I stay singed in automatically all the time unless I delete my cookie or sign out.

I seem to stay logged in most of the time. If I use another device or computer, it will make me sign on when I come back to the original one but if I use the same device, it usually stays logged on for days, even if I restart the device.

Chrome has a “Rember The Password” Extension. I’m not signed in all of the time but I just click on the Chrome, Desktop Shortcut “Sign In To Your Lumberjocks Accountant” Up it pops and I click on “Sign In”.

After reading all the post I going to change my answer just a bit to answer your question ”Is there a way to stay signed in to LJ?”

Use one device for this site, don’t delete the cookie for this site and don’t log out. If you do that you should stay singed in all the time.

Using multiple devices can sometimes cause you to be signed out when you shut down one of the devices. Also, I have had my account signed out when I work thru one ISP and then go thru a different ISP. May have something to do with IP aqddresses.

That is what I do. Of course people might believe I am actually on the computer but hey it is what it is. LOL

I have the same problem as John D. I use the same device – my laptop. After browsing the site, I merely move on to another site. I come back later – whether an hour or a few hours later – and I am often signed out.

I haven’t logged off. I haven’t deleted any cookies. It is just signed out. I can’t make out a rhyme nor reason.

Almost the same for me. The only difference is I use my iPad and my computer, but If I leave the site and come back while still on the same device, I have to log in again. I was wondering if it had anything to do with using a Mac instead of a PC.

It’s frustrating because I check in throughout the day and have to log in each time.

LJ drives me nuts with as often as it makes me sign back in. It seems to average once every few days per device. I read the site on the computer, iPad, and occasionally on my phone.

Fixing the lack of persistence in the login cookie would be tops on my list of upgrades for the site, maybe behind making the site work properly on mobile devices.

It takes me literally 5 seconds to sign in. 2 clicks.

I don’t see the trouble.

True, but some of us have piles of Alder waiting for us to process into something and every seconds counts.

Actually it’s intentional. Several years back someone found a way to screw with the site by being signed in on more than one device or browser at a time, I don’t remember the details, but it was changed so if you signed in on one it would auto log you out of another. I think it was back when Martin was still here. There should be a post about it if someone wanted to dig around and find it.

At work I leave my computer on, and when I leave Lj’s signed in, I can log in at home and when I come back to work in the morning I’m still logged in.

I think Cricket is back from vacation, maybe she will chime in.
