Ok, I've modified the configuration to use smtp mail instead of php mail. It might fix the error - or it might just change the error message! I haven't actually seen the error myself so please let me know what happens. Posting here is best, I'll keep an eye open for any feedback.

Gary - In Internet Explorer, click on 'Tools' then 'Internet Options'.

Click on 'Clear History' and maybe 'Delete Files' too - this will clear your computer's memory, it seems to be reloading an older version of the site it has cached.

Refreshing

Post by David P »

Mark's advice is spot on. But don't forget, too, that "Ctrl-Refresh" (you may have already tried that...) is excellent at flushing out latest updates through cache servers (a kind of aggressive version of the standard "Refresh"), so always also worth a try.

Anyone who's been following the mail error message problem - no promises but it may now be fixed. If you see any more error messages when posting, please tell us by posting here.

Plus, I've only just noticed that the large annoying 'PHP' logo has gone - thanks again Mr Balcombe.

Swiching from one forum to another

Post by mharrall »

If I switch from Inland to Sea & Surf I have to log in again. Is this supposed to happen? Or am I doing something wrong?

Mark and Steve,

Thanks for your suggestions, home system is set up to automatically blitz files and cache on shutdown and was working OK. Did a bit of digging and looks like in AOL 9.0 there is a remote caching setup too. Have blitzed this and now working fine.

For Martin, if when you log in, you tick the third box, then you don't have to keep logging in. I was foxed over this too initially.

staying logged in

Post by Will »

phpBB doesn't keep you logged in automatically in the same way ezBoard does... so that if you are inactive for (roughly) 15-20 minutes or so, you will find you have become logged out - as Gary said, there is an option to stay logged in until you click the 'logout' link (same as ezBoard was)...

simply moving from the Sea forum to the Inland forum alone shouldn't cause you to log out...

I've set the board so it won't drop your login for 99999 seconds (however long that is).

Another thing which may help you stay logged in is...

go to 'Tool' in Internet Explorer
select 'Internet Options'
select 'Privacy'
select 'edit'
type 'guidebook.free-online.co.uk' into the box
click 'allow'

....that basically means that your computer will accept anything from this site without question. As you all should.

Bizarre, worked after blitzing everything this morning, wouldn't this evening, until I did a refresh on the menu bar.
Working fine now, but one of the quirks of MS windowing, you need to refresh every frame individually.

All the above still applies....except that instead of 'guidebook.free-online.co.uk' you now need to do it for the new address, 's106156335.websitehome.co.uk'

Sorry for the inconvenience.
