      Hello Chaps

      Unlike other boards, I don't seem to get a "remembered" username and password filled-in when I arrive - using Firefox - and have to type in my username and password every time, rather just needing to click on a "Submit" button, or even staying logged in between visits. Am I doing something wrong - like arriving at the wrong page, or is it like this for everyone?

      Hi

      if you go to our homepage about halfway down left hand side there is a logon box.

      Put your username and password in there and make sure there is a tick in the box to remember your details

      voila

      OK - I see what it is now. If you use the "Username" and "star-filled" boxes in the yellow strip at the top of the opening page for http://www.skyuser.co.uk, you don't get remembered or stay logged in for the next visit.

      But when I use the sidebar entry fields, where there is a "remember me" box, it does keep me logged in, but Firefox hasn't asked me if I want it to remember my username and password when I do need to enter them if I actually "Log out". I get a list of possible usernames, but no password is filled in when I choose the right one for here. Oh well.

      i forgot welcome to the site btw :-)

      strange as i use firefox and never have that trouble, i think if you use the top one to login like you say, thats where the problem lies.

      I will look into it for you later as i am at work now (dont tell the boss)

      It is the one at the top, I thought the same thing at first, I even put a request in for it as a feature... Then I found it and edited my post sharpish

      The forum seems to time out and log me out then I have to go back to the main page to log on. When you are reading some threads and want to rely only to be shown that your logged out is a royal PITA

      Well as people have obviously seen, i spend hours on here, and have never once been logged out - am i missing out on this?

      @ anniebrion

      What browser are you using? and are you logging in on the portal home page on the left hand side or the top login.

      Hopefully if we can find the common denominator we can resolve
