Thanks for going to so much trouble, Sara. However, all this seems to have done is delete browser 'history' that I would prefer to keep. I still have to log in, despite having ticked the 'log me in automatically' option. Oh well ...............

:hmz:

I do find that the "keep me logged in" isn't a consistent experience for me, and I use multiple machines and devices to access this and other forums. (this is the only phpBB forum I have a problem with)

SANParks tech guys, maybe the issue is with board cookie settings? Is it set to be www.sanparks.org instead of sanparks.org? (I'm reading the latter might work) And can you force it so the main headers aren't cacheable?

Just spitballing. :thumbs_up:

Interesting Stark, because I'm finding that sometimes I stay logged in and sometimes I don't, no consistency at all :hmz: My default home page is http://www.sanparks.org/ and I then click on forums in the dropdown menu. And as I've said from when this log-in problem first started, many many months ago, I have changed nothing. Rather, without my making any changes at all, one day I was no longer logged in automatically every time. Since then, I do on ocassion stay logged in, but more often than not, I have to log in again whenever I return. :wall:

I could never experience any success with "keep me logged in", but couldn't care less. I just log in every day! :thumbs_up:

:roll: I think you've missed the point, Hilda -- which is why offer the 'log me in automatically' option at all if it doesn't work? :roll:

It certainly used to work for me -- for years! :wall:

I must say that on my home machine, i am logged in automatically. with no problems at all.
On the computer in the office, I have to log in every time.
On both machines I use Google Chrome and Sanparks is bookmarked.- any reason for the difference ??

Billyf - as I've said before its not one thing but a combination of a few. Anti-virus settings and how your browser is set up to deal with cookies being the two main ones.

Arks - its offered because, for most people, it does work. Why it doesn't work for your particular settings I don't know unless I got to have a look at your particular set up.

My problem is that it always had worked and then one day, without my having changed anything, it ceased working :wall: which makes no sense (at least to me) at all :wall: :wall:
