Re: Log in Automatically?

Well, I think I have the answer to the DELETE issue. We all need to remember that this software has a really good FAQ section, something JForum didn't have. So I went to the FAQ and read about editing and deleting a post. It seems that phpBB3 will only let you edit a limited number of times and you...

Sample of image tags: 8-) It would be nice to be able to embed video. O.K. Jay.

Re: Log in Automatically?

As Jay and others have already discovered, the issue got fixed over at Olypen a few hours ago. The problem was, in fact, the cookie settings in the Forum software. Until now the cookie settings did not reflect usage of our new domain ... http://www.straitmac.org. Now, if you login with the checkbox ...

Re: Log in Automatically?

My understanding of this issue is as follows: The feature is supposed to keep you logged in the event that you quit your browser (without logging out) and then restart your browser at a later time. This is supposed to be accomplished by creating a "cookie" in your browser, that in our case is a .oly...
