    It might be a site that does not allow saved passwords. In Safari preferences (under Autofill I think), you can check a box that will allow these passwords to be saved, but the tradeoff is that you must install a lockscreen on your computer. I had the same issue arise when trying to log on to the American Airlines site.

    I have not mastered all the details of iCloud Keychain yet. I'm hoping for a comprehensive article somewhere after the experts have had some time to play with it.

    Replied this to another thread, but will post here also:

    I too had issues with keychain and macrumors. Finally found a workaround it, not sure about other sites, but worth a try.
    1. Enter User Name and Password in Macrumors Forum Login
    2. Do Not Hit Log In
    3. Instead Refresh Page in Safari
    4. Dialog Box asks if you want to reload page, click Reload
    5. Keychain dialog box should now come up

    Hope this helps everyone with issues with macrumors & saving to iCloud keychain.
