Has someone altered the way the forum handles people being logged in, any time in the last few days? Before the weekend, I stayed logged in on a particular browser for weeks, possibly months, at a time, even if I closed the browser and shut down the computer. Now, it seems I get logged out automatically every time I close the browser, and I have to log in again the next time I open it. The enhanced security is probbaly good, but it would be nice to know when someone is working on this sort of thing.

I've not touched anything, or added any updates, and it still works for me as normal. Sounds more like your browser is removing, losing or resetting the cache/cookies somehow?

I know Microsoft edge deletes history and cookies automatically by default, don't think any other popular browsers do, although you should check your settings just in case.

I'm using Firefox on two different PCs, one running Windows 7, the other running Vista. They're both still requiring me to log in every time. I cleared cookies for Exilian on the Vista PC (but not the other one, as far as I remember) at the weekend, but it should have re-created one by now, surely. Safari on my iPhone seemed to get really confused about whether I was logged in around the weekend as well, but has now settled down again, leaving me logged in all the time. I'm pretty sure there wasn't a Firefox upgrade at the weekend; maybe some other component has changed without anyone knowing? Anyway, it's an irritation rather than a significant problem, and it will probably go away as mysteriously as it appeared.

Another slightly random technical question: is it possible to switch Exilian from plain old HTTP to HTTPS? If so, is it just a set-up option for the web server, or would we have install new server software, or change our set-up with GoDaddy?

We'd need to pay for a certificate, or else use a self-signed one and not really get much benefit. I imagine it'll be easy enough on GoDaddy's UI, but I don't know how much they charge for the privilege.

I've just made a small tweak, making the colour for the Tribounoi very slightly paler so it's easier to read against the dark background :)

Another small tweak - I noticed that the box allowing members to display their Exilian party affiliation had "Independent" misspelt and excluded the PP, so I've fixed those things.

Many thanks.

As usual, I had to hit F5 to refresh my cache in order to see - is there any way we can mark the banner file as "new" to get HTTP to refresh it automatically?

I don't know, alas - I can't think of how that would be done, except by changing our system to change the reference instead of the image filename, but that would make the whole process take several times longer :/

Heya folks, I just messed up upgraded the forum CSS to make images actually scale to fit page width instead of overflowing like before! This affects the default theme, RTR and Curve. Enjoy!
