Hi Sandy and welcome. I have seen this problem, you're not alone. Would you by any chance be using IE on a Macintosh?

A few weeks ago I was on holiday, and at one point I managed to scam some time at a friend's house who has a Mac and IE installed. I noticed that there was no way to get IE to save the cookie. Each time I tried to log in to PM, it would keep coming back as having me logged out.

I finally found that if I just logged in without asking for a cookie (don't check the checkbox next to the password field), it worked for as long as I kept the browser window (read: session) open, which, when it comes down to it, was just what I wanted, given the circumstances.

I have no idea whether it is a bug or a (security(?)) feature of IE interacting weirdly with PM, but there you have it. Does this sound like your environment? Maybe it's time to install the lizard. At least just trying a different browser might help determine where the problem lies.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
