Login difficulties

Postby Paul Atkins » Thu Aug 10, 2017 11:00 am

Every time I "successfully" login I put a ✔️In the box To be loged in every time. Sometimes the next day I'm unable to enter the forum without my username/Password. Other times it can be a week or so and I'm straight in. ????? It's a real mystery to me. Perhaps someone can explain why this happens. Then again maybe not.

I get exactly the same thing. Drives me mad.
Steve or Ian - can you have a look at it please.

Hard to define, I've never had that problem, click on site and I'm straight in. Will need to log in if you clear browsing history or cache.

Remembering usernames and passwords are all down to the details being stored in your browser history and password key chains, rather than the forum. Sorry can't offer more advice than that, but sometimes clearing history etc will work, but this comes with a cost of you losing all your remembered passwords and usernames. Other possible cause is, some browsers will think a site name with and without the www as separate sites needing separate login details.

I use many motorcycle and other websites and after completing the full registration criteria and stating to be logged on automatically have never had a problem. This BHR site is unfit for purpose as yet again I've asked to be logged on automatically and yet again it's forcing me to enter my username and password. Time and time again? Come on "Someone" who sets this website up get your act together. This is NOT ON. I notice I'm not the only one who has this extremely annoying problem. So then, just get it sorted "PLEASE" Paul Atkins

Paul, it seems you and I are sharing some similar difficulties with logging on to the forum. I don't know what device you are using but I only have problems when trying to log on with my iPhone and iPad which suggests it's a problem with the fruit flavoured devices more than the forum itself.
I've set up an auto save password in the predictive text bar which, although isn't ideal, does prevent me having to type the whole thing out each time.
Try this and see if it works for you.
