How to not have to keep logging in manually every time you visit the forum.

In order for the forum to recognize you as a member, and allow a return to the forum without logging in every time, click on the box that says "remember me". This sets a cookies on your hard drive to allow automatic log in. When you are inactive on the forum for five to ten minutes, the forum automatically logs you out. The only reason to log out manually is if you share a computer with another person, such as a public computer in a library.

If you check the "remember me" box and it does not work for logging in, your browser did not let the forum software store the cookie. Look at the bottom of your browser window for a red circle with a line through it. This tells you that the site was trying to set or read a cookie but your browser stopped it. Double click on the circle and a box will pop up. Select "accept cookie from site".

There is help about cookies in the forum's FAQ.

What is 'Automatic Login'?

When you register (and also when you login using the form at the top
of the screen), you will be given the option to 'Remember Me'. This will
store your identity securely in a cookie on your computer. If you are using
a shared computer, such as in a library, school or internet cafe, or if you
have reason to not trust any other users that might use this computer, we
recommend you do not enable this.
