The 'remember me next time' checkbox on the user login form does not seem to work properly.
When checking it and closing the browser and restarting it fast you stay logged in, but doing this
again logs you out. This also happens on this forum btw

Is there a way to fix this?

Willr or Hamish answered this somewhere, but can't seem to find it right now.

In sapphire/security open Member.php and about line 402 inside Cookie::set() function change $token to $member->RememberLoginToken
so it should look like this:
Cookie::set('alc_enc', $member->ID . ':' . $member->RememberLoginToken, 90, null, null, false, true);

Hope that helps.

The 90 is how many days till it expires (default is 90) but you can set this to whatever you want. I have always left it on default, so not sure how well it will work.
