Is it this site or my computer?  It used to be that when I signed in to this site, unless I rebotted my computer, when I came back to PBS I would still be signed in.  Starting a couple of days ago, every time I come to this site I have to sign in again.

I think it's probably your computer.  I'm not having the problem at all.

Sometimes I have that issue but it's really inconsistent and I can't figure out what makes it happen.  Annoying though, I'll grant you that.

Sounds like you cleared your cookies that told your computer to keep you logged in to PBS.

Next time you log in make sure you check the box that says "remember me".

You can also double check which page you're going to. If you're getting to PBS by typing just the first few letters in your browser, then it might be remembering the wrong URL.

E.g. if I type "pap" in my address bar, I see a list of pages at PaperBackSwap, and I can use the down arrow to highlight the one I want and then press the arrow key. However, there are three pages called "My Account Page". If I look at the URLs, they are:

  • http://www.paperbackswap.com/members/index.php
  • http://www.paperbackswap.com/members/index.php#t=en_route_to_me
  • http://www.paperbackswap.com/members/index.php#t=books_i_mailed

All very similar, but they'll take me to different places on my My Account page. If you're getting to the site the same way I do, then your browser may have suddenly decided to put the link to the login page at the top of your list.

I've had to login 3 separate times today so I think it may be the site.  Normally I only have to log in every couple weeks.
