    Is anyone else having problems with the autologin function?
    Sometimes when I re-open my browser I am still logged in, at other times (even mid-session) I appear as logged out.
    Any suggestions or ideas ? :-??

    If it isn't anything to do with red wine on your monitor, I'm really not sure s:ymtwisteddevil

    Being serious though, I haven't personally had that issue and I'm usually logged in through several different computers and browsers at various times (Linux using Firefox and Chromium & Windows 7 using Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome).

    No Problems for me , is it that it says logout next to your username that you could be getting confused or are you using history to log back on . Once you are logged in you can save in favourites and then you will be permanently logged in when you go on-line.. (5 bottles of lager ) s;)

    You could try clearing your browser cache and cookies just to make sure nothing has got confused along the line.

    Cheers

    I still haven't managed to resolve this issue.
    I've cleared the cache and ditched all the cookies and reset bookmarks.
    See what happens later......

    Ok. Its helpful to know Titan isn't alone with the issue.

    I know Titan is a Mac user, and iirc so is acousticplayer. So can you let me know which web browsers you are using and I will see what I can find out.

    Cheers.

    Hi Gaz,

    I too have noticed this and have recently moved to a MAC. My web browser is safari.

    Cheers

    Hi. Yes I'm on Safari too. This seems to be the common thread.

    I've had a quick google on the issue, and it doesn't seem uncommon to have login issues to phpBB3 sites using Safari.

    I'm just installing the Safari browser on my Windows 7 machine to see if it's a general Safari issue.

    I needed another browser anyway, as three just isn't enough S:e

    This is kinda funny though butI still prefer my PC however frustrated I get sometimes and just for the record I have owned a mac but found myself not using it in preference to the PC, maybe if I had a macbook I would persevere.
