I didn’t say that was your issue, just that it will cause it. Not sure why many are having issues. My Apple products are working correctly.

Hmmm. Not sure. It’s something Charles will have to check into.

I described my problem with it (Windows 10 + Chrome, two machines, plus a Chromebook) after the first major outage but before the last, including some steps at diagnostics. Still happening exactly the same way. If I close the browser tab, I have to log-on again. If I keep the forum open in a browser tab, after about two or three hours of inactivity it logs me off.

It isn't a massive problem, but I do find myself visiting the forum much less often because of it. I'm not a fan of password management systems, and I always use very strong passwords, and never the same password twice. So it is a bit of a pain having to reauthenticate constantly. But on the bright side, the forum is working!

Similar issue here. I used to login completely automatically on my Mac. Now, I have to click in the username box. At this point my Mac remembers my userID and PW. I just have to click again. Not a big problem.
My iPhone is a different story. I have to manually put in the user name and PW. As I use complex PWs with upper and lower case characters, numbers, and special characters, it can be a pain in the keister. So I just don't check the forum unless I'm at home on the laptop.

Not an expert but it may have something to do with whether you are accessing the site using http: instead of https:.

Mojo 84,
I think you broke the code. I deleted my old favorite bookmark and reloaded with the https address and it seems to be working. Have tried closing and reopening 3 times and seems ok

I think he is on to something there. My bookmark for the site uses https and I have not had any problems with being logged out.

MOJO- You're a genius! I'd make you an officer in this man's army if it weren't such a waste of a good enlisted man...

Seriously- I did that and it worked. Thanks for figuring it out.

Yep, that did it for me too. It looks like Charles needs some kind of URL redirection script, maybe in the .htaccess file.

Man; I never even thought of that. I'm just too used to sites forcing SSL redirect if they have a certificate, which most do nowadays. I just thought TXCHL didn't have a cert so never tried it. :???:

I'm kinda betting it remembers me next time I come back.

Well, I don't know about the technical details, but changing my bookmark to "https" from "http" worked for me, too. Thanks!
