my memory.

I tend to read this forum using the web browser on my smartphone, via a bookmark link, in which I have my username and password saved. So this throws the login prompt with them autocompleted, which I then just accept and I’m logged in.

It is annoying though. I’ll come back to you on this.

Best wishes, Jeff.

Hopefully just some setting in a configuration file somewhere?

Can you have another try for me please, SkyBrowser, and see if the "remember me" feature works for you now.

Best wishes, Jeff.

It’s working for me now, so I am hopeful you find the same.

Best wishes, Jeff.
