    iOS5 doesn't keep me logged into forums :(

    Hi

    On every forum I am a member of I have to sign in nearly every time I use them.

    As an example, If I keep this page open and then open another tab, every time I come back to this site I need to log myself back in......even though I tick the "remember me" box when signing in!

    Does anyone know why this is happening?

    Thanks in advance

    I don't know why, but just want to add that in the app, I don't get the push notifications, so I never get a little number to tell me there are posts I'm subscribed to. I used to get that. Since iOS5 however, it has stopped. As soon as I open the app, the subscriptions come through.

    It sounds like you're accessing forums with Safari or another web browser on your iPad. If that's the case, Safari doesn't behave on the iPad in the same way it does on a computer. Safari reloads web pages when you return to them so you might have to log in again. The best thing to do is to use a dedicated forum app if there's one available. We have an iPF App that's just for our members:

    App Store - Discussion Forum for iPad Users

    If there isn't a dedicated forum app, there are other iPad forum programs, the most popular being ForumRunner. Like our own iPF App, ForumRunner can remember your login's, etc.

    I didn't think about it, but I'm having the same experience. I'll notify the Admin to see if we can't get this corrected. Thanks for the "heads up".

    I get the number but it's always wrong and it was wrong before the update as well, but now the parse error is becoming a big problem.

    In settings on the IPad have you set autofill to on in safari, it works for me.

    They're working with the developer on it...hopefully it'll be resolved for us very soon! Thanks for your patience.

    FYI, I've found this doesn't work if your have private browsing toggled on in Safari (under Settings).
