This forum is a very useful place for insight into the pakistani tech world. Its a great place to find information on the ISP's in the country and all that lovely stuff. The problem I have with the forum is that the cookie doesnt last long enough :( I visit about once a day and each time im forced to log back in.

Kindly please extend the life of the cookies so that we dont have to keep relogging in :D Thanks alot.

P.S I dont see a remember me box if it exists.

Same here, its been more than a month since i installed this windows on my system, I dont think i’ve ever been asked to login again… Skrinner, the problem is in your settings, make sure your browser accepts cookies.

May be firewall blocking some cookies or cleaning periodically.

You're probably not entering the www. before the address because when i type the address without the www. i Have to login again.. But if i visit with the www. it works fine and i am logged in.

There is a remember me box. The cookie does work, I never have to login.

There is a issue with the forum software, where if you login at www.wp and than visit the site without typing in the www’s the site can’t find the cookie and u have to relogin. This has been fixed in the latest version, but it will be released on june 1st, so the cookie issue should be fixed for good than.

Yes, though generally the website figures it out, as you can test on just about any mainstream site.


#17

yep it is a browser problem mainly in firefox i too have this probelm, the browser remember my name and password but doesnot log me in automatically and it happens with all the sites i have checked all the settings but all are fine dont know what is the problem. so reinstalling the browser might help.


#18

Ah its probably the www problem. I'm one of those lazy guys that dont type in WWW. Ill give it another try.

And no its not CCleaner or my browser else id be signed out of everywhere. Ill check it with WWW


#19

Could a change in ip at user's end cause this issue?
