Auto-login not working

31-12-2005, 21:04
I have auto-login enabled (and have double checked that it was not somehow changed) but every time I return to the website, I am logged out. Cookies are enabled, and in my options I have it set to keep cookies until they expire (as opposed to the options "ask me every time" or "keep until browser closes). I am in Firefox, but the auto-login was working fine until just recently. If anyone has any ideas on how to fix this, that would be greatly appreciated.

Go into Firefox's Tools / Options / Privacy / Cookies / View Cookies tab (in 1.5, may have a different approach in yours) and clear the autologin cookie from under Then go back to NS and redo your settings. Your cookie probably got corrupted.

This happened to me too with does every once in a while and then after a month or so it'll go back.

That seems to have worked, thank you. Just mentioning that even though "" is part of the address for the forums, I didn't see any cookie with "" so I deleted cookies with "" or some similar variation, and the problem seems to be solved. Thanks again.
