mine keeps me logged in fine.
I'm using Internet Explorer though, what browser do you use?

do you have any Privacy/Intenet Security applications running? That might be deleting your Visitor Cookie.

lets give this a shot:

1. Open a new IE window (not a tab) and type/paste precisely:
http://www.mzriders.com

2. Put a check in "Log me on automatically each visit " and sign in with your credentials. Click on a forum or two, and close IE.

3. Open a brand new IE window again, and again go to:
http://www.mzriders.com

Did it keep you logged in this time?

Then;

1. Open a new IE window (not a tab) and type/paste precisely:
mzriders.com
(without www. prefix)

2. Put a check in "Log me on automatically each visit " and sign in with your credentials. Click on a forum or two, and close IE.

3. Open a brand new IE window again, and again go to:
mzriders.com

If it keeps you logged in when accessing http://www.mzriders.com but not with http://mzriders.com let me know and i'll be able to fix that.

If it does not keep you logged in regardless of the address you use, something else is going on and we'll look into it further.

Did all that you asked and it works now. I found what the problem was. I was using http://new.mzriders.com/ :oops:

i didn't change anything yet.

i think that when the login was made to save the credentials, it was done through one type address (with or without www.) and when you were trying to return, it was done through the other.

odd thing is, it should not have saved your cookie(login) through http://mzriders.com, but it appears that it did somehow.

to prevent this from affecting other users in similar circumstances, i'm going to force the forum to forward any addresses that come in without www. to r adding that in the address and reload. this way login cookies can never mismatch the domain being viewed.

that should come in effect later tonight. thanks for reporting this.
