    Default How to keep it logged in and not lose your writing.

    To Usingenglish administrator and staff:


    1°) For entering this site you need to log in.

    2°) Once you are logged in, you can read, post a thread or make comments (if allowed)

    3°) Whenever I am writing a thread I lose the information when I finish, It appears a box asking me to log in again, so before submitting the thread I have to make a copy of it, log in again and paste it.

    4°) Maybe this happens to some other members.

    5°) I would like to know if once I have been logged in, there is a way to keep me logged in until I decide to log out


    Regards.

    Default Re: How to keep it logged in and not lose your writing.

    Hi:

    I am a windows user and I have suffered from the same problem as you: if you take too long to compose your reply, the system logs you out, and therefore does not allow you to post it. I am virtually certain that this system behaviour is justified on the basis of what the site can afford to spend on bandwidth.

    Here's my workaround. When you get the "you are not logged in" message, cut the entire text of your response. Then open a new tab or window and restart usingenglish.com and log in. Return to the thread you were trying to respond to, click reply, and paste, then post.

    Underneath the box to log in, there is a box marked Remember Me- check this box and you will not be logged out.

    I believe it's to do with expiring cookies. If you choose Remember Me, the cookies will expire when you log out. If you don't then you will be logged out periodically.

    I have the box checked and am never logged out. I also whitelisted cookies from the site so they don't get deleted from my browser.
