Exclamation Is the forum not keeping you logged in?

If the forum is not keep you logged in, this is the fix you must do please:

The website moved to a different url. The old site was at wristtwisters.com/forum and the new site is just at wristtwisters.com so your computer is storing 2 sets of cookies. Log out of the forum, clear out your browser's cache, cookies, and all temporary data. Then log back in, check remember me, and you will be good to go.

So....
You want me to clear the cookies for all other web sites, too?


Not today, thanks.

Both Firefox and IE allow you to delete cookies on a per-domain basis.

True.
However, the procedure described would clear ALL cookies for ALL web sites, not just for WT. Many people will be quite upset if they lost all cookies for all sites. I'm one of them. There are a few sites I visit that require an elaborate initial logon procedure which establishes a cookie that is part of the site's security. Deleting those cookies will require a phone call to re-establish them.

The procedure is a little more involved to clear the cookie for just one domain, and a low percentage of users know how to do this. At least some users will be wondering what kind of cookie.... Chocolate chip maybe?

BTW - Deleting just the Wristtwister's cookie works well. It seems to keep me logged in when I re-visit the site.
For those using the current released version of Firefox, go to TOOLS -> OPTIONS and choose the Privacy tab. Click on the "Show Cookies" button. Scroll down to and highlight the WristTwisters entry in the list. Click on "Remove Cookies" - do not click on "Remove All Cookies".

There is a similar procedure for those using Internet Explorer.

Yes...but if you are using FireFox and having it remember passwords, then you can just check all the boxes except Delete Saved Passwords. Then any site you go to with a Username and Password will automatically fill them in for you so all you have to do is check the Remember Me box and click Log In. From then on you are set. Small price to pay.

I clear my cookies and all temporary files a couple times a month on all 4 computers. I have 4 forums, a few tech sites, and a few other sites (pandora radio, facebook, etc). Small price to pay for cleaning up the junk.

Press Any Key To Continue.

Yeah, you can just clear out WT cookies only for any cookies associated with this domain name. I personally clear out all cookies, but I do not clear out all saved password data so my logins are still kept good.

For those using Firefox:

After clearing your cookies from Firefox, you need to also clear any saved passwords from the Security section of your FF Tools->options tab at the top of the page. After this, close and restart your browser, then log in and tell FF to remember passwords. It should prevent any further unwanted log-outs.

Actually im finding out the problem may be with firefox. I just upgraded to the 3.0.10 version and it's not saving any login info for any site. It seems to be a problem a lot of people are having. I tried a fix but it did not work. Hopefully it can be resolved, it's a pita to log in manually every time.

If the info in those cookies is lost, then the logon procedure becomes much more involved and lengthy. It is not a simple matter of having UserNames & passwords remembered.

I'm using Firefox 3.0.10 and I have not noticed any problems with it saving logon info.Of course, I did not clear all saved passwords. That sounds like using a hammer when a flyswatter is needed.

You can delete saved password for just the WristTwisters site in a similar manner as deleting the cookie for the site.

I did edit the WristTwister's link (in Bookmarks) to the new URL and saved the password for that, however.

Is anyone still having these problems? I've tried everything mentioned and I still get logged out like every ccouple of minutes. I've even tried all my different browsers, At home I use Safari, or Camino. At work I use firefox. Even when I try using my Iphone I get logged out all the time. I don't get it, it doesn't happen on any other forum or website I log into?? what gives?

I am fairly new to FF so I thought that just clearing the cookies would do but it is logical to think that the saved password was for the other WT URL so... Thanks ridge, it appears that it also worked for me.

So far so good.

Lemonhead, if you are not kidding, Mozilla Firefox is just another browser, with less complications and more secure than Microsoft Explorer... google it.

Ok, Ridge already provided a good solution to this and if I was able to make this work being a monkey... you guys can do it also.

If you are Using Firefox... do this:

Click on Tools/Options/Privacy tab/Cookies - Exceptions... inside the exceptions windows you need to search for "wristtwisters", delete any and all cookies for it... use "REMOVE SITE" and NOT "REMOVE ALL SITES", click "CLOSE" and you are back at the previous window.

Next... Click on Security/Password - Saved Passwords and under the little Search window do a search for Writtwisters and Remove the passwords for it. DO NOT USE "Remove All".

Close the browser and start a new one, go to W/T and folow the process to log in (type in your nickname and password), click on the "Remember me" little tab option as well, otherwise, you will need to login in everytime... THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT!!!

You should be golden and good to go.

Now, if you are using the dreaded and bloated Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 7 or heavens forbid, 8... do this:

Click on Tools/Internet Options/Security/Trusted Sites/Sites and remove W/T from there. If there is nothing there to remove, click Close and you'll be back at the previous window. close the browser

Now, go to your cookies Folder and get rid of any cookies that pertain to w/t and viola... you are a whole new person again (except for the fact that your IE Browser sucks big donkey balls but that not here nor there!!! )

WOW... don't I feel like a Million Bucks now!!!

Oh yeah and, if I have forgotten a step (or two), either help me out and add it or... BITE ME!!!
