Why Won't It Remember Me?

Post by Juneberry »

So, I keep pressing the 'remember me' button, but every time I refresh after maybe an hour, it doesn't remember me anymore. Is this a bug or am I just not understanding what the remember me button does?

So I think I fixed this issue. The cookies were configured incorrectly. :V I had the same issue happen to me, I couldn't stay logged in but it seems to work on my end now. :) Does it work for you too June?

It stays logged in a bit longer, but I'm still not getting it to just permanently remember me like it works on most sites. >w<

So you get logged out after a while? Hmm... I'm going to make a topic on phpbb's support forum to see what the problem is. It's still working for me, which is odd. Maybe clearing the cookies for this site in your browser will fix the issue? I could possibly try logging out all members via the admin cp. I'm going to do that real quick, let me know if that fixes it. :)

I won't know for a while if it keeps me in or not. :'D If you could teach me how to clear the cookies for the site to try that, let me know.

Sure I can help with that! Which browser are you using? Here's a few guides on how to clear your cookies, first with Chrome:
