[SOLVED] Is there a "stay logged in" option?

It's certainly not a big deal to log in regularly, but it's nice when one doesn't have to. Is there a button that I haven't found yet that will allow me to stay logged in all the time?

I think there must be as I certainly stay logged on, even when I close the window and then click the link on a notification. I seem to remember a check box somewhere when I first logged on (such a long time now though). If you can't find it, any of the mods will help you.

If you login from the black bar at the top of the page there is an option that says 'Always stay logged in' with a tick box.

For some reason you don't get that option if you log in using the blue login button on the right hand side.
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

Ha! Who knew?
I've been disappeared for months and have been mooching about for a couple of days trying to get my sew-jo back. I've spent ages reading back/trying to catch up and I keep getting logged out in me prime!!!  :|

Why doesn't my computer, or the forum, recognise my password? I have to type it in every time. Even when I ask it to "remember" or to "stay logged in". Each time I want to log into the forum, it shows my old forgotten password (I think) which I have to delete and then type in my new password. It's driving me nuts. Is this problem at "my end"? :'(

If it's showing your old password, then you probably have your old password saved somewhere in your browser - I'm afraid we don't handle any password saving here.

Does it log you out when you close all site windows and then immediately return?

Hmm, that is odd. It does log you out after a long period of inactivity but it shouldn't do within a few seconds.

Im always logged in ....

I think your problem @Lowena  may be that you clear all your cookies after every day ...
I think I read that from you somewhere ... if so, you are effectively setting back to factory settings or something!

I clear my cache and cookies everytime I leave the computer, but I still used to be logged in ( I don't clear saved passwords ) but it's not a problem, it doesn't take a second  :)
