Tired of chucking cookies

Post by Montreal Wanderer » Tue Nov 28, 2006 12:13 am

Everytime I leave the front page for the second time to go anywhere on the site I get the hack message. I am told to delete the cookies for this site. I don't know how to do that so I have to delete all cookies which is a royal pain. Now I can avoid the front page and stick to the forums where there is no such problem - or can it be fixed?

I am trying to sort this now, hopefully it should be sorted in 10 mins.

If you have any problems you'll know why.

Hello, Monty. Me too. It's a strange situation.

This morning (my time) I popped into the main page - no problems. As I hadn't read the Arsenal preview (sorry) I read that. Then I attempted to read the match review - "Hack attempt". Urk. I then tried reading the article at the top of the archives with the same result. Zapped the cookies, shut down my browser and came back in; logged on. Then tried to access the forum (through the link and via my bookmark/favourites) - "Hack attempt". Zapped cookies again.

Logged back in and came straight to the forum - all is fine.

Perhaps keveh could advise exactly what cookies (by name) are deposited on our computers? It is possible that I'm missing one somewhere, though I have had no problems for the previous few days.

I am certainly not going to delete all my cookies as some of them are important to me.

Any advice, keveh?

Hmm, now I've got a message at the top of my screen (on preview) advising me that I need phpBBStyles' latest version. I'll download that and see what happens.

Darn it, the message has disappeared. I'll try another preview and see if it comes back.

No. Perhaps keveh's fix has done the job.

Back shortly.


*edit*

Seems to be working properly now. Thanks, keveh, if it was you who sorted it.

Keveh...had I seen this thread, do you really think I would have made my own? :crazy:

No, so learn to read before you do.

It's not exactly the busiest forum to keep up with.

Hi Dujon:

Yes, keveh fixed the odd gibberish, etc. I haven't dared check if the front page problem is fixed - but I expect so. Upgrading software is never simple and often leaves residual problems to be sorted one by one.

Oh - well at least I can navigate to the front page and back without chucking cookies. :wink:

The last time ( a few days ago) when it went funny during the upgrade, the quotes also went weird. It kept changing 'quote="keveh" ' to 'quote ="/keveh/" ' - (i.e. adding two gratuitous slashes). I could only make it work then by removing the = "keveh". Related bug? :?

Ahh, the old "change the PC clock to make everyone think you're busy working through the night" trick. I'm not falling for that one again. :wink2:

I don't see what you're complaining about. You're going to get less problems with your computer if you regularly clean up the rubbish that is left on your computer by internet sites. http://www.ccleaner.com is a good program to use for it and for what, you have to log in every so often. Hardly that bad now is it.

Cookies on my computer are removed around twice a day probably more depending on how much i'm using the computer and i'm getting less problems as a result of it. I recommend clearing them more often to be honest.

Well, Mar, the problem wasn't with my computer. There are cookies that I want to keep so, for example, I automatically login to TW. I was just reporting a situation to keveh - it has now been fixed. I have no complaints. :D

I overcome that problem by controlling which cookies I keep permanently, which for a session and those to always be denied. It saves cleaning up all the time.
