To Clarify a point, I want to know if it is a function of the site to keep the user logged in or is this a function of the browser? Case in point is that on new access to the site I and other classmates need to reenter the User Name and Password even after checking the keep me logged in box on a previous log in. This may be a time sensitive thing but knowing the details would help.

I believe it is a browser function regarding how you've set cookies. If your browser is set to allow some cookies on your computer, the website can keep you logged in.
I may not be explaining this well, so I welcome anyone to chime in here.Very Happy

"Remember Me" makes the cookie never expire. note: this is a non-domain site.... if the person is a member of another non-domain site, they would overwrite their cookie each time they logged into the other one. Additionally, if the member logs out or if they have their browser set to kill cookies upon close, that it make it so that the person needs to log in again when they return.

Tim, I was aware of the information you shared prior to the post so your explanation was correct. I have not changed the original cookies so this would not be the problem.

Scott, I will revisit our site and see if issues exit but for now I am still not able to enter without renewing my log in even though I check "Remember me" and the other conditions do not apply to me.

Paul - what is your browser version number and OS? This may be an issue that is browser specific.

I mainly was just trying to clarify things and I was not just trying to report an issue. That is unless an issue did exist.

24 is beta, but don't think that's the problem. Look at your settings under Tools/Options. In particular make sure in Security you check Remember Passwords and for Privacy do not check Private Browsing mode.

Could be other settings that might affect this, but those are the 2 that pop up.

Like I mentioned the settings are not an issue. No real problem exist. I was mainly confirming my understanding of the situation so I could more accurately inform other members who were asking.

That was true but it was only a statement used to explain what I was talking about. I was seeing the situation but I wanted extra input from other knowledgeable to confirm that the circumstance was in no way related to the class website.

OK! Once more it was fact finding only. Please lets leave this there we can go to other necessary things. I apologize for the need to clarify the issue. Please accept this in that spirit of friendship.
