How come I have to keep logging in every couple hours?  I know it is a small detail, but it is aggravating.

Log into the forums first and then you’ll only have to log into the store when you need to periodically log in.

I wish!!

I have to log in every time, and I only ever visit the forums. If I close the DAZ site pages, but keep my browser open, then come back to DAZ, I’m still logged in. But as soon as I close my browser, I have to log in again. I can visit Rendo 6 months later, and I’m automatically logged in without a hitch.

Yes, I’ve cleared my cache, blah, blah, blah.

I managed, purely by accident to get a different login screen to login to the forums, others have done it different ways as well.

In this thread, from the linked post downwards for a few posts, and on to next page, explains it a bit. I am now logged in permanently to the forums, haven’t been logged out once having logged in on this screen, remembering of course that the Username in question is actually the Email address that you use to login to the store not your foum username.

I tried that trick as well Chohole. I still get logged out if I close my browser.

I’m pretty sure I was, but as we know from other sources my account was messed up until today. I can try again now.

Wow, that totally confused me.  I might as well have eaten some psychedelic mushrooms before I read that.

Every time I click on a ‘Someone has posted in the DAZ….’ etc, I go straight to the post concerned, AND I am always logged in to the Forums.  I have DAZ as an allowed site in IE9 for cookies, and it seems to work for the forums at least.

If I click on My Account, I have to log in again, like the old forum, but when I tell IE9 to remember the details, is does, but only for the rest of that day.  If I close my browser having been logged in to the store, I am still logged in to the store on return the same day.

OMG!!! At last someone cracked it!

I’m happy to report that after following those steps, I’m now permanantly logged in. Here’s what I did.

ThinMick - 0

So, basically, two tabs:
- Open a quick-reply to any thread in the first one. It doesn’t matter if you type anything, because the content will never be submitted.
- Tab two, just click ‘Log Out’.
- Go back to tab one. Click ‘Submit’ on your reply.
- Ta-da! There it is.


I followed those steps, then rebooted my pc and I’m still logged in. First time since the new site started. Yay!! 

Thanks a lot!

Glad I could help. I found it one way, Mick found it a much simpler way. All we need now is for DAZ 3D to work out how to get this login screen back so it associates with the forum login, instead of having to fumble around finding it. The convo I linked to has been flagged up.

Just did all that. We shall see. Later.

EDIT: It must be something on my end. I have to login every visit.

EDIT #2: Weirdness the second time I was still logged in. It just can not make up it’s mind with me.
