Rob - I have never been able to get the site remember my username or password - It still doesn't - have to log in every time I boot up. - All my other web sites remembers them??
Once I put in the my username, it will remember the password.

What is weird - all my other web sites remember my username and pasword if I let them - On the BBI site everytime I start the computer the BBI site doesn't - but, if I type in my username, some times it remembers the password????

I was having problems similar to those reported here. But after I deleted the cookies on my machine, as Rob suggested, everything seemed to start behaving. The site remembered me this morning and let me upload a photo... and will hopefully let me post this message. Keeping fingers crossed.

Just tried it and worked fine (IE8) after I saw the "remember me" check box sitting empty and fixed that.

I hesitate to delete cookies since I have "remember me" cookies for other sites and would likely delete them as well...

With the IE8 you can keep the remember me stuff And get rid of cookies..

I cleaned out all of my stuff so I have to log in everywhere and am logging in every time I come here.. Reboot and all.. I don't mind the log in though.. Sometimes this log in stuff takes a few times before the remember thingy works.. Smile

I see some problems with others as well. I have tryed to Log In several times and I just gave up. Today I see the new page and it is looking very nice and so I tryed to log in again. No luck. So I signed up with a new User name and password. That worked now I'm on again. Things look nice so I hope I can still Log In in the future. (The old Sissy from the West End of the Island.) Laughing

Bearpaw44, try deleting your cookies, chances are you'll be able to log in with your old user name after you do. See this topic for instructions:

I think resetting my password may help with the login issue.. I'll let you know as I will try that today.. Can half the randoms be a loop for the home page winners?

This is how it works for me. If I check the "remember" box, the next time I return I see my avatar and it says I am logged in. But, I'm not totally logged in, because I can't see pictures when I go to the album. To correct that, I log out and then back in again. Two steps.

If I do not check the "remember" box, the next time I return I see no avatar and it says I am not logged in. But, the log in area is visible and displays my username and password with dots. I then log in without checking the "remember" box. One step. I can live with that.

So, the way it works for me right now. it is easier to not check the "remember" box to get logged in.

Sorry for such a long explaination.
