Anyone having problems with leaving the site and having to login every time you come back?

Working ok here.
I even used another computer and it logged me in.
That I don't understand but it did.

OK - I have a theory, and hopefully a solution.

Once upon a time the root URL of this website was

Code: Select all

http://www.pennymachines.co.uk/
Then it became

Code: Select all

http://pennymachines.co.uk/
and then, adopting the cryptographic protocol:

Code: Select all

https://pennymachines.co.uk/
But

Code: Select all

https://www.pennymachines.co.uk/
will also get you here.

Until a few days ago Google was indexing the site under the first (and original) of these URLs.
As of Jan 31, I instructed them to prioritize the https://pennymachines.co.uk/ URL, so this should start predominating in results from that search engine.

I've noticed that some members (not surprisingly) view the site from the old www address. If they then visit a page under the secure URL, they will no longer be logged in. This is because it is no longer possible (for good reason) to set "secure" cookies, handled by SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), over an insecure (e.g. HTTP) URL.

So, assuming this is the issue, the answer is to ensure the root address is https://pennymachines.co.uk/ when you log in and make sure you return to and remain on that root. So you would log in to the forum from here
This may mean updating any short-cuts you click upon to get here.
