Help, I have tried for 4 hrs to get this laptop to talk to reef central. rc comes up, I can view posts but when I try to post bam sends me to log on page. So I log on go to a fourm page try to post and bam back to the logg on again. This computer (desk top) works great as always. I figure there it something abled or dis abled that should not be. I give UNCLE. Any one been thru this or has the expertise to reccomend a fix...................

Not sure I completely follow you, but make sure this is checked yes in "options."

Automatically login when you return to the site? (uses cookies) yes


When you're on other sites with a login ID is it asking you to login every time you revisit the page?

You may want to check your cookie settings. In explorer click on "Tools" uptop. Go down to "Internet Options...". Under the "Privacy" tab make sure you are allowing cookies.

This is assuming you use internet explorer... You could even try another internet browser like FireFox: http://www.mozilla.com/

I'm gonna have to agree with TitanFan. Your security settings are probably just a little too strict, which is kind of a pain in the butt. On one side, it's fine to reduce security settings for reputable sites like RC, but for a lot of other sites, reducing your security settings opens you up to nasties from other sites.

lol.

go get some firefox extensions. Adblock and tabbed browser preferences are my top picks. :)

THen only use firefox, unless some stupid site uses ActiveX... in that case you're forced to use IE.

I've just started using Firefox and it is definitely where it's at. I'm not as anit-IE as it would appear some are, but Firefox has some really user friendly perks (my personal favorites being the search bar and the bookmark toolbar with the automatic headline updating). Now I can keep up with the news and you gotta love espn.com
