Hi
How come I have to sign in each visit now? It’s not a big deal, I just liked the “open door” policy we had before.
Thanks in advance. My only real whine is that i spend more time here than in my shop now. See what I mean, it’s almost 3 a.m. here now.

hmm…. I’ve never signed in and still don’t. I checked account settings and there’s no option that says you have to sign in each time or a place to turn it off. The only thing I can think of is that you have cookies in your preferences turned off on your browser. If you did then you are a new computer each time you access LJ’s as you are not stored as a returning, signed up member.

Sometimes on PC’s the spam and viruses are such an issue that people turn off cookies in their browser to help alleviate websites recognizing them when they return. But, they also let websites like this recognize you each time you return.

Ron, the only thing I can think of besides what Daniel has said is that if you switch computers you will need to sign in on the computer that is currently being used. But if you are using the same computer you should not have to sign in each time you log onto the site.

I just opened LJs and I didn’t have to sign in. My handle at the top of the page doesn’t appear, but “My Lumberjocks” tab is present and works and I can post without signing in.

It is definitely in your cookie settings. Either you have cookies disabled, or you have your browser set to clear browsing data, including cookies, every time you exit the browser.

I had to sign in just to comment here …sometimes I do and other times I’m already logged in. Sometimes the banner reads Hello Dusty (or something like that ) and right now it says “welcome back”. Also lately the site has been extremely slow to respond for the most part . I was trying to upload a few projects the other day and gave up because I couldn’t wait any longer for things to happen. Is anyone else experiencing the jet lag between pages changing ? Thank you.

If you get the LJ tool bar you’re signed in all the time.

Guess it depends on your browser, in Firefox go to preferences, Privacy>Exceptions (find lumberjocks.com) click Allow. Close preferences, your done. This is on a Mac, may be slightly different in Windows.
