Logging in

Post by Terry H » Sun Jan 03, 2016 3:42 pm

Hi All,
Anyone have any idea why I have to keep logging in every day or after I turn my computer on. This started happening two days ago, before that I was always logged on. I've not altered anything but something has altered somewhere.

Have you got passwords saved - perhaps your browser software has been updated.

Yes Peter, passwords are saved, but normally, when I get a forum post notification, I just click the link and I get taken straight to read the post. Now when I click the link I have to log in first. It looks as if I'm getting signed out when I turn my computer off, I then have to sign in again when going to Scimitarweb for the first time after I turn my computer on.

Have you allowed remember history - I don't and have to log in each time after about 1 hour - ie when the browser has "gone to sleep" - I use firefox by the way.

I wouldn't have a clue where to do that.

I signed in ages (years) ago and clicked remember login, never had to do it after that. Now something's changed and I don't know what's happened, but if I turn my computer off, when I turn it back on again, my first visit to Scimitarweb requires that I log in with my password again, then its OK until I turn the computer off and on again.

In Firefox history is under tools - options then privacy - god knows where it is in other browsers - or if it is there at all.

Unusually, I had to login today also. Didn't think anything of it until you mentioned it.

My machine started doing that too, around 18 months ago - I think there was another discussion back then too. It's not a big problem (for me at least), as Chrome remembers the credentials, and populates the fields... meaning I just have to press the <enter> key.

Do you have Adblock installed by any chance? I seem to remember that it might have started happening around the time I installed Adblock (I'm not 100% though).

Cheers,

Mike.

Same with me, but annoying when I've not altered anything.

This is the only site where this is happening. If I go to "You Tube" I get auto login. Every other site where a login is required I have auto login without a problem.

I can't comment directly, as I don't use auto-login, so mine always behaves as yours does now, however if you're using Firefox (as I do) I think there was an update very recently, which may perhaps have changed a setting? might be worth clearing cookies (including Forum cookies) and "starting again" and seeing if it remembers you?

Mine has done it for ages. Never found a way of stopping it. Thankfully I get the browser to save my passwords so it's easy to login in :)

Use the link in the blue bar on the bottom of each forum page Delete all board cookies.

The forum uses 'cookies', like most websites do. Cookies are small bits of info on a specific website stored on your pc. It may contain your preferences etc. Most have an expiry date. Likely your cookies have expired. So clear it by using the delete link. New ones will be placed automaticly if you allow it.

I'm using Internet Explorer 11 and running Windows 7 Pro 64bit as I have always done. Never had a problem before now.

Well that didn't work. I lost the thread I was on (this one) and had to get out of the site, then when using the forum post notification link I had to log in again.
