Re: Help...I keep having to sign in over and over

Hm, that is really odd... Did you check the box that says 'keep me signed in' when you're logging in? That usually works fine for me.. To be quite honest, I'm not really sure whether it's a problem with the forum, or your internet browser. It might be your Firewall settings, although I'm not really an expert when it comes to that...

Very odd. Vicki has been having the same problem, she can't stay logged in, but she can't even post. I've tried logging in on her account, and then it works fine, so it's not the forum. Like Maartje said, it might have something to do with your firewall or something.

I forgot about that, but Vicki is indeed having the same problem... I'll check the freeforums pages as soon as I get back home today, and I'll let you know.

Re: Help...I keep having to sign in over and over

Ok, I've checked the support forum, and it seems to be a software related problem that doesn't accur when you use either Fire Fox or Internet Explorer 7.0 but of course we can't expect you to change your browser in order to sort this out... There seem to be a couple of other solutions offered so administrators can sort it all out, so I'm gonna give it a shot tonight.

The most easy and quick solution if found so far is chaning the webaddress you're using when you're browsing. Leave out the www, and use this link:

I've always used this link, so I'm not sure whether this works or not, but this is the most easy solution I've been able to find so far.

Re: I keep having to sign in over and over

Well I hope that's the answer to our problems! And it also explains why everything works fine for me, I use Firefox nowadays (so much better than IE) :lol:

And I didn't even know you could access the forum as well if you type www in front of it.

Re: I keep having to sign in over and over

Well, I use IE and that works fine for me, so I guess using Fire Fox is a solution, or just update your IE to the lastest version. (which is great anyway, 'cos you can work with tabs instead of opening new windows)

And yeah, you can access every website without putting 'www' in the link, as long as you use 'http://'. The forum is bookmarked with the http:// link, so I've never tried logging in with the www link, so I'm not sure if that solves the problem... I'll try now...

Edit: problem solved, it's the forum, but using the 'www' url indeed requires constant logging in.

Re: I keep having to sign in over and over

Ok, great! Then I'll close this thread and leave it here, so others (with similar problems) can read how to sort it out too.
