    Question Trouble Logging in

    Sometimes when I try to log in, I get the thank you for logging in page, then when it redirects me i get the the page with the login boxes and cannot view any threads. I keep trying and get the same thing repeatedly. Then I noticed in the list of people online: My name. So I'm logged in but not. Is this my punishment for using the "x" to close the window when I leave instead of logging out? Something to do with cookie setting? Anybody?

    If you are selecting ''remember me'' then a cookie should be stored so you get straight back in even after a close of browser.

    Hard to tell exactly what is going on but - best thing initially is to clear your internet cache and cookies (thru internet options) .... close browser (browsers) and then start afresh by logging in.

    Also - use a bookmark as http://www.defensivecarry.com/vbulletin/index.php to bring you straight to index page.

    Try this and report back.

    It's because you haven't sent me a case of ammo yet.

    I'll PM you my address and then once I get it you'll be fine...

    Chris, It just now happened, tried both with and without "remember me" checked. My last log in I did use remember me, but this computer (not my own) never does remember me. wierd thing though: I clicked on rstickle in the online people list and got his profile and it said welcome lbrombach in the upper right corner. From there I can view my new posts page. This has worked only sometimes.

    I can't clear anything now, as this isn't my computer. I'll try at home though, I've had the problem there too, infrequently.

    Thanks.


    .02: Please do get me your address. I do have a box of loads to send you, courtesy of my dog.

    Just trying the obvious, if it's not your computer, are you sure it's set up to accept cookies? Check that out someplace in the depths of the browser prefs.

    Do this and let me know if it works. This sounds like another cookie problem.

    That's a new one I haven't heard, but could be a cookie related problem. Do this and see if it clears up the problem. If not, I have to say I have no clue since nobody else has reported a similar problem....

    1. Log out of the forum, but leave your browser open.
    2. Delete all of your cookies.
    3. Delete all cached files.
    4. Close your browser.
    5. Open your browser, come back to the forum and log in.

    My method is quicker, less to do.

    1. Buy a case of ammo.
    2. Send it my way.
    3. Wait.

    OK.

    Setup to accept cookies.
    tried Bumpers' suggestion.
    Same problem. It seems (today at least) that I can reliably log in only by using "remember me." Then I have to click on a person in the people listing. once I see ther profile, I can click on "new posts" and presto. I can live with this, if it always works. Color me confused, though.

    I think there will be a lot of folks the same color! Just sounds weird.

    Let me look into it. Somebody else reported a problem they were experiencing that is related to cookies (and this is) that was not a problem on the other domain. I'll see if I can find an answer....

    I've made a slight change in the cookie domain setting. For those that have been experiencing problems, please let me know if this resolves your problem. If you start experiencing a problem, back up to post #7 and see if that resolves it. I can see no other configuration options that would remedy the original problem....
