Can Not Authenticate Myself As Admin On Board

Post by Woodland Rivers » Sat Oct 01, 2016 1:23 pm

I have a Forum at and I need to revise some administration details and I can log in to the board but it will not allow me to reauthenticate myself to work on administration details. Please help!

Assuming I'm not seeing any cookies being set by your board. Have a read of Knowledge Base - Fixing incorrect cookie settings. I see you're using an iframe and that may also be part of the issue. If none of that helps please fill out the Support Request Template and post it back here to enable us to assist you better.
