Been away a couple of days, and when I logged into the BB, even though I know there were new posts, none of the side folders were red ( or indicating ne posts). Anybody else having the same problem, or have an idea as to why I'm experiencing this??

Your cookies reset m8 - windows usually does this every 90 days, but occasionally it brainfarts and buggers your entire forum display up lol.

Would that also be the reason I now have to type in my username and password every time I want to respond to a post?? Even though I have reset my preferences ten times???

And is there any way to fix this???

Right click on the links entry in your favorites and select properties. and look at the end of the URL entry. if it has it, delete '&BypassCookie=true' up to and incuding the ampersand '&' that prefixes it.

Actually...


Bypasscookies=true means you WON'T reset the Red icons ever.
That line not existing measn you WILL reset the Red icons EVERYTIME.

What you should do is every time you want to refresh it, don't use that line...otherwise, do use it.

Maybe, but now my profile and preferences are o longer being held...I haveto re-enter my name and password for every post, and when I do post, the browser never returns me to the original board. On top of that, I can't tell (except by the time and date) which posts are recent...
All around, kind of a drag..

Sounds like your cookies are screwed up...bypasscookies doesn't effect remembering passwords.

Someone mentioned something about "brain-farts" and Windows...that's a possibility..somehow, the security settings at the Internet level have been put to the max..now I sure haven't done this...so Brain-fart it must be.
Things seem back to normal, but I won't know for sure until I see more posts up on the board through the day..
My Prefs still haven't materialized, but I think there's hope yet!!!
