    I have time to re-enroll, or, post. Not both.

    Pick one.

    I do click on the "remember me" box.

    It didn't remember me this morning either :rolleyes:

    But signing in again is a simple 3 click process. At least it's just once in a blue moon....on Yahoo it's every two weeks and the process to get to your groups is getting to be a more and more of a hassle.

    This happens to me now and then too. Thank goodness it's an esy process to get back in and not as complicated as it can be on some websites.

    I never noticed that little thing but just tried it. The problem is that I delete my history often. I won't be doing it anymore.

    I went ahead the box to remember me upon signing in here and I have been signed in ever since. Four days now. So I can't delete my history and I had to go into my browser settings and uncheck the place to clear history. That's what fixed the problem for me, even when my computer turns off.

    Now, I stay signed in with Gardenstew and Yahoo and even my dang webmail. They used to sign me out every 5 minutes, no exaggerating.

    Try what I did. Thanks for making me think about this issue.

    I had to sign in again yesterday and I'm in the UK...

    I've never had problems with clearing out my history,its usually when you clear out the cookies that your passwords disappear into the ether :scheming:

    If you delete your history it should be fine. However if you delete your cookies it will log you out of all websites you have signed into, including GardenStew. Auto-login systems rely on cookies to function. Cookies get a bad name on the Web but they are very useful for web developers. As with any tool they can be misused.

    Oh yes, I'll correct myself. I used to delete history and cookies. Now I don't and I do stay signed in now. I really like that feature.

    Silly me in Pa.

    And some cookies expire too. They have an affixed expiration date and at that point the computer won't recognize them.
    Most are dated for sometime in June 2116 but others have a shorter life span.

    So even if you never delete the cookies, you can sometimes get bumped off a site like that.

    Font size is now 4 point or smaller.

    I am not able to increase this from my computer.

    This is a barrier to access.

    Don't know what Browser you are using but try holding down the Ctrl key while you roll the wheel on the mouse. You can make it larger that way and it should be that size until you change it.

    Nothing has changed for me after I logged back in. :-? That seems odd to me that the 'stew would automatically change for you unless something in your computer was changed. Are you the only one to use your computer or are there other users who have access to your computer?
