  • Losing my login

    Newbie here. Is it normal for me to have to log back in every time I switch to a new category and want to reply, or go to my profile to make changes ? This seems to have started last nite and has continued numerous times this evening. It could be my computer settings or I simply just don't know what I am doing yet
    Thanx

    Robert,
    It is not normal for me. Why? I have no idea. I am the ultimate computer doofus.

      No it's not normal, but if you contact Bob Duncan he can direct you to Rob, who is their computer wizard and can fix you up. He has helped me many, many times!! GOOD LUCK!!

          Hi Sawduster,
          It probably has to do with your security settings. The board uses a "Cookie" to keep you logged in. If you changed your security settings, your computer won't let the board put a cookie on your computer.

          I keep my security settings at medium or medium high and it works perfectly for me.

          If you still have problems, please let me know!

            Last night. I made some changes including the new name. The changes may have corrupted your cookie. Try deleting your cookies. This should reslove the problem. If not let me know.

              cookies

              I am still having the problem and I am 99% sure it is the cookie issue. I do not, as a general rule, accept cookies. I know I can customize my cookie acceptance but my question is this: Will allowing cookies on the main SSW website correct the problem, or must I allow the cookies on the board as well ? If so, what is the address to use when I add it to the list ? Before or after I log in or does it matter ?
              Thanx for the help, it is frustrating having to log in multiple times in one session

                  Thanx for the info. I do not recall seeing those options when I registered. In the link you referenced it says I can change these settings but I have been through the entire user CP and cannot find where

                    You won't find them on the User CP. Cookies are controlled through the security settings on your internet browser. If you're using Microsoft Internet Explorer, got to Tools-Internet Options and click the tab marked Privacy. Your Privacy Setting is probably set too high and needs to be reduced. Mine is at 'Medium' and everything works fine.

                    If you're using a different browser such as Firefox or Opera, it's a slightly more complicated procedure which I'll discuss if you want me to. Nevertheless, I find the versatility of these browsers makes them far superior it MSIE (IMHO ).

                      Got it fixed

                      Thanx for the tips Gill. I was set to medium but I don't, as a general rule, accept cookies. After reading your post I remembered that I could customize that. I just needed to put the site on the " allow " list. I was a little puzzled as to whether I needed to do the whole site or just the board. I tried the main adress and it has worked just fine since.
                      Thanx again

                        So after much debating, I bought a Sawstop table saw--the 36" contractor version, and now have a roll-your-eyes story too.
                        I got a few discounts from my favorite hardwood store for buying from them. Yay!

                        Bruce and the tech from Laguna finally caught up with each other after almost 2 weeks of phone tag. Bruce ran the sander for the tech and after checking a few things, it was determined it’s the bushing, probably. They are going to send a bushing for Bruce to replace it. If he has a problem replacing...

                        Bruce lets it soak in on the cardholders, takes 24 hrs. I let everything drip for a few minutes then wipe excess off. 50/50 takes longer to dry than 40/60. I usually move everything upstairs and turn the ceiling fan on to to help it soak in. This finish takes 3-4 days to dry enough to take to shows....
