Well the general lack of response seems to indicate that no one else is bothered by the lack of auto login. Perhaps it's a convenience that has had its day, but I'm always saddened by "improvements" that are retrograde. If anyone can point out my error, and there is a way to auto login, I'd be a happy man. john
Hi Sea Urchin. Like I said in the #1, if I go to the "My Profile" page to update the auto login box, it tells me that "that nickname is already taken" - treating me as a new user. I've just repeated the process in front of my wife, just to make sure age wasn't getting the better of me, and she agreed that the result is crazy. I used to use the auto login, but not having been here for some time, I noticed the layout had been updated. As a consequence of that the auto login box wasn't ticked it seems. And now I can't change it. :[ John
So have you had to change your nickname to be posting now - presumably at the top of the Forum page it says "Welcome greybeard" in which case you are signed in. You can click that to get to your profile. Or maybe I'm misunderstanding.
Yes, slight misunderstanding. I don't have any problems signing in manualy with my original name and password. What I can't do is to tick the auto login box, and have the forum accept that I am me - even though I am already logged in.
I'm not sure if deleting any existing cookies will make any difference, as I do that regularly as a form of "housekeeping" anyway.
I'd be interested in hearing from FE on this one. John
