The forum software has always been a bit cranky, but usable more or less. The login/logout thing that has come up recently is annoying and I just can't be bothered to post anymore. Even the best forums are struggling with active posters as people move to Facebook. Time for a change of software? Wipe the slate clean and archive all the excellent information that has been posted here over the years. Just my thoughts.

Its not the forum software.. its the redirection coding when log in.
 Got to   Member Panel  near top of the page on the left
Then   Forum Preferences
tick   Automatically log me in when I return to the Forum

Other wise you will be confused and find difficulty logging back in.
 It takes you to your details page, asks for PWs etc (instead of taking you to the page you linked to...)

And gives impression you are not actually logged in.. WHEN YOU ARE.
So dont mess with the PW stuff., go straight to ..
 
   Forum Home   towards top left of the page.

Now you are logged in near every visit.
 I THINK there maybe a security thing that after a period.. (weeks/ months ?) it will log you out .

And when the Admin does a update or does a patch you maybe logged out.

Agree. Very frustrating. Can see sponsors walking away and f.net disappearing.

The log in/out issue has been since we changed to a single site-wide system and understand the frustration. It's related to cookies but the dev team at Tin Soldier don't seem to be able to fix it at this stage I'm sorry to say. We are in the process of shifting everything to new servers and upgrading to latest versions of software across the site and hopefully that will improve performance and sort out the log-in issue.

If anyone is reading this and can't log-in or is having intermittent issues then please contact me directly and I'll get it sorted for you personally. [email protected] or 021-996-955

Glad you still with us Bazza, we would really miss you....well, mostly your tales of near misses and death defying stunts really.

We don't know what we don't need till we've got it

Shall we run a wee sweepstake, Bill?

Cos I reckon given his technical prowess, senior moments and having to have a play and tutu it will be all over in a weeks time and he'll be back crying on Grunta's doorstop again... if he can remember where Grunta lives and what password he used! LOLLOLClapClap
