I've been having the same issues on a Motorola (Android) phone for a while. It doesn't log me out every time I switch threads or refresh the screen, and I can't find a pattern or reason for when it does. But it does it a lot and doesn't seem to be related to deleting cookies or browser history which I seldom do anyway.

Most of the other forums that I follow are on Tapatalk, so this is pretty much the only site I regularly check "native", or whatever the word is, on my Chrome browser.

I think that is a security feature of the board software.

I'm sure it is. I use LastPass and have it set to log me in if logged out, so it's not really that big of a deal.

Try using a browser shortcut into a texaschlforum thread. I use a shortcut to my last posting and never have to log in with Firefox/Windows7.

Exactly
SInce I NEVER have to log back in from PC the board software isnt forcing the relogin. Its the settings on your phone. Your phone may only keep history or cookies for a short time based on space issues, or security issues. Could be any number of things ..

On one of my android devices, a tablet, every time I hit the "first unread post" link I get logged out of the forum.
Only happens on this one device.

Are we beginning to see a pattern here? A spammer named koiseptember copies and pastes another member's post, and sticks his spammy links at the bottom......which I change to point to texaschlforum.com when I quote him. It's an interesting new tactic.
