Since about a week ago, Railroad.net is ignoring my "Keep my logged in" checkbox and requiring me to log in again -- sometimes several times a day. How do I fix this?

This problem only started happening a week ago, so I'd appreciate if someone could revert whatever change was made that caused this.Did you also empty your browser's cache and then restart? Sometimes the browser works off an old setting, so clearing out your chase will help avoid this problem.

This deletes "cookies" (a little data file that helps web sites remember who you are) and will return your settings back to normal...

Ron Newman wrote:Well, that fix only lasted a few days. Now it's logging me out again at least once a day. Could you please restore the old settings, or make the login cookie last a year or two?You'll want to send a note to [email protected] or send a PM to Jeff Smith.
