PhPBB Login Problems

Post by ross03 » Tue May 16, 2017 8:31 am

I have a problem with Chrome.
I'm registered with several forums powered by PhPBB. On all of these, I attempt to have Chrome remember my login information, so that I automatically login to the forums.

Some days, this works perfectly, but lots of times (i.e., enough that it's a nuisance), I can't get logged into forums. Even if I attempt to log in manually, I return to the home page of the forum, only to find out that I'm still not logged in. I've asked the various website admins about this, and many use Chrome, and haven't encountered this problem, and don't see why it would exist.

Is there something I haven't loaded that can assist with this problem? Like I said, some days it works, some days it doesn't. On days that it doesn't, and I want to check only areas of forums that have new posts, I'm forced to revert back to IE, which is honestly something I'd rather not do.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide with this issue.

In this circumstance, what happens when you press CTRL+F5? ... do you suddenly show logged in again??

All the best,
