Problems staying logged in....

I'm having to re-enter my user name and password every time I come to the site,
Checking the "remember me" box doesn't seem to help, either.

Anyone else having this problem?

Silly question: do you have cookies disabled? "Remember me" requires a cookie. If you do have cookies enabled, try clearing them out.

What browser are you using?

My cookies are enabled, but I'm using an old
browser (Netscape 7.0).

At least now the password manager in my browser seems to be entering my password and user name in the
boxes automatically, so I don't have to type them in manually anymore.
No biggie. :)

I had that problem too. I logged in about 5 times before I stayed logged in. But it's OK now.

Anyone else having this problem? This is something I haven't experienced myself, so it's hard to diagnose.

Can you guys give me as many details as possible regarding what you're seeing? Browser/OS, error message, etc.

Thanks.

I'm having the same problems in IE and firefox. Here is what I see when I open ot.com:

Cookies are enabled. I haven't changed any of my internet settings since ot switched forums.

OK I've tried this myself in Firefox and I am also having this issue. Usually I don't ever close my browser so I hadn't noticed this before.

If I log in with Firefox, making sure "remember me" is checked, I will stay logged in even if I close a tab and then open a new one to OT.com. But if I close the browser and come back, I am logged out again. I am using FF 2.0.0.12 and XP SP2.

I pulled up the cookies for OT.com, but I'm not really sure what I'm looking at. Would any of that information help Jay?

Edit: I get the exact same results using IE 7.0.5730.13.

Apparently, I never closed my browser while testing, because once I did, I was logged out also despite selecting "remember me."

I looked around a bit and found a really dumb programming error that would cause this behavior. Basically, selecting "remember me" wasn't actually doing anything because it wasn't passing a value to the login script.

I changed the code, tested it out, and now I stay logged in even after closing my browser and reopening it. Please verify that it works for you also.
