Hi Dearest,

 

I seem to be being logged out again each time I disconnect from the internet (and after a timeout). I don't know if this is a known problem affecting everybody, but I thought I'd just log it in case you didn't know about it. (It originally happened the day the changes were made to the board but you resolved it at the time - it seems to be back now)

 

The site is looking FAB by the way!!!

I don't think that this is a problem. I think that this may well be part of the new security features for these new boards.

 

Most sites will log you out after a period of inactivity or disconnect. That's for your security as well as the boards.

 

And it will help you remember your password if you're ever offline for any length of time :)

Thanks Mary :)

 

My ISP is being a real pain at the moment and for the last 6 weeks has been disconnecting me every 5 mins during peak usage times. (They need more capacity, I think). It means I have to log in to PS every few mins at the moment (often midway through a post), which is a bit of a pain but not PS fault . I'm sure the logging in will be fine once my ISP finally fix the problem - I will be changing ISPs soon at this rate if they don't hurry up!!!!

 

I wonder whether it would be possible to have a remember me option on the board?

Hi............I have a really strange problem.........I can move around the board, read any threads EXCEPT the current page of What's Your Symptom Today.As soon as I scroll down to read the bottom post I am thrown out of the site. It is so unusual because I can go anywhere else, and even post ..... :unsure::blink:

Any Suggestions???

Is it me or is anybody else having problems with the site when going through AOL? For a few days I have been unable to log into the forums, as it keeps asking for my user name, and password, although I have just logged in! I got onto the site by using Internet Explorer, but I have always had no trouble with going through on AOL. Also the heading 'View all new posts' has disappeared when I go through AOL. I am getting totally confused - not that it takes a lot, these days!

I can't log in under AOL either. When I do, I get a message that says I am now logged in as dcamp, but then an error message appears. I can log in when I use IE. This is just a recent thing. Started yesterday. Hopefully, it won't last forever. Anyway, I'm just glad I can get on using IE. I'd hate to miss a day of posts.

 

Have a good day all. Donna

I was having lots of problems last week too. I was using Firefox and AOL. I downloaded Netscape and it seems to be working. Hope you get your problem solved.

I've belonged to AOL for, oh, about 15 years. I've never liked their browser. I've had problems with it not just with this board, but with many sites.

 

Read the announcement I put up the other day for AOL users at: http://www.power-surge.com/php/forums/index.php?act=announce&f=2&id=14

Was there a problem with the "Introduce yourself" thread yesterday, around 5:30 pm, PST? If the source wasn't Power Surge, I have a problem somewhere else...

 

Yes, there was a problem with the Introduce Yourself topic. A hacker had posted something pornographic that had some code embedded inside the message (unable to view except by Administrators). It was removed. It may have been just about the time you were reading the Introduce Yourself topic.

 

Bear in mind also that we run regular virus scans on this board. One of the things that concerns me with people uploading pictures to their profiles is that they don't run virus and spyware scans on their computers before they upload pictures to this board / server. This, in turn, causes problems for the board. This is one of the things about this new upgraded version of the board that I don't like. I know people like to put their pictures up, but please don't upload from a computer that's NOT CLEAN -- not that any of you would intentionally do that, but regular maintenance of your machine should be a priority. Besides, your computers will work better, too, if you run those scans, clean out your temporary Internet files, cookies (where all the spyware goes) and defragging.

 

In order to work the way it's supposed to, a computer, like a car, needs regular tune-ups.

 

PLEASE DO REGULAR VIRUS AND SPYWARE SCANS BEFORE UPLOADING PICTURES TO YOUR PROFILES!

I got kicked out of the Board the other day just after I scrolled down on the Introduce yourself. The Power Surge screen disappeared and what popped up was pictures of naked men from the waist down. Needless to say I was shocked out of my tree. My husband was beside me on the couch and I said in a shocked voice " Look what just popped up on my menopause board!"

We both screamed with laughter when he said "Is that what you look at on your menopause site?" :lol::lol::lol:

 

Anyways, we had a good laugh about it and I am glad that it was straightened out by the board administrator.

Thank you for your response, and yes, that was the problem to which I alluded. Fortunately, I had cleaned out my cookies and done general maintenance here only the day before. No damage was done this end. (Man, there's stuff in the universe I wish I'd never seen, and pray I don't see again)

I just want to thank Dearest for all her hard work on these boards. I know I go crazy (not really) when I can't post or read them. It is truly a life line for me.

 

Thank you so much for all you work.

Hi Shelley,

 

For the past two weeks I couldn't log on or use the insta-chat if I was using AOL. I had to log on using IE. Then just today I was able to log on and use insta-chat with AOL. Happy Valentine's Day to me I guess.

 

 

Donna :D

Hi Janet

 

The simpliest way to add someone to your friends list is to find a post they have written. Where their name appears off to the left of the post...click on their name...an option will appear to add them to your friends list. Now thats the easiest way I have found but maybe someone else has another way LOL Hope that helps!

I already tried contacting PS directly & got no response to my question....not sure where else to ask it!

 

I used to be able to read the threads at the very bottom of the forum, lately I haven't been able to. The thread in particular I'm trying to view is titled, "DHEA, Have You Tried It?" Link: http://www.power-surge.com/php/forums/inde...showtopic=10462

 

Here's the message I get:

Erin, I posted this in the other place you asked this question:

 

I can't read it either. Possibly that topic was moved elsewhere and that's an old link that doesn't reflect the move.

Ok, I tried to start a new topic on this board but everytime I do it says I don't have permission to and must be logged in and I am already logged in!!!! But what I was going to post on is I have been trying to reply to a PM that I recieved and every time I do, this little box comes up and says I can not post this and it says that it is aborted. I do not want this person to think that I am not replying to her and I can't understand why I can not send a pm. As soon as I type the name in and start typing where it says topic, it stops me. Any ideas or anyone else have this problem?
