It's back to forgetting my login each time I close. No exceptions.


It has also stopped jumping to the first unread post, it's just going to the top of the thread, even if I click the new post icon. This problem is intermittent.

Mobile and desktop both the same 2 issues.

We're looking into it.

Some of this was caused by the switch to the secure HTTPS protocol. You might try clearing cookies and logging back in.

Still not saving logins, everything else appears good though.

I may have figured out how to fix the login issue.

Assuming you are following a saved link/favorite/bookmark to access the forums, you need to add https:// in front of the address (don't forget the S, http alone doesn't fix it, it must be https).

So my original link was saved as [ forum.pei.org/search.php?search_id=newposts ].

Since I changed my saved link to [ https://forum.pei.org/search.php?search_id=newposts ] the login has now remained saved for 2 full days without exception.

This worked for me. I had cleared cookies but was using an old bookmark. Thanks!

Well that was fun while it lasted (for a few days), the last three or so days I have been back to having to log back in every session.
