I deleted cookies, but still get logged out after a short time. This is just a report, not a complaint.



Me neither....still have to keep logging all the time..have tried deleting cookies several times now....

Again, this was not a problem before latest software update......

Also, when I clicked 'Add Reply' button to post this message, I got error message, not the first time:

[#20310] Your secure key, used to verify you are posting the topic, did not match the one submitted. Please go back, reload the form, and try again.

So, went back to try and repost this....again, this was not a problem before.....and I am logged in!!!!!

It's happening to quite a few people (including me). Please bear with it until we can get it addressed!

You now need to use the little orange Posted Image button in all cases, including the new content list, to jump to the first unread post.

I am having trouble with "View New Content." Before the update, I could get new posts on my office computer, mark them all read, and then go home, login to FPN on my home computer, and get new content since they were marked read at the office. Now, when I login at home, I get new content only after I logged in.

More 'stuff' for the user to have to do?

But then in this post I was taken to the last post read automatically.

So why just on some threads and not others?

I understand that all messages were deleted, but why can't I send new ones? I thought the deletion was aimed at fixing the problem.

Thanks.

...and a note of sympathy for the moderators, who clearly didn't wish for this sort of thing to be happening.

Amen to that---I've been a mod but never an admin, can hardly imagine what that's like.

Did there used to be a Subscribed Threads button?

I can't find one now and the find posts/topics feature is redundant and ineffecient---it lists not just the first post in the thread/topic but every single one.

There are two problems that I have now:
-the above problem;
- I'm getting logged out more that I want to; as someone metioned above, after logging in I only see few new posts...

Good luck to the admins in fixing these problems!!

ArchiMark, I checked your profile and I see an image. It's a larger version of your avatar.

Also, regarding the logging in, what browser and version are you using? We've had plenty of people successfully able to use IE and the latest Firefox versions...

The problem I had changing avators and photos was fixed a while back per suggestion I received regarding force refresh of browser by holding down Shift key and clicking refresh of web page.

Also, regarding the logging in, what browser and version are you using? We've had plenty of people successfully able to use IE and the latest Firefox versions...


At home I'm mostly using Safari v4.04 on my MacBook, running OSX v10.6.2 (Snow Leopard).....occasionally, I use Firefox too. Still having this issue.

Also, still have issue regarding not seeing all new content and sometimes not being able to post a reply, get that error message described above regarding secure key not matching....

During weekday, I use my lil' Hackintosh and mostly use Firefox on it, but have same issues lately regarding logging in repeatedly...

I am finding the random logging out quite vexing-- it usually happens when I reply using the full editor, but can also occur when returning to a forum after reading a thread.

Thanks for your input...

The weird thing about this problem is that I never had this problem here at FPN forum before the last software upgrade. This problem started immediately after the software upgrade...

I use several laptops that I use at home or take with me during the day, etc.

I use several OS's and browsers; Mac OSX SL with Safari, Mac OSX L with Firefox, Ubuntu 9.04 with Firefox.

I did not change anything on my end from what I was using before the software upgrade....

So, I think the question is what did the latest software upgrade change that can affect at least some of us (see other's posts with this same problem...) and what can the software developers do about it?

I have tried the few suggestions made, such as using the delete cookies button at the bottom of the FPN forum page and then logging in again....nothing has helped at all....


PS. Now, when I clicked the 'Add Reply' button, again I got an error message about my secure key not matching....please go back and reload form.......this is driving me NUTZ!!!!!

wish I had.. I know firefox is nifty, but it was problematic on my dead laptop, so when my DT was repaired after a lightening strike, I opted to stay with IE8.. it's been, to my surprise, very reliable.
hope a solution for your issue turns up soon.

Thanks again for your input....

To clarify, most of the time when I'm having these issues are either on my

MacBook OSX SL using Safari for web browser or

on my lil' Hackintosh Dell Mini 9 running OSX Leopard using Firefox for web browser..

As I recall, I also had same issue on my MacBook when running Firefox instead of Safari, but to make sure, I'm going to use Firefox on it for awhile now and see if I still have same problems......

IE is no longer a viable option on a Mac....as the last version of IE for Mac is very old now...

*********************************************************************

Regarding PM issue in previous post, I notice that there's a Red 'X' to the left of the Conversation that I cannot reply to now. My other conversations do not have this Red 'X" to the left just a gray square...

Why is this Red X there and how can it be undone????

Thanks!

The red X means the other person has deleted this conversation, thus you can't respond to that particular one, but you could start another one.
