  • my login status seems to change at random

    My status seems to change from logged in to guest at random (?) as I move around the site. Today, for example, I did the following

    1) went to forums and logged in
    2) went to search and entered some terms
    3) view the resulting posts - I'm now shown as guest
    4) back from viewing post - I'm now shown as logged in
    5) click on "New Posts" - I'm now a guest again

    Not disasterous as I can always logon as needed but very puzzling.

    Try logging out of the Forums. This clears the cookie that remembers your password. The log back in and tick remember password. See if that fixes it.

      Hi Biggles,

      I used to tick the "remember me" box but it never worked (either at home or work). Still doesn't. I always have to enter my username & password. Makes no difference if I'm using Mozilla or IE.

        What happens if your try it on another PC? Don't forget to clear it if it works.
        Are you able to clear all the Cookies on the affected PC?

          Hi Biggles77,

          Well as this was happening on both my home and work PC's I didn;t think it could be machine related. But I'm currently on my daughter's machine and for the first time I've logged on to the forums. I've jumped around, done searches, paged back etc but it always knows me.

          So this machine (XP Pro like the other two) seems to behave differently. Hmmm. I might try repeating the test on this machine tomorrow to see if the problem shows up when I logon for second time.

            I had a similar problem on another forum once. It turned out the cookie was being blocked by my firewall...
            It's not a lot of help but it's a little...
