What actions did you take (updating your board; installing a MOD, style or extension; etc.) prior to this problem becoming noticeable? I logged out, tried to register but the anti spam code wasn???t recognised even though I kept entering it correctly.
Please describe your problem. I can???t log in as admin or register as a new user. If I try to login it just defaults to the main page without actually logging in. If I try to login with the wrong credentials it???ll show a message saying as such so I???m definitely logging with correct password.

Thanks for the responses. Seems after I closed the browser and cleared the cache it now works. Will keep your points in mind.

Cheers

There are no ‘threads’ in phpBB, they are topics.
