Help with forum

Post by Mike Barlow »

My board adds a long number after I login, 94ab662acf162818281f96aa22e5c229...

I can't simply go to index.php, or it logs me out, anyone know how to fix this.

Also, my clock is 5 hours ahead (on forum) so right now GMT-5 Displays 11:19

login:
- That's the session ID, added to the URL because possibly your browser blocks the cookies. Make sure that your browser accepts cookies from your domain (IE 6.0: Privacy settings).

time: check your time settings in Admin Panel --> General Admin --> Configuration as well as in your Profile. Is the server located in a different time zone than you are?

Hmm, the timezones in the profile and admin cp match, and, the session id doesnt display here.. still does at my forum. I'll fool around with the ACP tommorow, but if you know what the prob is, just tell me..


Thanx,
- Mike
