BF,

Each time you get in? Do you mean after logging out? If so, that is normal... login/logout/login.

Hi, BF. I had to log in twice. Once when I connected to the once and then again when I went to write a reply to your post. You are right in your response to Aline. We did have an automatic login when first opening up the previous version. I hope it comes back.

About the automatic login...

I'm thinking that with the old board, you gals "originally" signed in, bookmarked the page, and always came back from that page - like coming in through the back door. And that leads me to think you never clear your cache/cookies, which is bad. Your personal info is attached to cookies and should be cleared daily after each session.

In the old forum, I would login/logout, which is more secure. Maybe they new about it and fixed it.

CC, not sure why you are having to log in twice. Obviously a glitch. Hopefully, will be fixed soon.

Hi, Aline.

Yes, when I clicked "GardenTalk" on my favorites list it would open automatically to the list of forums. Then it would show the login box with my old name "The Closet Canuck" in one line and my password on the next as ******. All I had to do was hit "Enter." Now, I have to type in e-mail address and pass word and hit enter. Then, if I want to post a message I have to type in e-mail address and password and hit enter again.

Maybe this is my punishment for complaining. LOL LOL LOL

Yep

On the old patio, I keep a post to me and used that to enter. Twas easy

But the last forum OTGF I did not get posts in my email

The check box would not stay

I see the same thing is happening here

I check box it will not stay to allow me to get posts in my emails as,""" Notify me when a reply is posted""

If it did I would save it and I be getting in the "Back" door
