Not sure if this is the right place, sorry if it isn't. I constantly get logged out moving from page to page. Not sure if this is a problem others are having but hoped to get it figured out. I am viewing on a Macbook, not sure if it is a setting on my part or something to do with the site.

Thank You
Patrick

I'm by no means an expert on the function of this site, but I know I had to check 'keep me logged in' under my log in information to keep this from happening on my end, saves me a lot of time

Do you have cookies enabled?
If you have cookies disabled, when you leave a page, the cookie probably thinks you have left.

Did you check the box labeled keep me logged in, as Destiny suggested earlier?

As you are logging in, yes. In my information... I looked there and couldn't find a place in the settings so not sure if I am missing something there.

One possible interpretation of what you are saying is: yes, you are checking the box and, at the same time, you cannot find the box to check. Therefore, it is still possible that you are not checking the box.

So, if you don't check that box then the behavior you are experiencing is exactly what should happen if you don't check the box.

Here is another possible interpretation of what you wrote: you had the problem in the past and it is probably because in the past you did not check that little box. And now you have checked the little box and you are currently testing to see if the problem reappears.

Yeah that first one, I added a screen shot of the box I click when logging in. If there is another box you are referring to I don't know where to find it. I still have problems when ever navigating the forum. If I change a page, go from one topic to another it logs me out, not every time but often. I can live with it, I know you probably have more important things to worry about. If I am the only one than fine, but figured if others are having the same problem it can be frustrating.

Thank You for your help

Can you please do a little experiment by deleting your cookies on safari? Right after you delete cookies, you will realize that it has automatically logged you out from permies and all other websites you were logged into. Log back in to permies with the "log me on automatically each visit" option selected, and tell me if that made some improvement.

What version of Safari?

Can you tell us more about your computer?

Is anybody else out there suffering from similar problems?

Patrick,

I think people are struggling to help you because they are not able to duplicate the problem and they're hoping that somebody else will.

I am not a safari user. I am not a Mac User.

I can tell you that the Forum software uses cookies to manage your stuff while you are using the Forum. Do you have a mode on your browser that makes it so that your access to the internet secretive? I know in some browsers it is called incognito mode. I have never used incognito mode, but my guess is that it does not allow cookies.

So if you set your browser to use the secret mode then you won't be able to stay logged in.

Is it possible that this mode is activated on your browser?

Long time Safari user, using 9.03. Haven't had this issue at all, so now I'm curious. That kind of behavior would be totally annoying.

Patrick, in your preferences under the Privacy tab, what does it look like? Here's mine. Not saying my settings are correct, just that if they are different, we might know something.
Also, what extensions, if any, are you running? If you've got anything unusual in there, you might try disabling them, seeing if the behavior changes.

I have fairly consistently, for months now, had this problem, but only when at my beloved's house. I have DSL through my phone line, she has satellite internet. I don't know if that means anything, but it is the only difference I can think of. I use Firefox, latest version.

I'm running Safari 9.0.3 and it occasionally happens but not all the time.

It usually happens when I swipe back to return to the last page viewed.
I'm using the old look forum and when it does happen, while swiping back, it brings me to the new look and logs me out.

Glenn, I am on satellite internet as well, don't know if that has anything to do with it or not.
