Does anyone know why IE won't keep me logged in on this site? As soon as a log in and change pages, I get logged out. Cookies are enabled, and I have no issues with other discussion forums. Both my computers have this issue. Firefox works fine though.
I use mac and safari, and only very rarely lose my log in. As in every couple days, and then I kinda think it has something to do with other things I do. Although I know very very little about computers.
Programming and web development isn't really my thing, but I did have to tinker with it back in college. With my limited knowledge the first thing that comes to mind, is bitog using sessions instead of cookies for some reason?
I did some digging, and it looks like it's a problem with the new version of the board's software, UBB 7.5.8. As mentioned above, a "cookie" stores your login information on your pc. It sounds like UBB 7.5.8 sets cookies to expire after 7 days, no matter what you change that variable to. I'm looking around for a solution, but it sounds like there might not be one until UBB releases an update.
Sadly, some of us are "stuck" with IE due to large corporate lethargic IT departments ...
At work I have practically zero control over my computer. I understand why, but that does not make it any less painful.
