I installed my forum in September, and I have been experiencing this problem with not being able to login to administration page on and off since then. I don't have anything in the cookies fields, except the 3600, if i change anything when i do manage to get in, after i go back to the board, and try again and i still have the same browser open it causes this problem...only figured this out today whilst scanning this thread, and manipulating what i changed in the database with no luck...so i thought i would try putting in the cookies, which i didn't know how they were meant to be set, but do now as skybee has put them up.
All this said, I have had a lot of spammers..so thought it might be due to them, but now i see it's a common problem and has been for a long time...
Question, my admin says theres a new version, does anyone know if this problem has been addressed in this new release?
Oh and what is cookie secure? and why would it be disabled? cheers
