Nah, I've been here off and on as tech issues have arisen. Haven't been as active as far as actually participating in threads, due to school. It seems every other day now a new paper needs to be written! :shock:

Some updates.

There was a bug where when you viewed a user's profile who had more than 5000 posts, you couldn't see their most active topic/forum. This has been corrected.

Also a mobile theme has been installed to streamline the "mobile" experience for those that like to browse on their smart-phones. If you preferred the regular look on your phones when browsing, you can also click a link at the bottom of any page to go back to the full theme.

To say that sucked, would be an understatement. During the upgrade process of the forum to the latest software package, one of the files within said upgrade package was corrupt - sending the forum into the errors you saw earlier. Luckily, the forum is backed-up automatically. The bad news is, the backup was from roughly ten hours ago. I apologize for any inconvenience.

I agree. Perhaps us "old timers" should make a donation of some kind...money?

Hi domino. Make sure that your browser does not block the ability to save cookies from third party sites (such as this one). Or that you do not utilize a browser extension that blocks cookies. The ability to stay logged in, and to automatically be logged in each time you visit relies upon the ability of your browser to store and retain the cookie assigned to your login.

Also, are you using Firefox by any chance? I've seen this behavior in Firefox more than any other browser. If your browser is set up to save cookies already - an older cookie may be conflicting. The quick fix for this would be to clear your browsers cookies and cache. The new cookie you are assigned after doing so will be correct, and the login/out behavior you describe should go away.

Yes this is Firefox.I'm not very computer savvy so a lot of what you say goes over my head.
So would the quick fix mean going to the bottom of the page where it says Delete all board cookies ?

No, he means this:

It's quick and easy!

You could try that as well. Wouldn't hurt. But to clear all browser cache and cookies, you will need to do this: https://kb.iu.edu/d/ahic#firefox

Then after following the above tutorial, completely close and reopen Firefox, then click the "clear all board cookies" link you mentioned in your above post.
