Is there some way to get Upload Configuration | Login entries to be retained? Here (V2.0.2, XP SP3) they get lot on each OD reboot.

It would be particularly useful to have them persist now that Imageshack is requiring login - a few weeks ago it started barring anonymous uploads.

Thanks.

Hello,

please try the following:

* Setup your settings (including user name and password) using the system tray menu (not the optional settings dialog right before the upload)
* (Optional) verify it
* Close Shotty using the system tray menu. In some few cases it is possible Shotty gets terminated instead of closed by the operating system, causing the settings not to be saved.
* After that wait a few seconds so Shotty is really closed. Now you can start it again and all settings should be as defined, including the credentials.

That works - thanks.

Ever since using Shotty, I have been shutting down Windows using "Turn off computer", and always the login credentials were lost. This is Windows XP SP2 and 3.

Funny, because I have tested this on such machines also. Maybe a system configuration thing or something, I don't know.
Anyway, that needs to be changed.

But glad to hear this "workaround" worked for you.

Have a nice day
