Anyone else have issues randomly logging in? It doesn't necessarily seem to be browser dependent but I've not been able to log in until recently for a bit. The forum recognizes my user name and states that I've been successfully logged in but when it returns me to where I came from I'm not logged into my account. Is it a cookie thing?

I've had this issue with I.E., Chrome, FireFox, and Brave. I'm currently using Brave as my primary browser but I did finally get logged in with Chrome this time. Probably shouldn't have posted this in general but I was feeling lazy. Sorry!

Unfortunately, this board is buggy AF. I hate it. Can't login on my phone or iPad, plus plenty of other quirky behavior. The interface is awful, too.

If I had time, I would ditch it and find something better. I'm just too busy with work and life right now. 

Sorry, man... wish I could offer a fix for you.  Embarassed

No problem Tim. I was thinking maybe I was doing something incorrect or needed to clear browser history or something. Love the forums. I'll just have to keep logging in with different browsers at different times I guess... lol!

Also, didn't it used to leave you logged in for a while before making you log back in? Every time I visit I have to log in which is where the issue lies, well at least in my case.  Thanks for all you do man!

It should leave you logged in on a PC, Barn. Typically using any browser. That kinda makes me wonder if a setting may have changed on your computer (not accepting cookies, for example)? 

Thanks for the kudos. Wish I could be of more help with the login issues, my brutha.

I cannot stay logged in either but it's no big deal to simply log in again

I leave M&W open indefinitely using chrome on my iPad. One thing, I would not recommend using the browser back arrow to return to pages while using this site. Just click the links on the site to navigate.

The only thing that changed I believe was I did start using Ad-Blocker again. Maybe I need to whitelist M&W. I think the Brave Browser includes a built in Ad-Blocker. I like cookies because I'm lazy so those are enabled.

Thanks again guys for the tips and suggestions!

Brave will cause issues with logging into certain websites.  I'm not sure what Mac and wife uses but if the website is a little glitchy brave and TOR will cause issues.  Brave incorporates an ad blocker and some other privacy controls that can cause issues.
