    Is anyone else having problems getting the forum to remember you when you navigate away from the site to somewhere else? I am ticking the box to ask it to remember me when I go to login but as soon as I leave and then return, even a few seconds later, I have to log in again.

    I tried clearing out my cookies and temporary internet files etc following the URL revert, as it only started happening this afternoon, but it still won't remember me.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers,

    Tom

    Are you using a bookmark to the old temporary site to "login"? If you are you might try deleting the bookmark and updating it once you login. My guess is your using an old bookmark to the temporary site (THEREPLICAPROPFORUM) and being redirected to our original site "THERPF" which puts you on the login page showing Black Widow looking at you. Once loged back in update your bookmark. Worked for me!

    Congradulations Art for taking back your stolen Web Site !!

    Clear your browsers cookies and cache, then restart your browser and try it again... also, be sure to check the "Remember Me?" box.

    Nope, didn't work. If I close Firefox, I have to re-login again.

    Mighty Montagar,
    I did that, still no joy. :(

    Did you also check the little "remember me " box?

    You checked the "Remember Me?" box when you logged in, and your sure that Firefox is not removing cookies when you close it? When you open Firefox, check the cookies before going to the site to make sure that they are still there after restarting Firefox.

    The cookie is something different from "therpf.com" right?

    I had checked in Firefox Tracking x Tell websites I don't want to be tracked.

    After I unchecked it, then followed you procedures, I didn't have to login again. Thanks.

    I think my issue was caused due to me being logged into the old URL on my phone and using the new URL on my computer. I logged out on my phone and now it remembers me again! Thanks.

    Same problem. I do not use a bookmark. I do check Remember Me. I don't even have to navigate away; it times me out after a while. Firefox, Mac PowerPC.

    We have seen this before and it always comes back to a cookies or cache issue and a matter of them not being completely cleared out.

    Apparently not always. I have done those things and can not stay logged in.

    Somewhere, something is holding onto a cookie or some type of caching.

    I hate doing it, because it means I have to figure out and add in passwords everywhere I go now - but to remove this step on this site, I went ahead and deleted all my cookies, rebooted Firefox and I'm STILL not able to stay logged in. :(

    If someone fixes it for themselves, please let us know.

    We had this exact same issue in the past when we had to change the site's cookies. It is specifically tied to the browser not removing all of the cookies when the removal process has been followed.

    I would be happy to have a support session with anyone that is having this issue to see if we can get it cleared up.

    Ok... 1 down... Guri had forgotten that she set the browser to block cookies from therpf.com (during the hacking situation). As a result, the cookies were not being set properly to allow her to say logged in.

    My problem was Guri's problem. I cleared my cache, deleted the old RPF cookie, and THEN went and unblocked the RPF from accepting cookies. Problem solved.

    Keeps happening to me on my Mac with Crome. Deleted cookie's, emptied the cache, and replaced bookmark. Only thing I haven done is restart the computer. Any suggestions?

    Why does the forum keep logging me out?

    I just switched to Chrome here at work because Firefox kept crashing on me. I use Chrome at home and have never had this issue, but here every time I go back to the forum after being on another tab for awhile or whatever, i'm logged out and have to log back in!

    It's not happening with any other site but this one. :confused
