    This is GREAT Tweetie. It'll help a lot of people. TOo bad we can't post announcements. Let's just keep bumping this til Lee is able to put a forum-wide thing up. I'll try to copy this to the lounge too.

    Hey thanks a lot. That was bugging me out for a while. Anyway, I just started using Internet Explorer instead of Netscape and that also solved this mystery.

    There's hope!

    After a long trial period, I finally figured it out. Here was my problem--for every little thing clicked on, it kept asking me for my password. Sound similar? Keep reading!

    From posting, to control panel, to PMs to. . . whatever...and after a long wait and bypassing a bunch of screens asking me for my p/w, I finally got a message saying that "no thread was specified, contact the admin" or something like that. So, here's what you do ti fix it.

    1. Go to Tools--Options--Delete Cookies. (this will delete any of the previous "offline saved stuff" from your computer.

    2. Figure out how to get into Control Panel (you will have to put in your password a few times) and click NO on both the "cookie questions."

    3. Save that info. Most likely, it will log you out by now. So, close your Internet Explorer window, and open a new one, and get back on SDN Control Panel. MAKE SURE YOUR CHANGES ARE SAVED. i.e., those two "cookie questions" should still be clicked as "NO."

    4. Close Explorer again.

    5. Open Explorer (we're almost there)

    6. Type in the main website addy: www.studentdoctor.com You've GOTTA do this, do NOT use the page stored in your history. YOu have to type this into the address field.

    7. click on Forums

    8. At the bottom of the screen, type your user name and p/w. And you're in. Your p/w, will somehow will be saved and you will not have to type it in for eternity only to get a blank screen. :laugh:

    I can't take credit for this, ofcourse. Somebody posted similar help like this in the Everyone Forum. Just thought I'd share.

    Finally happy to be posting,
    Tweetie

    no probs!

    I'm going to try and keep this post on the first page at all times, because we are missing quite a few people from our previous boards.

    happy posting!

    ok,
    one more thing I should say. I've noticed that with BOTH my "cookie questions" being answered as "NO", I am having to type my p/w every time I want to check this site.

    There's a way around this. Here's what you do.

    Get back on SDN. Click on any particular forum you want to post in (eg: PreAllo). At the bottom of the screen you should see a place where you can sign in with your user name and password. Type those in. Then, another screen opens up for you, where on the top right hand side it says "Wecome (usename)". Ok, so THIS IS the site you always want to open to, right? Read ahead.....

    With that page open, you go to "Tools" and "OPtions" Under "HOMEPAGE" field, you should see a place where you can type in any http:// address. You don't have to type anything. Just click on "USE CURRENT" and a website address will show up in the field automatically.

    Click on OK.

    This gets the job done. Just to double check, close explorer. Open explorer again. BOOM! Whaddya get? The page you had "saved" as "current page" now opens up as your main page when you start internet explorer. Plus, you're already logged in. :) Ofcourse, this only works if you can handle having SDN as your main opening page.

    Happy posting!

    Thanks, I was having a heck of time trying to figure out why I couldn't post and had to keep entering my password. Whew. Too bad you can't get any replies from people who don't figure out how to fix their settings correctly.... =p

    I am glad it's helping. I can't tell ya how many people it's already helped.
    I seriously need help keeping this on the main page though, since I am not online that much anymore and it's hard for me to keep bumping it up all the time.

    Lemme know if you hear back from Lee. Also, is there a moderator forum anymore? I can't seem to see one. :(

    tweetie,
    I tried the last thing you said (putting the already logged in page as my home page) and it doesnt keep me signed in...does it always keep you logged? It only keeps me signed in for like one or two times, then it reverts to generic.
    oh well, i guess its not toooooo hard to type in my name and password! :)
