    Can't....log...in...

    Help Guys. I seem to be having.. difficulty...loging in lately. I type UN & pass, get welcome niadhf.....then back to "as a new user you should resgister" page.
    again,
    and again, and again....

    I do seem to actually log in about every 5th or 6th, if i have cleared all cache closed i.e. etc. but not on the first try.
    Am i missing something with the new format? or just being an idjit?
    thanks
    Niadh

    What browser and Operating System are you using?

    Enable cookies turned on?

    Haven't heard of anyone else having trouble, so that usually points to a problem at the users end.

    windows 7 i.e.8
    cookies enabked, history and cach cleared when i close windows

    BUT i may have it figured out. that little "keep me logged in" box.....
    if checked, i seem (so far) to actually log in.
    if not, told i am logged in.. but really not.

    So. Inof, possible solution, and help.
    Thanks Bruce
    i have been going NUTS for the last couple wees not being able to log in. Hopefully i will remember that now

    o in the interests of more info. Yes, clicking "stay logged in" seems to actually, log me in. But.... immidiately after logging in, it will show me still as "non member". Until i go to a subforum. Then i am actually "logged in"

    Not sure if that makes sense. And it could be something with my set-up. but if anyone else has such issues, here is what i have found.

    Some cookies don't persist well if there's something wrong with your computers time of day settings. Check your PC's and forum's time zone and other settings. A few weeks ago was the end of Daylight Savings Time and something may be hosed up.

    I have that same issue at work when I use IE8.

    I never have this problem at home when I use Firefox.
