Automatic login?

by luxx / October 31, 2004 9:21 PM PST

Is there anyway (cookies or something) to make the forums recognise me? Member login should be automatic.

I don't like to type my email and password each time!

Hi luxx,

I too would like to see something better to eliminate the extra steps and hassle. Unlike you my system (XP Pro SP-2) does auto fill the login page but I still must login each time. Maybe the CNet will make this happen in a future update. I hope so!
