    Question why won't the forum "remember me"?

    Why is it that I can put a check in the box next to Remember me? when I am signing in, but everytime I come back here, I have to enter my user name again?

    Could be a couple of things. Do you have your computer set to accept cookies? Have you recently cleared your cookies/cache from your computer? If you have "selective" cookies, have you whitelisted TOH . com, adviceTOH . com, and I think there's a third associated site?

    most likely its you cookie settings, you can set them to clear too often.
    HOPE THIS IS HELPFUL!

    that's not something I ever fool around with. I have other forums that I visit that "remember me". I just don't understand why those do and this one doesn't. And, one of the others is also powered by V Bulletin.

    I just logged out and came back to post this. I had never paid attention before, but after I picked "log out", it asked me if I was sure...I said yes and then a message appeared that said this...

    vBulletin message
    All cookies cleared!

    Is that why the discussion board doesn't remember me? How do I correct this issue? Any advice would be appreciated.

    If you're logging out at the end of your visit, then you'll have to log in when you come back.

    I guess I wasn't clear. Yes, I do log out, as I do on other forums. The difference is that on those other forums, when I go back to visit, my username & password are already in the appropriate boxes and I just have to click on "log in". On TOH, I have to retype in the boxes.

    OK, I just did a little bit of testing. You are correct Spruce. If I "log out" I have to retype my info. I went to the other forum that I am a member of that is also powered by vBulletin and realized that what was happening there was that I was not 'logging out'. I was only closing the page. That's my mistake.....wasn't paying attention to detail.

    New question....if I don't "log out", does it appear that I am ****** (green dot next to name) at all times? If you don't know, just let me know if there is a green dot next to my name when you read this. It is now 7:35 am and I am about to leave to go work on my house. I will be gone all day. Instead of logging out, I will just close firefox.
