    when you sign in, there is a little check box after your name/password that says 'remember me' or something like that [i haven't had to re-sign in for a very long time]

    PICKLE I am having the same problem even with the remember me boxed checked, this has only started in the last week, was always logged in before. Must be a glitch in the system, I even have to sign in if I follow the link for an email notification of a new post in a thread I am sucribed too.
    It's always sunny here in Fl unless it's raining,LOL

    If you have your computer set to automatically clear cookies, you'll have to keep signing in.

    PROBLEMS LOGGIN IN OR STAYING LOGGED IN:

    Assuming the member is using the correct username and password combination, these two problems are related to the browsing software being used, the way the users are browsing the site, and their individual browser settings

    Based on a very good tip/reminder posted today by another member I recommend that you do the following before you attempt to login again:


    • Clear your web browser cache/delete temporary internet files
    • Clear your cookies
    • if you're coming onto the board with an old "shortcut" or "favorite bookmark", delete it, type www.quiltingboard.com into the address bar, or click on the link right here to go there, and make it a new internet shortcut or internet favorite bookmark.


    Supported browsers include:


    • Internet Explorer v7 and up
    • Firefox v6 and up (current version – 2)
    • Chrome (current version)
    • Safari v5 and up (current major version)


    I highly recommend you upgrade to the latest version of your browsing software if you have not already done so.

    When you get to the Quilting Board Home Page to sign in, please remember to wait until the page completes loading to log in. The fields have "hint" text in them as opposed to labels outside them to indicate what should be put in there. When the page has mostly loaded, there is code on the page that will dynamically remove that hint text from the field as soon as the user tries to enter their own text in there.

    However, if you try to click into the field immediately after it shows up, but while the page has not finished loading, it's possible you may submit the hint text along with your actual username or password, resulting in a failed log-in.

    Remember: both username and password are case-sensitive.
    Example: suppose my username is JoeSmith and my password is Abc123
    If I try to sign in as joesmith, it won’t work
    If I try to use the password abc123, it won’t work

    1) After entering the username and password, but before clicking the “Login” button, users can check the "Remember me" check box right next to the login button while logging in.

    2) Users may be using private browsing, in which case there are no cookies saved on to your computer. So, even if the user checked the "Remember me" box while using private browsing, the cookie will not be saved and therefore the site will require users to login.

    3) If the users manually clear the cookies of their browser or automatically delete the cookies once they close the browser, in either case, users will be required to login again.

    4) Lastly, if the user is inactive for 60 minutes then user will automatically be logged out (This does not seem to be the case, but something to remember).

    That will only happen to users who have *not* checked the "Remember Me" box.

    If they have checked the box, they will not be logged out due to an hour of inactivity. I think the next time they will be required to log in is 2-4 weeks later.
