    Logging in

    I recently had to change my password. Now I have to log in repeatedly. Previously I didn't have to log in at all. (I was actually a little surprised I remembered my password, since I never had to use it.)

    Am I going to have to keep logging in after I've posted a few things? (That's the way it's been working out.)

    Re: Logging in

    Probably a silly question, but did you remember to tick the "Remember Me" box when you first logged in with your new password?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Logging in

    That is the key in most cases- in Europe, there are strict laws about storing personal information, including cookies. If you tick the Remember Me box, you allow cookies to be stored that remember you over time, and we don't have any access to personal information or credit cards, so there is little to be lost and convenience to be gained. If you don't tick the box, cookies will expire quickly.

    No, it's not a silly question. I didn't remember to do that at first. But I did check that box the last time I logged in and everything seems to be working as well as ever now.

    Re: Logging in

    I still see that pop up box (always when I want to post something). Maybe the programs on this device interfere with each other. Maybe if I buy one that can handle more data that will solve that problem.

    Re: Logging in

    Another silly question perhaps, but since this seems to be a cookie issue, have you tried clearing your cookies? Also, check that your browser is able to accept cookies.
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.

    I had a corrupted cookie once- it does happen.

    I prefer chocolate chip cookies.
