I have never used the "remember me" option and always login with every visit. My login details are set down the bottom of the Index page where i just click login,how easy is that. I always Logout when i finish my session as well, i can't understand why you would want to be logged in permanently so can someone please explain this to me please. Craig

Hi Shane,

Is it normal for me to have to re-login every few weeks ? I'm sure its more frequent than monthly. I haven't been keeping dates.

Anyone else finding the same ?

Ian
Do you use multiple devices? I find whenever I switch between my desktop and laptop, it logs me out. I guess it's just one of the quirks in the forum software being used.

I think this may be a "generational" thing Craig. I also log on and off habitually. With me, it probably results from being overcautious after forgetting to log out of a secure site and being surprised when family members have asked should that site still be open. This is no longer a problem as most people have their own computer (or two) these days, but the habit persists.... not such a bad habit in some respects.

Shane - if this is too hard, just tell me to chase myself - but I have observed that sometimes members are not reading the dates of posts. Not always a problem - but with the classies it is - so any way of having any classies over 12months old vanish into the eather?

Done. They'll now vanish 1 year after publication.
