Is there a problem with board cookies?

Postby Bigfella237 » Fri Feb 21, 2020 5:44 am

Is there a problem with board cookies at the moment or has something changed within the last 24 hours?

I keep getting logged-out, and the forum doesn't remember which posts I've read, basically it's stopped updating cookies.

I'm running the current version of Firefox. In fact, I think it updated itself yesterday, maybe there is a bug in the new FF update? I haven't noticed any problem on any other forums, but then again, this is the only forum I visit that's running this software.

I think I FINALLY fixed the problem...

It appears the forum moved to a secured server (I'm guessing sometime in February?) but my browser only had the old insecure URL in the cookies/permissions list, as did the shortcut on my desktop.

I just changed both URLs from http:// to https:// and now it seems to log me in automatically again! WooHoo! What a PITA that was.

I guess I'd better update my HOSTS file too (I have it set with the forum's IP address so it connects without DNS lookup).

Just to follow-up on the above, I'm still having some problems with this but it's something that needs to be fixed by the admin.

When I get an email advising of a new post in a watched thread, the links contained within that email are still the old "http:" insecure version, and if I click on them I'm back to the problem of needing to log in every time.

I assume there is a setting somewhere in the forum software for links sent in emails to have the secure "https:" prefix? Looks like that needs updating.

TIA,
Andrew
