It'd be really good not to find ourselves on the front page when we log in. It'd actually be better if we could stay logged in like on the other forum so that every time we come we are still logged in.

I agree. I go to the home page of PDSA, log in and think I'm logged in for the forum, but when I go to the forum, I have to log in again, then it takes me back to the PDSA page. I feel like I'm running around in circles.

I don't mind logging in on the PDSA home page, then going to the forum, but I don't like logging in on the forum and then being taken back to the home page. Can we log in on the forum page and stay on the forum page, or better yet, be kept logged in from the last time we logged in, until we choose to be logged out or for a specified period of time? That would be great! Thanks.

I just went to check on this and when I logged into the home page I was also logged into the forum and didn't have to enter my info again. Perhaps this is because I have administrator access, but not sure.

Anyone else stay logged in when entering info on the home page?

I can log in to on the main page and then click Discussion groups and stay logged in if I use the link on the blue "member web site menu". Verified on IE version 6 and Firefox version 5.

On the other hand, if I select the select "visit the discussion groups" under the "popular pages" then the results are not consistent. I currently can't get it to fail, but earlier it did....

It does seem that when you click on login, the default from the login window is back to the main page, rather than the discussion group where you started.

Joan just now I came to the discussion group page - clicked on sign in, logged in and was immediately taken to the main PDSA page when I was on the discussion group page when I signed in. Would have been nice to have stayed on the discussion group page.


Editing this to add:

If you are on your profile page and want to come back to the discussion group and you click on the home that I have copied & pasted:
Home \ Your Profile \ Melinda
you are taken to the PDSA home page not back to the discussion group

I find that I browse the forum not logged in because I can't be bothered doing so first, then if I want to answer a post and hit the login link I get taken back to the front page and have to find my way back to the thread I was reading in order to answer. On other forums if you want to answer a post and login there it keeps you there and you can answer immediately.

The log in time has been changed to 5 hours. I hope that helps.

I agree with Ann. I had the old forum as my homepage.

I've got this url set up on my quick links tool bar:
www.pdsa.org/discussion-groups/latest.html
It takes me directly to a list of discussions with the newest at the top.

I've been logged in for over a week now, but just today it made me log in again. I agree, I want to stay logged in.
