I'm still a bit of a novice at all this computer stuff so the answer may be obvious but.... Even though I check the box 'log on automatically' I still have to do it each time I visit ? In the immortal words of Ivan from Ivanhoe....'is it me ???" Any ideas ons ?

Hmm.. After you have logged in once, your cokies should automatically keep you logged in on subsequent visits, unless you click on "your account" and click log off. I can think of a couple of things that might cause the problem. 1. Corrupt or old cookies.. In Internet Explorer go to tools > internet options > general > temporary internet files > settings. Make sure you check for a new copy of the page on every visit is marked. Click on Delete cookies... be warned that this might mean you have to re-enter passwords on other sites as well. 2. Proxy server ticked (or transparently enabled at your ISP). If a page is proxied, they may continue to serve up an front page, showing the login block on the top right.. Try holding down the CTRL key and clicking on refresh, does it then reload correctly ? I would like to know if otheres get this problem.. or does it remember your login correctly ?

I have the same problem as Rico, but after reading your reply, I note that when leaving the website, I should not "Log Off". Thanks for advice.

Sorry to have wasted your time ons .........I had been logging on from the bottom of the screen. When I logged on from the top of the screen I found I was permanently in. Thanks mate.

no problem at all.. I should have something like that in a FAQ section (if I ever get around to it).
