Remember Me Function Answered

Hello out there, at first please forgive me for my bad english. I have a problem with the account login. When i try to login the current page accept my login and display my account name. But if i navigate to other pages or use the "right-clickt open in new tab" option in my browser the new page dont know me and i need to login again. Also, my account name displayed with false characters. The same occured when i check the "Remember?" box during the login process. Maybe the german characters in my account name create these errors. Maybe your database dont support these characters, you can use UTF8 encoding to handle these problems. But what i want now: Can someone change my account name from to "RobertRoemer", please. Thanks.

I do not think the umlaut is causing this issue although I will be happy to change your account name anyway (let me know if you still want this). But have you verified that your browser is configured to accept cookies from Instructables.com? We do use cookies to check whether a user is logged in or not and if your browser doesn't accept them, we will think you are not logged in every time as you describe.

Good morning, Thank you for your reply. I have already created a new account with the name RobertRoemer. Cookies were accepted and it works now. I think it was really the umlaut. If you have the permissions, please delete my old account. Thanks again, Sincerely, Robert Römer

I have deleted your old account. Sorry for the difficulty! (I don't think it was the umlaut because I've seen a similar problem for one or two users with ASCII only names... I have some ideas for what is going on but haven't completely figured it out yet.)

I believe the umlaut is causing an issue.

I signed up a user named "۞", and I can't log in. Try for yourself, the password is 6 of those characters. (If instructables messes with the encoding, and it does not display, its 06DE.)

Oops, nevermind. I was able to login correctly, & I don't appear to be having the trouble Robert is...
