Option to “Stay Logged In”

Mark Adle | Posted in General Questions on

Is there a way you can incorporate a “stayed logged in” feature so I don’t have to manually log in each time I access the website?

    Hi Mark,

    I will send your idea to our developers and see if this is an easy enough thing to do. However, I'm not sure why, but I don't have to log in each time I open my browser. It may have to do with your settings. For one thing, if your browser is clearing your history after each session, you will always have to log in (even with a stay logged in feature, I believe). There may be other settings to consider as well. If I learn any more about this, I'll report back.

      Thanks for your quick reply, Brian.

      I seem to have this issue the most in Safari for iOS. I’m using the standard browser, not private or incognito. Even in chrome or edge browser I still have to log in each session.

      Let me know if you find anything about it. Great site and resource center.

    I could not agree more. I use Chrome and I have to log in each time I visit the site. I visit plenty of websites where I am able to stay logged in. I know it's a minor feature, but it bothers me every time I visit the site.

      I use Chrome and don't have any issues - Im always logged in. Check your settings?

        Are you using mobile or desktop?

        1. G D | | #7

          MacBook Air. If you allow Chrome to remember your user and password you should be fine.

    I also have to log-in every time... using chrome. Never bothered look too deep into settings.

    While we're talking about technical site issues:
    It would be nice to be able to get notifications on threads. It appears the only way to currently do this is to actually post something, then check the box upon posting? Can it be done if you want to follow but haven't posted anything?

    Thanks for the site feedback everyone. Our developers are aware of both the issues raised and have them on a "to do" or at least a "to consider" list. We have a small team, and I was told that these cannot be priority issues right now, but they are possible future upgrades.

      Thanks Brian. Never enough time to do everything we want. I can see how these wouldn't top a priority list.
      My to-do lists have become near biblical in length. Only the top couple get much attention at a given time. GBA steals some of my time from that list of course ;)

    Update:

    Not sure how recent you guys did the update, but on iPhone iOS Safari browser I now see the “Remember Me” option!!

    1st world problems are still problems, much appreciated.

    Thank you!!

      I guess we got that to the top of the to-do list. Thank you for the suggestion and to our developers for getting it done!
