Solving issues with forum login

Although not a common problem, issues with getting logged into the site are extremely frustrating so here are a few pointers to fix login problems.

This is generally caused by the cookie stored in your browser and the site software getting out of sync, rather than a password problem, so please try this before requesting a new password. If you do not know your password or are not sure then by all means try a password reset or contact me via the email address below.

The best way to solve this is to force both your browser and the site to 'forget' your login temporarily.

For Internet Explorer, try these instructions before using either of the links below:

  • Press F12 to bring up the IE developer tools
  • Click on the Cache menu
  • Click Clear cookies for domain
  • Restart IE and try again.

For other browers, or if the above does not work:

Arrow You can do this with the page at www.defender2.net/delete_forum_cookie.php


Click the big red link towards the bottom underneath the diagnostic info and allow the page to do its thing and reload.

PLEASE NOTE that this will log you out. If you do not know your password or are not sure please contact me via the email address below.

If you continue to have problems, do email me: martin@defender2.net  1988 90 Td5 NAS soft top Cool

Very Happy Martin
Thank you for the login fix.
All I tried to do was to update my profile.
Not sure what I did wrong but will now leave it with the old info......

I have a problem where I log in, but am then logged out straight away, log in again and I stay logged in, but all the new post info etc is gone. This happens every time irrespective of what browser I use - any ideas? 2011 110 USW

Usually that's related to a specific browser, but have you tried the delete tool above to see if this clears it?
