Why is it so that I have to re-enter login details each time I wish to use ExplorOz??
I think this wasn't so a while back, so guess I have done something to stuff it up.
It used to remember me, but lately not so..Any ideas??

Well apart from the obvious things like ticking the box that says remember me, and also if you clear the temp files you will need to relog on...................no idea lol

Hi Signman

If you tick the little "remember my details" box when you next sign in then that should save your details?

Signman

Have you ticked the "Remember Me" option when you log in?

If so, locate the ExplorOz cookies and delete them, then log back in and make sure the option is ticked. Some times cookies can become corrupted (we have this problem with one of our systems at work) and don't get overwriten or updated and as a result status is not updated.

Also check that your browser is allowing cookies from the EO site.

cheers,
Sam.

Actually, in regards to deleting cookies and checking the browser cookie security setting, reverse the order. Deleting cookies would be a last ditch effort.

Yup..I tick the AUTO LOGON which I assume is the REMEMBER ME
Just tried it again..and when I reopened straight away showed Not Logged On so had to go thru the logging on procedure.. and that was with no other changes on the puter
How do I check that the browser is allowing cookies from the EO site. ???
Thanks...

Another thought,

if you have any other 3rd party internet security software running, this might also be blocking the cookies being created.

cheers,
Sam.

In Internet Explorer, in the Tools Menu, under Internet Options (also accessed from the Internet Control Panel) there is a privacy tab if you click on the Sites button, you can enter the address of the site and click allow.

There is a similar setting in Firefox under Tools -> Options and in the Privacy section there is a cookies option

No worries!

Its a good idea to keep the security level up and just allow the sites you want. Otherwise you can end up with a variety of junk.

cheers,
Sam.

Hi again Sam
I hope I'm not being a pain in the butt...but..what do you mean by keeping security levels up. How can I censor sites and keep out the 'junk' ...

No worries at all.

What I mean, is that as i mentioned, with both Internet Explorer and Firefox, there are differing levels of security in regards to cookies. From the high end of town where you can simply block all cookies down to the level of allowing everything through. The trick is to find the happy medium depending on your browsing habits. If you look in IE Tools->Internet options -> Privacy tab, on the tab, as you move the slider up and down, it gives a description of the level of blocking that each setting gives.

I noticed on Firefox that its more limited in what options you can have.

So depending on your browsing habits, would depend on whether you stop all sites from creating cookies and only allow in certain ones or whether you just allow it all in.

Its just that some web sites create cookies that have a malicious nature to them.

I use IE and have my Privacy level set to Medium and this seems to work for me.

Hope this helps. If you want more info, drop me a message.

cheers,
Sam
