does anyone else have problems with constantly being logged out of the forum? I checked my cookies and everything seems fine, is this something that just happens to me?

Yeah, it depends on where I'm logged in. At home, on regular wifi, I get logged out after about half an hour.

If I'm on my iPhone, using the Cloud at the pub or in a café, I remain logged into the forum for no more than about 10 seconds. I have to copy any posts I write, hit submit, log back in, at which point my post is erased, paste the copied one and submit again. If I can do that in 10-15 seconds, it'll get through.

Will alert dugpa to see if this can be fixed. Thanks!

Not sure if it can be fixed. If it is your ISP changing IP Addresses then there is nothing we can do on our side. If it is the board software we are due for an upgrade in several weeks. It may or may not fix the problem but it's the best we can do.

Ah, it's all right. Just letting you know. I'm fine. When I think how things worked ten years ago, there's little to complain about now!! :)

Have you tried to check the "Remember me" box when logging in?

I've had the same problem in lots of different discussion boards and checking that (or similar) box has always fixed it for me.

Yes, i've tried the Remember Me option. Also, my IP isn't changing often. Not sure why this keeps happening.

It looks like there are 13 different IPs that your ISP is setting for you. I did a little research and it looks like this is the cause.

Check out this article as there are a few things they suggest but ultimately it appears that the IP is getting changed behind the scenes.
