Can you please set a client side cookie that maintains my logged in state from session to session? If I close the browser window after already logging in, then re-visit the forum later, there is zero reason I should be asked to log in again. Unless I flush my cache or explicitly hit logout, I should be ‘logged in’ at all times.
Similarly, its flipping frustrating to read a thread, find one that you want to comment on THEN hit ‘login’, enter your creds, and get redirected back to the forum home page and have to hunt for the thread again that you wanted to comment on. Grab the referrer from the header and redirect me there after logging in so I dont ‘lose my place’.
