Default Forum has forgotten me :-(

For the last 2 days, I have to log in each time I visit - anyone else noticed this?

I'll delete cookies and see if it's better, but wondered if it's a general problem since an upgrade?

I never log off if I can avoid it, and it is a fairly long time since it has been necessary.

I don't have to log on when I come in.

Nope. Is this true with all browsers?

Have you been visiting other forums lately? Perhaps the forum is just jealous, and is giving you the silent treatment?

Not happening to me, but I haven't restarted the browser or Mac lately.

It's happened to me from time to time in the past ... so I just log in.

You don't have any browser setting to stop cookies that might be doing it?

Reply to all: this is Firefox - I cleared the cookie, rebooted the machine, and now it remembers me. "Just one of those things" I guess.

One thing I am finding frustrating.
In the several forums I am in, there is usually a setting in the User CP, where you can choose the preferred direction of the threads. But I can't find it here. I always prefer the last post, to be top of the page, so it will be the first to be read. Have I missed it?

There is Linear-Newest First (and Linear-Oldest First) in the User CP > Edit Options > Thread Display Options section...

Not sure if that will get you what you are looking for...
