There may be something wrong with the algorithm as every time I visit the site I'm required to login with username and password, sort of a nuisance

Of course being a non-geek I readily allow that it couold be something I've done wrong. There are many hidden ways one can screw up without realizing it; in which case sorry for the inconvenience

Is your cache of cookies being cleared automatically, Dale?

Dale, how do you enter the site? I've noticed that if I enter through an email, the sign-in page appears, but I finally looked up one day and saw that it said "Welcome, consuelo", so I just clicked on Main Index and there I was.
Do you log out when you leave or do you just click on the top right x to close the window? If you log out, the command to remember you each visit is useless, don't. No need to unless you are on a computer that you share with a bunch of strangers.

Yes, exactly. Since the inauguration of the (wonderful) new board, I have had to log-in every time I access the home page. This is a minor inconvnience but, if I had a nickel for ever time I had to do it thus far, I would retire to a life of fully-funded geriatric sin.

Thanks fellas; I will look into the "welcome" and the "cookies" thing. Admin: If you're listening, I dearly love your site and I realize how tedious it is to alter the code, but when the next update is due, I hope you will consider doing something about "This page has expired" and the continual need to log in

dale, I have to tell you that you're whistling in the dark as far as getting some action from "admin". this forum is pretty much self-sustaining (other than the installation of the "New Improved UBB software, following which someone read the bug reports for about 3 weeks).

you know, I'm not sure I understand why Anu would pay for forum software, and then not have someone around to watch over it...

oh well.

I'm not sure I understand

"My ways are not your ways, and my thoughts are not your thoughts; but just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts."

~Isaiah 55:8-9.
