    Hello,

    Lately I have been having this problem when I log in to wordpress.com and it is that I have to enter my username and password every time I login. When I close my Internet Explorer window and re-open it I have to re-enter my username and password.

    The problem started almost three days ago, and it is very annoying because I log in to my blog so many times during the day. Before that I used to check the ‘remember me’ checkbox and it would save my username and password, so when I type the URL I would be directly logged in.

    This problem is happening with only http://www.wordpress.com
    I am using Internet Explorer version 7.0

    Any help is really appreciated, thanks in advance :)

    I’m “glad” to see someone else has same problem I’m currently struggling with :) Infact this “automatic logoff” feature occurs also when posting a new article it seems. I can confirm that problem has started 2-3 days ago. I am also using Internet Explorer version 7.0

    Best bet would be send in a feedback and make sure that they’re aware of the issue.

    Works fine for me in IE7 though.

    I have a similar problem with IE 6 at work. I just put it down to the cookie and have ignored as I’m not supposed to log in from work anyway.

    No problems in IE6 or FF at home. Refuse to upgrade to IE7.

    I did, Thanks… :)
    Also filled in the support/trouble ticket form the other day and have not heard from anyone as of yet…
    I am certain there is a laundry list of “to-do’s”

    it’s all good! :)

    Its happening to me too.
    or maybe, it was purposely made like that so that it can prevent hackers or other people to access your personal stuff easier?

    or.. it can really be a problem.
    LOL

    Seems like there is no problem when using Firefox browser

    That’s nice. These folks are using IE7 though, not firefox.

    yes IE7 is still acting up
    no biggie but it is nice not having to login in all the time.

    I’m having the same problem with AOL but not Firefox. Not a huge issue, but I use the AOL for one of my blogs to help keep me unconfused since it’s a separate account. I know WordPress always comes through, so I’m just adding my voice to let you know the problem is out here. Thanks!

    Doesn’t AOL still use IE5 for it’s browser?

    It’s still happening for me in IE 6 too.

    I’m trying to find which IE my AOL is using, but I’m having trouble figuring it out. Can’t find it on the Help/About look-up. Sorry. But up until about a week ago, I had no problems using this AOL access to my blog. I seem to think this happened after I cleaned my cookies, but am not sure. All I know is that the Remember Me doesn’t! (-; (I’m trying not to take it too personally.)

    Oh… I just tried it on IE7 all on its own and it works fine.

    So glad I am not alone. It is frustrating, every time I have to log in, it’s just a pain in the butt. I can’t wait until they get it fixed! :)

    currently using IE7

    Moderators and fellow bloggers answering questions on the forum do not have backend access to blogs and cannot provide “technical” fixes. So hopefully you will be filling in feedbacks and sending them in to staff tomorrow. Also the possibility that exists is that the problem is not at the wordpress end of things.
