My apologies.  

1) not staying logged in on the main site, after closing the browser (nothing new for me) and

2) Since Monday, I've not been able to log into the main site unless I clear my Navicache cookies first.

Have you tried clearing cookies AND History and then restart the browser?
Some times the browser may also be storing pages and you may need to delete temporary internet files.

Many browsers have an option in the settings to 'Clear cookies when closing' or similar. Make sure you do not have that selected.

Are you using AOL by any chance?

My cookies are not cleared, because I like to be signed in to everything forever on my own computer. NC is the only site which does not stay signed in, so it's not a cookie problem.

I thought AOL was an ISP? I am definitely not with AOL, and if they have their own browser, I am unaware of it. It doesn't seem to matter which browser I use though. I have tried signing in with the three browsers I use (Chrome, Firefox and Safari), and not one of them keeps me logged in once I have closed the browser. Again, it is not a cookie problem. Don't worry if you can't work it out, as it's not the end of the world - more of an annoyance than anything else, and now it's not really even annoying. Once it is expected, it just becomes habitual to sign in each time.

AOL is an ISP, but they (and possibly) some others float IP addresses during your session. Meaning that as you move from page to page on a site your IP can change. Navicache.com uses a session cookie and the IP to verify the visitor from page to page and thought this may be the issue.

I am continuing to check things on this end as some visitors may not be as understanding as you about it and not come back. I do not use safari, but as yet have not been able to recreate with Firefox, IE or Chrome.

By the way, when you deleted your navicache cookie did you delete BOTH. There is a navicache.com and a my.navicache.com
cookie container be sure to delete both.

Sure did!  :)

You are talking though, of when you changed my login time, and I needed to delete my NC cookies and history in order to login again - right? Because I have not deleted any cookies since, as I am assuming that it should be the cookies that keep me logged in, and if I delete them then I will be logged out?

Yes, just wanted to confirm you had deleted both at that time.

I have noticed a quirk that has popped up on the Home page menu.
Even after you are logged in the menu option there is no longer changing to 'Log Out' and instead the menu continues to display  'Log In'. This can be confusing as you are actually logged in and all other pages throughout the site will indicate this.

I was able to log into the main page, this morning, without clearing cookies first.

I had never noticed that quirk before. But just in case you were asking in a subtle way, that was never the case with me anytime that I thought I was not logged in: I was most definitely logged out each time.

Here's a strange one though. This morning when I loaded up the NC main page, I was still logged in!  :O

However, when I followed the link to the forum, I was not logged in to the forum. So my universal login was not terribly universal today. Before logging in to the forum, I checked that I was actually logged into the main site, and not just imagining it or mistaken. No, I was definitely logged in to the main site, and equally definitely not logged in to the forum.

After seeing this I checked and I also noticed that when I had come from the main Site to the forums I was not logged into the forums either. Went back to the Main Site -> MyNavicache Profile page and was in fact still logged in there. From there came back to the forums and WAS logged in ?????

I have also noticed other oddities popping up over the past week or two. For example the menus no longer appear on the 'Newest Cache' , Search For Cache' or Hide A Cache pages. In fact those pages have reverted to a two column format and lost all items that used to appear in the left column.

I had offered to assist with any coding changes the new owners wanted to make and sent them an email a few days ago indicating these and other issues that have popped up, but never heard back.

I would also like to add that I seem to be having a cookie issue.  I keep clicking the "remember me" radio button but when I come in from the main page it doesn't know me.
