    Logging on (XP Prof SP 2)

    Whilst I am logged on to the lounge perhaps I could ask another brief question . When I get the log on frame on screen is it possible to tweak some setting to log me on automatically without having to enter personal details into the two boxes? Originally it did perform an auto log in till I created another account to ask a question for a friend who, for some reason, could not do so on her computer. My intention was to hand the account over to her so she could change the personal details [user name & password etc] and use it herself but I don't think she took up the offer so I asked Hans to delete all relics of that question and user name which he kindly did. Thanks S F

    Re: Logging on (XP Prof SP 2)

    First of all, I think that if you don't "logout" when you finish a Lounge session, your cookies should remember The Lounge the next time you fire it up and you shouldn't have to logon each time. Of course, I wouldn't recommend doing that on a public computer or one that is shared by several people. Here at home I never logout when I leave and don't have to logon when I come back.

    On the other hand, several years ago I picked up from someone, maybe Mum told me but I don't remember. I have a bookmark handy that has my username and password in it for Lounge logon. You can see it in <post:=232,924>post 232,924</post:> if you want to try it. However, in current Lounge, XP and Firefox software, running that bookmark DOES bring up the Lounge at the logon screen UNTIL I press the enter key, then it logs me in as it's supposed to.

    Note: Big Al and I interpreted your question differently - Big Al's reply is about logging into Woody's Lounge, mine about logging into Windows XP 9because you asked your question in the windows XP forum, not in Lounge Matters). In hindsight, I think that Al is correct.

    Sorry Hans if I was not precise enough, yes Big Al was on the tight frequency. For some reason [just acting on a hunch] I always logged off when leaving the Lounge but thanks Al for enlightening me that there is no need for me to so do seeing the only users of the computer are myself and my daughter who is oblivious to the Lounge anyway. However, I have just tried three times to log on without logging off and still had to enter the details. Could it be the cookie is not being remembered and I need to tweak the settings somewhere? Many thanks gentlemen. S Fox.

    I will move this question to Lounge Matters since it is about the Lounge, not about Windows XP.

    Make sure that you allow cookies - see <post:=1,917>post 1,917</post:>.

    You can also try to delete the cookie for wopr.com. The following instructions are for FireFox:
    Select Tools | Options...
    Click Privacy.
    Click Show Cookies...
    Select the cookie for wopr.com.
    Click Remove Cookie.
    Next time you visit Woody's Lounge, you'll have to log in again, but hopefully you'll remain logged in now.

    Re: Logging on (XP Prof SP 2)

    Hello again, I followed the directions to allow wopr.com. in the exceptions frame but despite closing the lounge down [as does Big Al] without logging off, I do not remain logged on. I also clicked on post 1917 & read it also but to no avail. As I explained in the first post on this thread before I created the second account it used to log on automatically but stopped when I deleted it from the pop up on the log in page. Don't know if this suggest anything guys but (see attachment) the instant I enter the "S" in the Name field, the name appears which when clicked on automatically inserts both the name and password. I know it's not a big hurdle but even little hurdles for me present a challenge of sorts that I like to master. Regards S Fox

    I'm afraid I don't have a solution for you.

    A couple of questions. Did you try my custom bookmark trick to see if that would help? If not, you should. It won't hurt anything and you can always delete it if you want.

    Next, you said you did the "allow" suggestion in Mum's old post, but did you do the part Hans suggested about temporarily deleting the Lounge cookie(s) from Firefox? The reason for the (s) is that even if you did the delete, you should make sure you first expand that wopr.com list by clicking on the + to make sure you get all of them. In my case, there are five. Deleting should get them all, but it doesn't hurt to make sure. (see attachment)
