Forum "Remember me" not working

Tue Jan 30, 2018 2:22 pm

As per title. For the last few days I have to explicitly log in despite having ticked the "Remember me" box on each previous occasion.

Even when it works, it periodically gets me to log in again.

Hmm, I've not seen anything like that. I'll pass on to the web team.

I'm not having any problems with it, I'm in the UK, if that makes a difference. Do you clear cookies or history on exiting?

I never clear cookies. The force-login isn't that often.

I currently have 11 cookies from raspberrypi.org with a range of expiry dates on them from today and tomorrow all the way up to 2020.

I have been aware of the occasional forced explicit log-ins during the 6 years since I registered and visit almost every day but this is happening every time.

Edit. I haven't changed anything but it seems to be OK now!

I was just forced to log in again. I'd prefer the "remember me" to remember me until I clear cookies.

Is this on a Windows PC by any chance that's recently updated to 'Fall Creators' edition? I've got exactly the same problem across multiple forums ever since the update, using Chrome as my default browser. I suspect FC has screwed up Chrome in trying to insist on using Edge instead and I'm probably going to need to reinstall Chrome.
