What is wrong with this **** forum all of a sudden? As if it's not bad enough that there's usually 4000 users and a several minute wait for each page to load, it now keeps coming up with the barred/ not logged in page. It's just taken me half an hour to find the last thread I contributed to, during which time I must have re-logged on a dozen or more times. The same with the search function, it kept saying string not found when the string is in the text. Just as I was beginning to think the thread itself had been deleted, up it popped for no apparent reason! The same thing has happens when I post, after typing for half an hour, I lose the lot because it says 'not logged in' when I hit the submit button!

    You have to make sure you tick the "remember me" thing when logging in or if the forum is idle for about 15 mins, it logs you out.

    I was using the board continuously without any break! I've been using this forum for years without ticking the remember me box. It's taken 3 logins just to post this!

    If it took ages to find a thread you posted in, click Edit Options in the User CP menu. From there you can select various prefences, one of which is...

    Subscribed Threads - set this to "no email notification" or the other options if you want emails each time someone posts. That way, you can log in and click on "Quick Links > Subscribed Threads" on the bar menu at the top. It makes life easier, I didn't know about subscribed threads till a few months back. :o

    It logs me out, but not that fast !

    Normally I simply log in again and continue from where I was interrupted.

    Might be a good idea to right click & copy before you post, just in case to avoid a session of elbow chewing.
