When I log in to the board , the option I clicked was "forever" and it shows me as a member that is logged in but if I were to leave for a short while, come back, I have to log in again. Why, as it never did this before.

Also, if I'm not logged in, it still shows me as being logged in down at the bottom but I can't post anything unless I go back up top to log in again.

Also also, how come my registered member account under "foolsgold" is not recognized! I see way too many ficticious names every day and a lot of them are deleted but why delete a REAL member?

Since you are registered under both names apparently, I would guess that the program can not keep both names as signed on. That is also assuming you logged in using the same email address. Only a guess on my part. Foolsgold has not been deleted. See below.

I've been waiting for someone to mention this, as it suddenly started happening to me as well a couple of weeks ago. I don't think it's anything to do with my PC as I use usernames dozens of times a day on various sites, and this one is the only one which forgets who I am. It's only a minor irritation - usually it simply means I have to log-in again to see any 'photos (or, of course, occasionally to post)

If I close my browser, then want to sign in all I have to do is click on ALL TOPICS (Click here for quick start). I do not have to log in each time. It has always worked for me.

I just thought of one other thing that might cause problems:

 Forum or Board Default
This is the default theme, which means your theme will change along with the administrators' settings and the board you are viewing. 
1147 people are using this theme.use this theme | preview   b] Classic YaBB SE Theme
The classic look that introduced the groundbreaking PHP/MySQL port of YaBB and distinguished it through two years of development until its rebirth as SMF.

 Simplicity
Simplicity theme by Bloc

Thanks goes to the SMF team for a great forum.

When setting up your profile, the are several profiles you may select. I tried something other than the default theme several months ago and had a similar problem as to what ACE is describing.

I'm like the other poster. I don't think it's my pc cause it won't even let me log OUT once I'm in but it always ask me to log in when I return to it! I tried to look and read without logging in and it allows me to do this sometimes, but mostly it ask me to log in first.

The theme has not changed on my pc so I have no idea what the heck you are trying to say!

All I know is BEFORE I had 2 registrations that worked fine and NOW I have only ONE and that works half as good (if that) as it did before!

Ace,
Try deleting your cookies and Temp Internet files in all of your browsers.

It sounds as if the cookie stored on your system is corrupt and needs to be replaced.

Remember, you will not delete all of the cookies just by clicking on "Delete cookies". You'll have to go to the actual folder and delete them manually.

Make sure you delete them not only from your profile, but also from the admin and user profiles. There will also be a file in each folder named index.dat that can be deleted.

IHTH

It appears, looking at your profiles, that you have been logged in today under each name, Ace and Foolsgold. I suspect you will have to delete one of these profiles.

I have had a similar problem. seems that the new browser cleanup routines for things like McAfee's latest garbage that they keep installing even though I don't want "cleanup" running and clearing my cookies every day.

McAfee also deletes temp files, history and cookies and logins that it thinks it doesn't like even though you tell it to leave stuff alone...
I suspect that some of the routines in the new IE7 and some of the patches to IE6 may also be doing something similar.

Good Luck and let us know if you figure it out.

Hey Dave may have just hit on something, as I just realized that when I use dad's laptop I have to sign in! And when I use my PC or laptop i don't ! The only thing that I know of that has changed on dad's is he has upgraded to IE7 and I have refused too! So that maybe where part of the problem is as my 2 computers that have not been upgraded still work as they always have! and the one that has been upgraded is also making me sign in all the time!
Just my 2 cents worth as I really have no clue! I am as computer illiterate as they come! BK  Grin

Dr. Dave,
I've always detested McCrappies. It not only doesn't work well with many programs, it also installs so much bloatware that has no relevence to anything I want to do.
I eventually went to Nortons and for about 6 years, that was all I would install on customers computers, unless they specifically requested something else. Not that I liked Nortons either, it required so many resources that slower computers would almost stop when it was running.

About a week ago I got fed up with Nortons and finally downloaded AVG antivirus (freeware) and have been VERY pleasedwith the results. My personal computer is an old 600mhz that I built from parts, and AVG allows me to continue on doing whatever I'm working on without much of a slow down at all.

I also quit using IE. I now use Firefox and have had much less problem with adware, spyware and malware. Infact, my msn email seldom gets a spam email anymore, whereas with IE I was getting 40 or 50 everytime I checked email.

The worst problem I found with Firefox was getting it set for my preferences. Once I figured that out, it's been a joy to use, even with my slow dialup.

IHTH,

I know people that use the "FreeWare" systems.
Some have good luck... Some don't...

I run several enterprise level networks, been through the crippling effects of anything from Norton and a couple
of the other HI-Line antivus systems. Even ran Panda for a while.

The sad state of things is that Freeware leaks and is not always really as effective as it may look and feel.
Kinda like you get what you pay for in some ways.

My mistake was that I let McAfee do an upgrade to my licensed copy on my home computers. They sent all the garbage
known as "Security Center" hidden in the update. This has basically P*******d me off as now I have stuff being installed
and removed without my permission.

I have complained and even threatened them to no avail.

Luckily my Enterprise networks use a version that doesn't have the extra garbage.. ( so far ...)

Fussy in Florida.... dave..

Have no idea what is causing the problems, but we upgraded to IE7 about 1 week ago and have seen no change in operation of this BB. I seem to stay logged in on both our home computer (IE7) and on our laptop (?older IE version).  Who know what goes on out there in Cyber Space???   Jack

Well as of the beginning of this week I had to do a complete recover on my laptop. As it is I have NO virus protection and now that I think about it, I never did before the recover szo I don't think that's the problem. Cookies should be at a minumum because of the recover and I still have no idea what Richard is talking about. I am and have been only logging in under ONE name at a time and that is ACE. Like I said, it wouldn't let me log in under Foolsgold so how could I log into two at once?

I'll just deal with it on this end. It's not a big problem other than it's different than what it says. If it says log in FOREVER and then every time you enter you have to re-log in, then to me that's not forever!

No Kidding? Like I didn't know how to look up my own profile and everything else on this board! What I DON'T understand is why does it work sometimes and sometimes not? You can see others are having similar problems so it isn't JUST me!

I have cleared all the cookies there are to be cleared per suggestions and it still works differently than before! Jack mentioned he has upgraded to IE7. I'm still using firefocks. (no ecks key)

LOL I'll have one by then! It's a long story but to be short, BUD tried to email Richard and his nails got to it and pulled it off and I guess it looked tasty so when I got home it, along with the shift, Z, S, D, and C keys were long gone! I have so far been able to replace all but the ecks but I have one coming!

No Kidding? Like I didn't know how to look up my own profile and everything else on this board! Ace

ACE, please forgive me if you feel I questioned your computer skills. I never intended that. I based my response on your comment on a previous post:
I still have no idea what Richard is talking about. I am and have been only logging in under ONE name at a time and that is ACE. Like I said, it wouldn't let me log in under Foolsgold so how could I log into two at once?

My post confirmed that you actually have posted under both names in the past few days. My recommendation is still that you try canceling one of the registrations and see if that helps. Otherwise, Phil will probably have to get involved to try and fix it.
 
Also, please remember that the board is for the benefit of the several hundred members and any posts made are to help inform anybody about the different possibilities of the board or anything else. When you ask for help on the board then you will surely get some responses that contain information that you already know and hopefully some information that you do not. All responses are welcomed as it helps inform everybody.

I suspect that many of the members, especially new ones, do not know all the ins and outs of the board. For example one of the long time members, who I suspect is pretty computer savvy, recently asked help in how to retrieve his personal messages.

If you have a personal problem with me, then I request you take it off the board to an instant message or email.
