    I have a question about logging in and staying logged in to both here and the temp boards at the same time. I can't seem to do it with both open in the same browser. It's not a problem as such as I use two browsers, but I was wondering if this was a bug or something else?

    I don't think that it's possible to be logged on to both at the same time. Probably something to do with two forums on the same domain using the same software.

    Yeah, it's a cookie issue. When I was doing stuff both here and on the temp boards I used Firefox for one and IE9 for the other. (IE9 was a pain as I normally use Firefox.)

    That makes sense, although I'm now curious as to whether or not I'd stay logged in if I changed the passwords so they match. [face_thinking]

    Nope. I speak from experience.

    I haven't tried being on both boards at the same time but when I work on these boards on Google Chrome, it won't keep me logged in. I have no problem on either Safari or Android. Haven't tried IE yet, but it seems to be a Google Chrome issue.

    Well, it can't possibly be a Google Chrome issue because I'm on Google Chrome and not getting that problem. :p It might be related to how you have your cookies and cache set up.

    Ah, OK. Should I clear my cookies and cache?

    That'd be my first suggestion. It's kind of a delightful game of guess and check, unfortunately.

    Clearing the cache and deleting cookies appears to have worked.
