    I find that I often am still logged in from a previous visit here but as I move around in the forums I, almost every time get logged out in the very middle of things. Is this typical of anyone else here?

    I go to reply to topics, then it says you must be logged in to do that. It says it here and there for some reason, but not all the time.

    It shouldn't be logging you out. Can you give me details of your browser, platform, etc.? I'll shoot a message over to the xF folks.

    Never had that happen before. That would be incredibly annoying.

    I've never had a problem here. But I had that exact same issue on another forum. They never were able to figure out what was causing it either.

    So I'd be interested to know what the problem was if/when you get it resolved.

    Thanks. A few questions after doing a little research:

    Do you click "stay logged in" when you log in? You should remain logged in if that is done from the same computer.

    Do you ever notice the url going from www.gotitans.com to just gotitans.com? If so, then we have a cookie scope issue. If that's the case, log out, dump cookies, go to www.gotitans.com, re-log in.

    One suggestion is for you to try dumping your cache in case it is getting full. All the other suggestions are quite a bit more complex. Let me know how it goes.

    I cleared the cache and cookies and it appears to be running smoothly.
    Prior to that I did go back to the GT homepage and it logged me out.
    After clearing it seems to be fixed..
