FYI: Remember me check box is back now...

and it actually works.

If you check the Remember Me box when logging in you will automatically be logged back in the next time you visit the forums.

The only time it will NOT remember you is if you:

Delete your system cookies or Log out manually.

Enjoy!

I just tried it again and it's weird cause it says "Welcome Back Rod" when I go to the sign in page but it still makes me put my e-mail and password in ever time even though I check the box. It's not a big deal to me because I never sign out and usually have a forum window open 24/7 but it's still not working correctly yet. BTW, I also have IE6 XP SP2 Marcia. Plain

Booted up this AM
by MarciaB / November 6, 2004 9:39 PM PST

clicked on my CNET shortcut, came directly to Forum Feedback - was still logged on Happy

Will need to occasionally re-enter login info as I clean out all temp files about 1 X mo. as a rule; but that also helps me to remember various passwords and such.

Marcia made a good point Mark. I also had to sign in again today even though I've had the box checked BUT after reading Marcia's post from this morning, I added the Virus and Security's Forum to my favorites because that's where I spend most of my time instead of the sign-in page, which I had on favorites before and I can close up IE and then open it and go directly to that Forum and I didn't have to sign in. I will try it again tomorrow morning and see what happens but I think it will work that way for us. It's worth a try anyway. Grin

Make sure you don't manually log out. If manually log out it will delete the cookie and not remember you.

What page do you enter CNET at Mark? I found out today and as long as I enter into one of the Forums, instead of the log-in page, I'm signed in. I have not tried rebooting to see what happens but I have closed up IE numerous times today and if I went to the sign-in page, I had to sign in but if I went right to the Virus and Securities forum, I was already signed in without actually signing in if you follow my drift LOL. The true test will be if I shut down and come back on but I don't plan on doing that for another day or so.

''Check'' 'ur Cookies when login required.
by Cursorcowboy / November 16, 2004 12:22 AM PST

Win98FE, MSIEv5.02SP2

For sure, there are utilities which users install or options set in utilities used which are going to delete Cookies. One which does this with no rhyme or reason is MailWasher Pro. Of course I use it as follows but the anomaly is that the Cookie doesn't disappear until the second day, next day accessing the forum(s) == no proglem:

1. Download only -- I do not like all the bells and whistles of the entire program -- the autoexecuting "12-Wash" utility listed in the "Index" near the bottom of this page -- a free!1.5MB file.

2. When this utility is installed and executed, you'll see the tab "IE, IE, AOL" (click to see a screen shot here) but when clicked in the utility, it give you the option to delete "cookies" among other things along with an "Except" button that allows you to select those to keep and for which they are subsequently written to the system's registry and do not change unless you do so:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\12Ghosts\Wash CookiesToKeep(three-digit number)

3. Either create a batch file to start on boot with the two lines below and placed in the Startup folder or place the first line only in the Autoexec.bat file to purge cookies (the drive and path are determined by you):

@<drive> \ <path> \12wash.exe /silent /washall
@exit

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
