  • "Remember me" feature not working?

    Am I doing something wrong or Is it my iPad? Recently every time I go to sawdustzone I have to re-log in. This may have started when the iPad updated to ver. OS13.3, don’t know. Suggestions?

    Not sure. My iPad is on 13.3 and it will remember me on this site as long I don't log out. I'm using FireFox browser to access the site and it will remember me as long as I don't log out. FF is set to delete all cookies when it ends. How are you accessing this site on the iPad? But you are correct, my iPad used to remember my login in the past. I have looked the settings, but I don’t see anything that could prevent the login being saved now. FF settings are set to remember logins and passwords and that seems to have fixed the issue. However, my knowledge of iOS pales in comparison to Windows.

      My browser is the apple default, Safari. My uneducated guess is that this issue is Apples ploy to make its users start using the keychain or other password storing app.

        Nope, my iPad stays logged in on every site I use while mobile. I don't use forums on anything but a computer, so I can't speak to this site. But yesterday I was arranging a medical procedure and was staying logged in to four different sites related to insurance and doctors with no issue.

          This is probably caused by a corrupt cookie in safari.

          Go to settings --> safari --> advanced --> website data

          after waiting for What seems like an insane amount of time the list of site cookies will show up.

          either search for sawdustzone or scroll through the list to find it
          Swipe left on the site name and tap on delete.

          Back out of settings
          Force Quit Safari or restart your iPad.

          Log into the site again and click the remember me when you log in. It should remember you then.

            twistsol, thanks
            I did the routine described. No change on my end. Does sawdustzone install new cookies after I delete the corrupted cookie?

              Oddly enough this iPad now remembers my login for the webmail app for the ISP we use, but doesn’t remember the sign on for this or any other website. It must be something in the version of FireFox that is installed on this iPad. Just checked and FF is set to save logins. Don’t know why it’s not saving the ones for this site now.

                I don't know how Safari works in IOS on the iPad, but if it is like on the Mac, Safari has a couple of places that hold cookies/data on sites and either can go corrupt.
                Safari Preferences>Passwords (and put in your iPads password to get to "PassWord")>click and scroll down to Sawdustzone, click on SDZ and remove. It will create a new SDZ with password as you log into SDZ the next time.

                the second place to look is Sarari>Prefs>Privacy>click on Manage website data>look for Sawdustzone; remove Sawdustzone close and open Safari and log into SDZ again and put in your password for SDZ.

                  Sorry for the slow response, I've been swamped at work with year end close stuff.

                  The Sawdustzone will create a new cookie if it can't find one that it has created. I haven't looked to see if there are any logged issues with our software and cookies, but I'll take a look this weekend if work lets me have a moment to myself.

                    Something must have healed it! Because it’s working well now.

                      I'd like to take credit for it, but I didn't do anything. It must have been something on your end.

                          I was right, IOS updated last night, now remember me is not working again. Maybe it will heal itself in several weeks like it did before?

                            I think it is Safari. I am having trouble with Safari on my mac getting onto several sites. Been that way for two days. A couple of other browsers work fine.
