I have a New York Times account. When I want to read an article, it asks me to login. I logged in, and it's clear I did log in successfully because the subsequent page shows my user name on the top right corner. But then it asks me to login again, and this repeats forever, without the article being shown to me. Does anyone have the same problem?

This could happen if you have your browser set to not save any cookies. The site recognizes your sign in. But when you attempt to read an article, the site looks for its cookie but it's not there.

But my browser does save all cookies I have no problem with other websites with login, where I could remain logged in for many days.

Any time you have trouble staying logged into a site the first step is deleting that sites cookies, how depends on the browser. You can wipe them all out but you'll be logged off of every site you use.

I just cleared cookies and was able to read articles on NYT. Thanks. I usually hate to do this because I have to re-login to many sites.

Guess I wasn't clear in my previous response but there is ways to do this with single site, it varies by browser.
