clear your cookies - that should be a one time fix for the issue

I sure hope this works. I just lost like two years of logins oon every site I visit to fix this one. It will be worth it if it works. I spend the bulk of my online time here.

No, should I. I don't get much spam. I have a Mac so most spyware does not work. I have yet to get a virus. My PC gets cleared regularly though for different reasons.

You could have cleared just the DVDTalk ones, you know?

Your other logins would have been fine

** Nevermind - I retract what I previously posted - I found a simple way to sort them out and delete them one at a time in Safari. ** (OOPS)

On a positive note thus far it seems to have cured my problem. Thank God - I had loged in here 20 times in two days.

I was having this problem. Cleared my cookies. Seemed to fix the problem. Came back a couple hours later and was logged out again. Rarely had this problem before.

FireFox 1.0

I am having the same problem also in Firefox 1.0 and Internet Explorer 6.0 SP2 Windows XP Pro SP2. Didn't have this issue in the "previous" version.

I do notice that the same thing happens at http://forums.2005fordmustang.com They are using the same vBulletin V. 3.0.3

I'm having this issue with firefox 1.0 as well. I've deleted all dvdtalk related cookies (at least those that were named so) and it still makes me log in. I'd prefer not to delete all cookies if it is possible.

Depends on your browser. With Firefox and Mozilla, it's easy. You can manage your cookies from within the browser itself. With IE, you need to use Windows Explorer, set to show hidden files and folders, and navigate to the folder containing your cookies, then find the DVD Talk cookies in the list, and delete them as you would any other file.

[edit]
Oh, and I forgot to add that, curiously enough, after a few hours away from my PC, I was again forced to log in to DVD Talk in Mozilla. No problem with IE, apparently. The puzzling thing is that I frequent a number of vBulletin forums, some of which are running 3.0.3, and none of them have this problem.

I'm getting the same problem. Everytime I come back to the site I'm logged out. Tried clearing cookies and that didn't do anything.

I don't think its our browsers. I use Netscape 7.2 as well as Explorer. If I close the browser and reopen a short time later I am still logged it.

If I shut it down for an extended period i.e. over night, or for several hours, I have to log back in.

Clearing cookies and cache have no bearing what-so-ever.

(Windows XP, NO service pack 2)

This is a real pain!

As you can from a couple of posts above I was in this morning. I never closed my browser but when I returned about five hours later I was no longer logged in.

I have pretty much tried each combination of keeping/deleting cookies, keeping/emptying my cache and two different browsers.

This isn't our browsers, I feel this is in the software used to run the site and its kinda annoying. I have so many different passwords for so many sites online, I prefer to let my password manager keep track of them. However on this site, and only on this site since the change, it will not recognize it needs to cough one up.

I can't log in at all with AOL 9.0. I get the 'redirect' screen, then goes back to 'you can't post here, you're not logged in.'

I can get logged on with IE 6.0.28

I cleared my dvdtalk cookies, so I'll see if I stay signed in, but still can't get in on AOL.

If you clear your cookies after you leave this site, you'll definately be logged out. I tried several variations and when I cleared the cookies, I was out.

Today I could stay logged in even after I closed my browser as long as I didn't clear my cookies. Clearing the cache had no effect.

This site still does not communicate with my paqssword manager.
