I am finding that I have to log in again every time I use the forum, even if I have the forum up on my computer all day! This has only just happened in the last couple of days. Usually I could stay logged in for days at a time. This with the forum as one of my screens and using sleep mode overnight. Has anything changed? Or has my computer developed some different habits?
To be quite clear, I can log in during the morning, keep the forum as one of my screens and the next time I call up that screen, I have to log in again, if I want to use messaging, ask a question or just simply reply to a topic. It is quite irritating!

This seems to randomly happen to people, and seems to pass eventually. it may be that your machine is updating something or your ISP is making changes or.... we just don't know why it happens!
It happens to lots of people when we make changes
It can also be caused by having multiple machines logged on, it seems - or having your machine aggressively deleting cookies.
The good news is it does seem to sort itself out in the end.

It had not happened to me until I had the Win 10 update a few days ago.
Mind you, it is the least of the issues the update has caused!

Have you also ticked the "remember me" box?

Also if you have another computer tablet etc that you use it will log the other computer out. This could be happening on some device even if you aren't using it yourself and it thinks it want to keep checking the site.

The first time I login after a cold start there is no "remember me" box. If I get logged out for some reason, perhaps if I log in on my tablet, then when I go to the login page that box is there. Very strange.

About ten days ago I went through a phase of having to log in every time, then the "fault" - if that's what it is -suddenly went away. Another forum I access daily was also affected, but that's also miraculously disappeared.

It happens to me a lot too. I just assumed it was Neil failing to throw an extra log or two into the firebox in time to keep the pressure up to the steam engine that runs this site.

I can log into the forum and then leave the machine for say 30 minutes, when I comeback to the computer I have to log in again!
I have been able to log into the forum and not even log in again for maybe a couple of weeks! I usually put the forum up into a window and just leave it there. I then put the computer into sleep mode overnight, next morning I was still logged in and so on.
This log in problem started about a week ago. Anyone else suffer from this perpetual logging in problem? It is very irritating!

Whoops, please ignore the above post, I didn't think my first post had got though to the forum, hence the second post above!
Bt Openreach has been messing about with the underground cables in the village. They cut me off this morning, both phone and internet. When it came back my machine is now running superfast, maybe the problem was in the cabling? , we shall see.
Yes I always tick the box and it does remember me!
