Hi - this used to work fine, and works with every other login I’ve got (apart from banks obviously) - but, of late, even if I’ve been in, a couple of days later, I have to go through the LOGIN process yet again - which is quite slow on this site.
My experience on Choice.com.au is that every day or few I have to login again. I have to type in my email each time but the password step fills in automatically; it is a leisurely login process on the Choice backend.
There were a few weeks it kept me logged in, then for a time it at least remembered my email to make the login that bit easier. I doubt this is about cookies although they are most often what is happening in the general case.
Since ‘operation’ is constant across Firefox and Edge, both with different add-ons I am rightly or wrongly discounting add-ons in my main browser Firefox, with no add-ons in Edge.
In contrast my login status on the Community keeps me logged in as expected.
It could be interference with my AVs but one would think both Choice.com.au and Choice.Community would be using the same validation code. Are they?
Since the System update I’ve been sometimes logged-out of the forum for no apparent reason. Previously it would happen only when I cleared History, now it’s fine with that, but I can’t tell what triggers it.
It happened again in the last hour and just when I was getting ready to login to write this, it was logged-in as if by magic!
Perhaps @BrendanMays or @jhook could pass this change in site behaviour, logging people out when it didn’t before, on to the relevant area?
Here’s a new wrinkle. On the top right of the bar it says “Hello”. If I click on it my options are My Account Details or Log Out. If I click on My Account Details, I am presented with a log in box.
If I do a search, I am asked to log in. So am I logged in or not?
When I logged out and back in, things returned to normal.
It would seem that there is a glitch in the system.
Probably your device / your browser / your settings. Certainly my browser shows pages in this forum by the hundreds. Is showing now, even for recently accessed pages, and has always shown. So many that I manually purge them out.
Mine did too, I hesitated to ‘delete’ because that would log me out of the forum.
I recently updated my browser and Choice has had a System update as well. As this is the only website which doesn’t register in ‘History’, I’m wondering
