The last few times I have logged in successfully, when I try to go to a forum, I have to log in again.

Which browser? Is the browser set to remember passwords? Are you running the browser in "private mode", where the browser clears history and password?

I'm using exactly the same browser, Konqueror, as I have for the past two years and it always remembers the password for me. That is how I log in the first time; then I can access various areas of the site but not the forums without a second login.

Me too!

Something has occurred in the last few weeks that means I have to log in to the LXF site, then again to access the forums (fora?).

This occurs both with M$ XP and IE6 on my work box and Fedora 6 and Firefox at home and occurred simultaneously, without any configuratuion changes that I am aware of on either machine.

Strange!

Are you using the .com or .co.uk address? If you're using the uk address, the Forums link goes to .com, which requires a separate login cookie. The answer is to update your bookmarks to use the .com address.
