Default Xl forum whacked ..

I have been logged in two days in a row, w/o signing out, when I’m on a thread and I click on a second page this window comes up tell me I’ve exceeded my blah blah blah allowed pages..and tells me to log in...on that page above where you sign in and password, those are blank, when I click the back arrow to go to the first page of the thread it shows that I am indeed logged in.....several months ago I tried contacting the admin about a password reset, I went through the process and waited for a reply in my email, to no avail, I did this several times ...is this forum dying?

Try using a different search engine. I use Mozilla Firefox & Google, Explorer always seems to give me problems with certain websites.

indeed, explore is not very good and unsupported. could be the servers you go through are balking at it, man i trashed explore even before it was dead. best thing to do is just log out and close your browser after surfing. when you reconnect, a new handshake will occur and you should be able to run with it.

I use Internet Explorer, and have never had a problem with it. I also very rarely log out.

I don’t use exploder, I’m using my iPad with Safari, never had an issue before the password problem, also, what’s with the forum wanting users to pay using PayPal, I tried signing up but PayPal said I haven’t used PayPal for several years, so I cancelled the transaction...

Funny thing too, on my MacBook I hadn’t ever signed out and the forum worked flawlessly, I’ve tried Tapatalk but didn’t like the format. I rarely use my MacBook because my brother has commandeered it, he bought an hp laptop a year or so ago for two hundred bucks new but every time he fires it up it wants to update during any time online....lol...so it sits in a closet next to his Acer laptop that has a bad keyboard from old beers....lol.

What do you mean by 'a password reset'? If you want to change your password, just change it.

The issue may not be how long you are logged onto the forum, but whether you have recent activity on the current session of linking to the forum - It may be dropping that particular session (each login produces a separate session) due to lack of activity...

And using the BACK button definitely uses data that is stored in your cache (as most users set it not to refresh every time you visit a page)...

explorer is dead from microsoft, no support. it was full of open holes to be hacked and they got tired of making patches, their newer browser they can repair on the fly and even use your computer and resources to propagate it. it was good while it lasted but wasn't as secure as others. if you run it, better have a GOOD malware/virus protection program. i use startpage (via firefox) and bitdefender. i also am using windows 7 since i can do anything with the system, good luck using 10, getting like IOS in protecting system files unless there is a jailbreak for it.

fell in under mr. relax, he speaks proven truth!
i also proxy anywhere in the world and sometimes, a server will forbid you if you pick a barred location. london > 3 keys > las vegas. so far, the forum accepts all of my fake IP's.
