Pauline, Rees,

Could you try the following please:
clearing cookies
clear browser cache
quit browser
re-launch browser

and then tell me if anything is different.
Theo,
I've tried doing this too. Still no joy. I can't stay logged in and the 'show unread posts since last visit' is not working either.
Sorry. Thanks for trying to help.

Funnily enough, this topic is the only one showing up when using the link!

However, using the "click here to try all unread topics" link works like the "show unread topics" should... like if their functionality had been swapped!

Unread topics since last visit show up correctly if I leave the site but don't close my browser. If I do close my browser or visit from my other computer, no unread topics show.

Have you changed anything Theo? Today it seems the link is programmed to display only ads for Bompezzo Italian-style boxes  ;)

My browser is Firefox.  I went to the "show cookies" option, deleted the two cookies put there by melodeon.com, and now the unread posts show up exactly as before. Thanks for the tip.

Our machine is running Windows Vista, Internet Explorer. I've just deleted all my browsing history and all my cookies, and logged back in with my user name, correct password, and "Forever" session length. I am then welcomed by name, but whenever I return thereafter, I'm greeted once again as "guest".

I first experienced problems when, after always being permanantly logged in, I suddenly became logged out for no apparent reason.
 I managed to log back in, not without some *difficulty, but could not get the "permanant" log in function accepted.
( *I suspect that this difficulty arose from the fact that, inspired by G. G., I adopted my current I.D. which was getting confused with the original one)
 Consequently each time I visit the forum page I am greeted as Guest and invited to log in.
I have however discovered that by just clicking the "log in" link above the detail boxes, without completing them, it takes me to the log in page, greeting me and displaying the link to latest unread posts.
Just clicking this link usually works, again without filling in any details.

Hmmmm.....Not the same for me. When I try clicking on the "Log In" link above the detail boxes, it still asks me for detailed login information, which it then does not remember on subsequent visits.

Sorry I'm just not computer savvy enough to be able to make any helpful suggestions, but just hoping that some remark made here or there along the way might help contribute to that "Ah-HA!" moment. Thanks to all the more knowledgeable folks who are helping to sort this all out, especially Theo.

Could this be a Simple Machines version 1.1.7 programming issue? Viljo started the Finnish Free reed site with Simple Machines and all sorts of problems occuring there (like unable to include file attachment etc.) when using IE7 but works fine with Firefox...

I think you may be right Risto in that the problems only came to light after I upgraded to SMF1.1.7,  but there was also a problem with the server which meant I had to reinstall some files, so there is more than one possibility.

I was having a similar problem - instead of taking me to the 'Show unread posts since last visit' option, my bookmark was going to the login screen, and not remembering that I was already logged in.
I fixed it by updating my bookmark which now points to http://www.melodeon.net/smf/index.php?action=unread. I can't remember what the value was before, but I'm pretty sure it didn't have 'smf' in it.
Hope this helps.

I've changed one more server setting related to cookies which may help the problem of login not persisting.

Any change?

Think you may have cracked it!
Can now achieve "permanant" log in and things seem to be as they were.
Also, it is now highlighting Yesterday posts - previously it only did Today ones.

I do believe it's behaving itself now.

I'll keep you posted.
