Go to settings > saved passwords, scroll down to xeforum, delete entry, and log back in. You will need to re enter details, but should get asked whether or not to save.

Do you use Safari on the ipad? Apple released an update Sept / Oct last year that started to block cookies by default. It's possible this is the cause.

I do use Safari, but other passwords still operate. It’s just this forum which gives me the problem.

The new IOS update is mainly around advertising but also causes issues for login cookies: This article covers some of it: http://www.zdnet.com/article/ios-11-rol ... s-hate-it/

Mainly around advertising but it does say this: It will allow cookies to be used in a third-party context for 24 hours to support login scenarios. So after 24 hours you would need to login again unless you change your settings in IOS.
