    Forum not remembering my password

    I changed my password recently and now the forum's not logging me in automatically anymore. This is just an inconvenience, but I'm wondering if anything can be done.

    ive had that happen before on other boards. you can go into your browsers cookies and delete anything pertaining to tpc. then when you try to log back in a new cookie will be created. might help.

    Be sure to hit the "remember me" option when logging in, or the forum will only keep you logged in for a couple hours.

    Did this start with the move? I was surprised when a lot of people didn't report this issue after we moved as it's been a problem every time we switch IP's. You have to clear out cookies to fix it. How old is your browser?

    It was a cookie thing. I thought the forum would take care of it, but had to go and clear the old cookies myself... it worked on my desktop last night, but I'm gonna try it again when I get back from work, as I'm posting with my laptop now.

    My desktop is on IE9 at least. My laptop is on IE8

    Floobosaurus is all about the fat and lazy. IE has been fixed, and therefore, shall continue to be allowed to perform its duties.
