Is there any way that the way the website works can be changed? IE—When I click on a link within an email sent to me.
I click on the link to view a page concerning my “likes” etc, before I can add a comment I have to sign in, (not a problem), then i have to go back in the “history” and then refresh the the page I wanted to view. Other sites either log me in from the email link or at least take me back to the page where I signed in at?

I stay signed in all the time unless I sign out.

I would advise caution in that respect in that it leaves you open to hackers etc!
I never stay signed into any site for any longer than it takes me to see what I need to.
Not to mention almost all sites can follow where you go and what you do online as long as you are signed on.

I’m not signed in anywhere else. Guess you will have to keep signing in to post unless Martin reprograms LJ.

I suppose so! In the meantime I will view without posting I guess. :D

Why not just log in before you start?

”Why not just log in before you start?”

Seems Logical to me. That’s what I do. Takes all of 20/30 Seconds.

Topa, Rick – thanks for the suggestions!
That would also work except that I generally only go to lumberjocks from an email link updating me on new comments etc (like this conversation) or new content from my Buddies and almost never connect through my bookmarks.
It isn’t the amount of time it takes etc, it just has to do with how I get here I guess.
I wasn’t complaining (much), mostly just wondering as it seems most of the other sites I visit work differently. :D

Dez, this is not true. The only downside to staying signed in is that people using your computer will be able to pose as you. It does not allow access to hackers and it does not allow one website to follow your activities on other websites. This website, for example, has no way of knowing what you do outside this website. It only knows whether or not you are signed in.

Agreeing with Ted. Additionally, it’s only if they’re using the same machine under your account. Even on a shared machine, cookies are account-specific, so your kid (for ex) wouldn’t be logged into LJ just because you are.

I leave sites like this logged in as long as they let me. I can follow email links and the site’s still logged in from my last visit.

Thanks for the info guys. I am not sure how long before we get logged out here but I have never logged out so it can’t be too long – worked great today.
