When I first checked the forum this morning, I had to log in again, but now I'm staying logged in. I may have caused that by trying out being logged in on both the iPhone and the iMac.

I could have sworn I saw a delete key on my posts yesterday, but I don't now.

The "Keep Logged In" option is only for a specific amount of time. The default is 60 minutes. We changed it to 10 hours. After 10 hours you'll have to log in once more.

This can be changed. If 10 hours isn't enough let our Webmaster know what you want.

It should be a straight-forward issue and I don't see why it should be difficult to solve. I am also interested why Jay's configuration seems to work OK but some of us are having trouble. I never had auto log-in issues with the old BBS. Let's follow up on this.

Well, I suppose there might be security considerations I haven't thought of, but how about the maximum time allowed?

Yes, and it's now working correctly for me as well. Thanks to whoever fixed this!

FWIW, it appears that for the first time, I didn't have to log in this morning.
