Being kept signed in

I use the classic skin because I find the new one difficult to read and navigate. However, it only remembers this if I'm logged in. Whereas I used to be logged in all the time, now if I don't use the site for a while I have to log in again. Is this intentional or a bug?

Hmm, me neither. I never have been able to.

But, with my current run of luck with new features on the board, my problem will probably be user-error.

Re: Being kept signed in

IF YOU REALLY CANNOT GET ON:
Close all the browser windows you have open, and clear every cookie you have, if you are not allowing cookies to be saved on your pc or you use something to block cookies, this will be the reason.

Let us know.

Re: Being kept signed in

I find CCleaner to be quite effective in removing all the internet related crud I don't want to keep and other temp files. It's free and very good IMO. However, saying that, use at your own risk as I just let it clean everything as I don't rely on cookies etc for auto logging in to any sites.

Re: Being kept signed in

I keep getting signed out as well, even after deleting cookies for ie & mozilla. If I sign in I can browse and stay signed in, look at attached pictures etc - but when I click on quick reply it forces me to sign in. Again.

I'm surprised the forum software isn't clever enough, or doesn't have the option to detect the cookie is of the wrong version, automatically delete and recreate itself following the upgrade, most other web software does, it saves the users having to do it manually!

Re: Being kept signed in

Yep, I'm still struggling this morning.

I think my PC is the only one on our network that has viewed AO (??!!)

Have deleted all the cookies, erased this as a saved page and started from scratch and I still keep on being signed out.

Any ideas anyone

Worked a treat for me. On OSX Panther using Safari. Closed the window, went to cookies, deleted anything with alfaowner in the name, came back to alfaowner and signed in again.

I had the window closed overnight, clicked on my bookmark this morning and it worked fine.

Yes... You still have a cookie on there somewhere, delete them off, close the browser windows first though. Then go back to cookies folder and verify they are all gone. This will definitely cure the problem.

Re: Being kept signed in

At last! Searched for cookies and found one I'd missed. Working normally again.
