Hi, The 'remember me' cookie issue should now be resolved, it was the site now passing through a new proxy server that was preventing the cookie from being written. Worth pointing out though, for it to work, please ensure that your browser isn't clearing cookies on exit. In other news regarding the Adverts, I'll be removing the 'footer' banner shortly for logged in users so it's less intrusive. All the best, Rick

Recently we've started delivering the site via a proxy server, part of a trial using an alternative Ad Delivery Network which promises more revenue. I'm now wondering if this new system is interfering with the storage/reading of cookies, it is currently in A/B testing, so 80% of traffic goes to the new system, 20% to the old, so this could answer why sometimes logins remain, other times they're wiped. I'm not going to be able to get hold of them until Monday, but promise I will to resolve this. In the meantime, thanks for your patience. Rick

Unfortunately all sites (that deliver adverts) are having to comply with more stringent cookie consent, hence the abundance consent overlays all over the Internet.

Hi, I've just done some extensive testing on this and unfortunately can't replicate the issue. (Browser) Stored passwords seem to be fine and also, the retention of the 'remember me' cookie, but it's worth pointing out for that you work you need to ensure that your browser doesn't clear cookies on exit. Might be worth trying clearing all your cookies and internet data from your device to see if this resolves the issues. Regarding the Adverts, we're currently trialing an alternative AdNetwork to try and increase revenue to keep the site going, I appreciate in recent days the quantity of Adverts that have been displayed have been a little over the top, something I'm currently reigning in with the new AdNetwork. Although I know at times Adverts are a little annoying, but it's the main revenue stream for the site and its existence relies on them. Cheers, Rick

Looks like a bug has crept in when I've updated the photo viewer, only seems to occur when trying to view large from a portfolio. I'll investigate and fix it tomorrow. Cheers, Rick

Hi Everyone, Agreed the Galleries, image sizes are showing their age. All being well we hope to dedicate some time in the New Year to give the site a refresh along with a few upgrades. All the best, Rick

Northumberland Coast

Superb set Bill and great write up! Northumberland is a seascape photographer's paradise, so peaceful most of the time, although Bamburgh & Seahouses are buzzing on a summers day! Wish I lived nearer, 3 hours up the A1 but well worth it for out of season mini breaks where I thoroughly enjoy the tranquility. Rick
