Anytime I get a email notification that a subscribed thread has been replied to, everytime I click the link in the email it doesnt take me to the new post but instead wants me to register because I have exceeded the amount of post I can view. So basically it doesnt regognize that im logged on to the site.

It's a browser (cookie) related issue... Once you close your browser the cookie expires, suppose to anyway. Clicking on an email link reopens the browser, thus prompting you to login.

Let me guess... your using Internet Explorer...?

Try a Better Browser (Mozilla Firefox Link) :smt023
IE is a horrible browser. At least 70% of the updates you get for Windows is to plug holes that they didn't get right the last 10 times. It's pretty similar in appearance..Unless you go to adding skins to it but that's another post on another forum..Much more secure and a lot more stable. It's worth looking at. Most the people I know have been off IE now for a while. They bundle that POS in Windows and hope you never look for another one.

While I didn't have any functional problems with IE, I dumped it because it was so slow to load and run. Too much crap when I just wanted a window to the 'net.

Using Google's Chrome browser now.

on my PC's, I use firefox exclusively and on my Mac's I use either Firefox, Camino, or Safari, but Firefox is the best!

Heh, you can save yourself a lot of time not getting Windows updates that are mostly related to IE issues. I haven't used IE for years. and I get what updates I need at softwarepatch.com where you can actually download the patches and keep them for later use if needed. They will try to explain the update is in terms that are easier for the layman computer user can understand better. No need to bother with the Microsoft intrusion system that must have liked that movie ET because they always trying ot get the OS to phone home :anim_lol:
