Getting kicked off Chowhound

I seem to recall reading about this a long time ago... I was catching up on a bunch of threads this am and got booted off multiple times. Anyone else?

  1. By this I assuume you mean you have to log in. I had that problem a lot last night, but not today. I was moving around more boards than usual, so I don't know if that had something to do with getting logged off.

      That's what I meant, rw -- once I log on, I've never had to re-log-on before. I was going between three or four boards, which is pretty usual for me.

        I noticed your OP was yesterday when I was having problems. So maybe there was something going on with the site then. Any problems today?

          Actually my post was today (July 12) at 12:30 pm PST... I didn't notice it last night but I wasn't online for very long...

          Happening to me,also. Not only having to log on but to enter my stored password. What is the point in storing it if it has to be entered each log on? Very annoying!!

          1. re: marti

            I've always had to enter my log in name and password to get on CH but not every few minutes :-(.

            1. re: grayelf

              I get asked to re-enter my login and password every once in a while - maybe once a month. Not every time I browse Chowhound.

              It sounds like the OP's problem may have been due to a brief problem at the Chowhound end of things.

              You can also have a problem if you switch to a new computer or a new browser. The browser needs to be set to use "cookies". Cookies - certainly an appropriate name for something used by the Chowhound site, LOL! - are small files on your computer, which your browser uses to store your login and password to access this site.

                Thanks, nsxtasy. I haven't had to log in every time since I upgraded my computer a few months back but now it seems to be necessary again. I'll check the cooky situation for sure :-).

                1. re: grayelf

                  Cooky check did not work so I tried something my IT guy suggested, and it did: a system restore choosing a date prior to when the problems started. I take it this would only work on a PC but work it did.
