Just seems safari can be picky with what website password gets saved. Like I can save my password for stackexchange but I can't do the same for macrumors.com.
I've looked at Safari preferences and nothing stands out. Can you please help? Thanks

In some cases it is the website itself telling the browser to not save the passwords. There are a number of ways a web programmer can implement this and a number of ways to get around it.
More recently I have moved to a 3rd party password manager (1Password) that will save the password for any website.
Editing a preference file is chancy and annoyingly "manual" but possible (EG worth looking into if it is possible) depending on how geeky you want to get. And checking for preferences that say not to remember a password for a specific site in Keychain or Safari itself is worth checking on. But my bet is on a website telling your browser not to remember passwords.
Look in the Safari Preferences on the Passwords tab, is macrumors.com there with something like “Never remember password”? If so, you can remove that entry and try again. You might also like to search for sites in Keychain Access.app as I think ‘never remember’ sites might get stored there as well?
