    Keeping users logged in - cookie problem

    My login system works fine other than one problem - if the user closes the browser window, their login info is not retained and they are prompted to log in again. I'm using cookies set by phpbb and by default one of them is set to expire at the end of the session (because it contains a SID)...I'm really not sure what to do...the site is www.drunkdrinks.com. I look forward to your suggestions!

    Your session shouldnt expire because of a window being closed. It sounds like there is another problem. You may need to adjust the path that your cookies are saved via your phpBB admin board. I seem to remember experiencing something similar with a BB (phpBB or Invision Board cant remember) and i realize that my COOKIE's path's were incorrect.
