View Full Version : Forum login issue

October 30th, 2006, 10:50 PM
Not sure where to post this.
I am having trouble with my laptop and this forum, (in fact most vbuilitin forums).
I log in, I click remember me, etc, it remembers for about two pages then logs me out. I can't post, can't search, every time I'm asked for my log in, its getting rather irritating now.
Using Firefox Cleared Cache, cookies, etc, no effect.

Any help / suggesting welcomed

I think you disabled cookies.
Check the edit >> preferences and the privacy tab.

Thanks Kate
I've checked the setting for privacy, its enabled and the option "for site that set it" is ticked also. I clicked on view cookies and it thee are 2 set for ubuntuforum but it still refuses to let me use the forum.

I love your signature by the way :)

Yep, same here. I can only access the forum on this machine where I am already logged in. I've tried on 2 other machines and it says that I've successfully logged in then returns as a non-logged in user.

Must be a vBulletin thing, I'm on 2 other forums which use this software and have the same issue, its very odd.
