How come all of a sudden I have to log in everytime? Answered

It just started last week.
This is the only site that does it.
I have "remember me" checked.
WindowsXP, firefox 3.6.13, comodo 5.0.163652.1142
I allow cookies.

I have absolutely no idea what has changed.
Something logs me out every time I leave Instrucables.

This is a bug that has been documented in the forums. Canida says there that it will be fixed in the next release.

I didn't think of looking in the forums.


I'll give you the best answer.

But if it's not fixed in the next release, I'll take it back. LOL

You should always look at the bug reports before asking about a bug that's been around for a while. If you're the only one who's seen it, chances are its on your end. Otherwise, someone should have reported it. Also, that's the correct place to report a bug.

Yea, I know. I just didn't think about the bug reports this time.

But now if someone comes to ask the question they'll see that it's already been asked here and find the answer plus what the correct procedure is that should have been followed.

:-) You're young and idealistic, aren't you? I remember being like that once :-D

Unfortunately, because I'bles has put the "ask a question" text box on every page, people can type things in without ever going to a list of already asked questions :-(

Several of us have suggested having an automatic search for the quesiton text, and if something is found, present it to the user first. That's a non-trivial bit of development code, so it's not likely to happen. Oh, well....
