    Login problems!!!

    Hello AO

    First of all happy new year,
    im not sure if this has been posted before.....thing is i have to log on like 30 times a day. Every time i read a thread and want to move on, post a reply, start a thread etc it tells me that im not logged in. Within a matter of seconds, like now for example with me writing this thread here, by the time i finish it and click the "submit new thread" button it will tell me that im not logged in. Is that an error on my side or the server's side (or even any other side).

    Im not idle for more than 3 - 10 mins.

    Thanx for any advice

    Check under "edit site options" and make sure you are browsing the site using cookies. If not, turn it on, that should help.

    You may want to try to delete your AO cookies, the next time you connect to AO you will get a new cookie(s). This may clear up the problem if you have a corrupted cookie.

    Indeed that seemed to have been the problem. I jusr deleted all the cookies my browser had stored. Thank you very much for your time and i apologize if my problem was a bore (lol, i just finished reading in the tutorial section the thread about "how to ask questions" )

    Thanks alot again.

    yea man, this was discussed before, but anyway, i fixed my problem with it by just going into site options and select yes for "Automatically login when you return to the site? (uses cookies)"
    and that fixed it for me.
