Been googling the forum login issue where it doesn't stay logged in, even if you select, 1 hour, 1 year, etc.

Found this:

"I simply turned off "Use subdomain independent cookies" and all works fine now."

"It is in Admin > Server Settings > Feature Configuration tab. These three settings control some aspects of login/logout:

Enable local storage of cookies
Use subdomain independent cookies
Use database driven sessions"

Worth a try if you haven't already.

I'll search for more.

Also this:

"what is your forum URL set to in admin>server?

be sure that is eaxactly what you use to log in with.  must be the same including www or not."

Hopefully most issues are now resolved.
