Occasionally there are problems on the forums that can be rectified by simply clearing cookies.

Just in case you do not know how to clear your cookies

The first step is to delete just the forum-related cookies:

At the bottom left of the main Board Index you will find a button Delete Board Cookies.

Click this and it will delete only the cookies associated with the Forum.

If this doesn't solve the problem then you'll need to clear all cookies. It is slightly different for each browser

Internet Explorer

Select Tools (The cog like icon in the top right corner)


Then from the resulting menu select Internet Options. In the dialogue box select the General tab and in the Browsing history section (in the middle) click the Delete button. You will see the following dialogue box:


If you have saved the forum as one of your favourites then untick the Preserve Favorites website data option. Make sure the Temporary Internet files and website files and the Cookies and Website data options are ticked and then click the Delete button.


From the Firefox drop down box in the top left corner, select Options and Options again.


Click on the Privacy tab, then Show Cookies and you should get this :


Now either select the cookie you wish to remove and click Remove Cookies or click Remove All Cookies.


There's no use in reinventing the wheel so here's a really good tutorial about how to clear cookies in Chrome.
