Although the forum login remembers my login details, it doesn't log me in automatically (like most) and I still have to click on the login button. I don't see an option to do so - is there a way?

Great forum to have - I hope it grows and grows!

It'll actually log you in automatically if you just click on something.  For example, if you click "Home" or just click the name of the forum, you'll be logged in automatically without having to click the login button first.

Then you have a cookie monster eating your cookies!  If you select "forever", all you have to do from that point forward is click the "login" button.  If that doesn't work, the issue is with your browser/system.

Hmmmm, just put WIN 7 on two days ago.  It may be an issue (it has several).

BTW-  QI FLIES in 7 compared to Vista.

I get automatic logon in XP at work, but not in my Vista 64 at home. Same as Seth, my username and password are there so the cookies are OK, but I have to click to log on. It may be a 64 bit thing.

I have a similar situation, both at home on Firefox: XP desktop I stay logged in, Vista Home edition laptop, I have to click the login button. No big deal though.

All of a sudden (today) when I get to the forum I am logged in.  Go figure.  May have been something in an OS update.

Click the Logout tab which is just below the top title panel.
Next, before you click Login again at the top of the page, click the Session Length drop-down and set the minimum time (1 hour).
Providing you don't come back the the forum within an hour, then you should have to login once again.
This is probably not quite you want, but hopefully near enough.  Wink

I have/had 3 different systems running here; XP, Vista and W7, and only W7 will log me in automatically. I have to click to log in.
I can browse without logging in, but cannot post or see the Studio category.
