Remember Me on signing in

Perhaps I am confused as to what "remember me" is supposed to do, but when I click the remember me box when I sign in, I still have to enter my username/password the next time I visit the site. Can somebody explain what is happening.

I've got the Escape forum set as "Home" in my browser. The time I spend in this forum now far exceeds the time I spend on Facebook, and provides a big upgrade in quality.

My reflex is to hit the "Like" button after I read a particularly useful comment here, but there isn't one.

The 'remember me' check box means that vbulletin will store a cookie on your browser that is used to log you in whenever you visit the site.

Depending on your browser and your security settings, this sometimes works and sometimes not. There are too many variables to say why it isn't working in your particular case. So, I'd suggest installing another browser (I use Chrome) and try the remember me function with that.

The remember me does not work on my iPad. I have to log in each time. My PC based desktop will remember.

I believe this is something new. Perhaps a recent board update.

Since you're using an iPad, I assume you're using the built-in Safari browser. If so, you can try this:

'Settings', 'Safari', 'General', 'Autofill', 'Names and Passwords', 'On'.

Depending on how Safari handles the site settings, it may work, and it may not.

It's my iPhone that keeps being forgotten, so the fact that it happens with an iPad now makes sense. Not sure if my desktop dies the same thing because I don't use it as much as the phone.

This is usually a cookie problem.

If you are having problems logging in, staying logged in, getting logged out at page changes or seeing extra ads or content ads (underlined text with ad links) you are getting logged out when you change pages on the site.

Steps to fix this issue (not all may be needed):

Empty your temp internet files (browsing history),
Delete the Escape cookies,
Clear your cache,
Log out.
Log back in and click the “Remember Me” button.

If you are still having trouble, you may need to specifically enable cookie exchange with the forum in your browser settings or set your system security setting to med-high.

You may need to close your browser or reboot your computer.

I should have posted sooner, but what I had to do was to tell the iPhone to "remember this password." Ever since then, the phone logs me in rather quickly. Probl solved!
