: Also, I've never known a browser to
: not accept future cookies from a website that you've previously
: deleted the cookie from. I just tested that on 4 random
: websites, and each one gave me a new cookie. I couldn't find a
: setting to enable the behavior you mention in either IE or
I'm sure to have seen a corresponding checkbox more than once when deleting cookies. But I can't remember which browser. At least couldn't locate it at the moment. .... but there are too many addons and security things involved to get a full overview. .... might have been in the context of some addon???
: I found what you are talking about. The html code for the message
: board link was http://www.livingstonitown.com/message . If you
: clicked the link it sent you to
: http://livingstonitown.com/message/ (without the
: "www"). I spent quite some time trying to figure that
: one out. I finally found that if I added the /index.cgi to the
: end of the link, that it would resolve correctly to
: http://www.livingstonitown.com/message/index.cgi . Strange one
: to me.
Likely an browser issue again related to prefixing and suffixing, or something on your server the way it handles missing files. Maybe a redirect advice somewhere in your .htaccess configuration?
: I corrected the code, had quite a few people try using the updated
: link, but with the same poor results of not saving their
: settings and profile name. BUT, when I tried it with IE8 (which
: previously wouldn't save my profile name) it did in fact save it
: this time.
Corrected links is a must have. Leaves the issue with not reaccepting cookies.
Sorry, can't look it up on my box. I'm almost Linux only and my older testing boxes with IE are not available at this place.
: One last thing. when I upgrade to Tetra WebBBS, I will be able to
: just copy the current WebBBS profiles to the new profile
: directory in the new instalation, correct?
Yes. You can preserve all old data. Messages, images, profiles. Only they should go into the new default folders autocreated by the scripts. That's described in the setup guide.
