joomla support cheshire manchester merseyside north west uk

Sometimes there are features of the Joomla! CMS that you simply want to go away.

One such features is the Remember Me checkbox which automatically displays when you publish the LOGIN MODULE.

The checkbox is controlled by a plugin called SYSTEM - REMEMBER ME.


"This plugin provides "Remember Me" functionality. This allows the website to "remember" your username and password so that you can automatically be logged in when you return to the site. This plugin has no options."

You can hide the annoying checkbox simply by disabling the plugin in your website control panel.

All you have to do is unpublish the plugin called:
