Why can't I stay logged in to this site without entering user and password info?

I click the "keep me logged in" option, but it logs me out anyway after a few hours or so. It worked well until a few months ago, and all the other sites that I visit keep me logged in. Any ideas on how to fix this? Thanks.

Not too long ago I was doing some work on the site related to the encrypted connection (https:smile:. Unfortunately some of the changes had unintended consequences that seems to be affecting some people who have had the site bookmarked.

Try this:

If you have the site bookmarked - delete that book mark.
Then, go here: https://www.britishcarforum.com/bcf/forum.php

Book mark the page again.

Log in and check the “Remember me” check box.

Hopefully things will work as they should.

Basil, Thanks, I did not have the site bookmarked. I now bookmarked the site, logged out, and logged back in. We will see if that makes a difference.

I looked at the cookies setting, and it is not blocking saving cookies. And I rarely close my browser or shut down the computer; maybe once or twice a month. I even went so far as to add this website in the browser as a site to remain logged into. I have not had to do that with any other websites. It made no difference; the next time I refreshed the page, I had to log in again. I am not having this issue with any other sites that I frequently visit. Oh well, it's not that difficult to log in each time.
