    Default Has anything changed that would affect auto login?

    Hi, I normally have my computer remember my credentials for WWF and MWF so it logs in automatically when I open either. I normally visit WWF then use the link at the top of the page there to branch over to MWF when I have finished with WWF. Tonight, doing that dropped me into the MWF login page instead of automatically logging me in and taking me to the main MWF page. I had no issues automatically logging into WWF.

    My question is has there been any changes in the system since last night that might make recognition of the login cookie on my system not work, or has my system lost a file somewhere?

    Has anyone else had a similar experience?

    Thanks.

    Mal

    When were you last logged in ?
    I believe there was an upgrade on the forum in the last week.

    I was logged in the previous night, so a few days after the updates and other issues. I had no issues with WWF last night, immediately before branching to MWF, where I had the issue. Just now, I have had the same issue with WWF, but no issues with MWF.
    Will have to dig into my off line archives and check what my password is, did it last night to get back in here, was sure I could remember but three tries around the possible permutations all failed. Such is early onset dementia.

    EDIT: Memory is not as bad as I thought it was, looked up my password, and it was exactly as remembered from last night, then remembered that the old laptop currently has a dicky t key, so entering the password he first time would have been affected by that, and the other possible permutations would be wrong.
