Cannot reply on your threads, so started this one. Anyhoo, all seems well on my end.

Thanks Kelly. I was wondering about how no one was replying to that topic. That topic is a "Global Announcement" and there must be a setting somewhere where it does not allow replies to global announcements. ouch

Rule One of Structured Programming - globals suck. Which actually got me fired from my last programming job. (The boss/guru loved his globals)

Anyways, I'm just amazed this board is still alive after all these years. So a big THANK YOU for your efforts!

I know so little about globals that I don't even know what they are.
Thanks for keeping our little community alive.
WIll this new software allow Chrome to keep me logged in, instead of the hit or miss that has been happening for a long time?

Running with the tangent thread a bit...

In computer programing, variables have a defined "scope". Meaning that a variable of a given type and name can exist solely within a section of the application (i.e. a Function or Method) while not being seen or acted upon in any other section. A "global" variable has unlimited scope, persisting throughout a program across all functions. Thus its scope is "global" throughout all the code. They have their uses, but can (mostly?) cause all kinds of headaches if not used wisely. wink

About the problem of staying logged in; this is pretty much always an issue with the cookies used by the forum software to know who you are. They can get corrupted or otherwise prevented from being used properly.

Using any kind of "private browsing" feature, plug-in or add-on (via some kind of internet security software perhaps) prevents web sites from storing cookies on your computer. And it's the cookie that the forums software needs to see to know that it's you. You can try adding the boatingabc.com domain your list of trusted sites.

It would help me to know what browser and version you are using. Also, try different browsers and see if one of them will keep you logged in. They all set and use their own cookies. So one browser not keeping you logged in does mean that another will also have the same issue. If you try three different browsers and all three will not keep you logged, it would tend to suggest that some other software on the computer is getting in the way (i.e. Antivirus/Internet Security).

It has been a while since checking into this issue and I need to do some catching up.

Once I look into this anew, I'll post about what I find.

Mike

Global Variables are great for storing line numbers so you can use them as the target for "GO TO" statements. funny

So I finally hit the auto login failure. Just took longer than with the old system. My old password did work.

I quit doing that except for when jumping out of subroutines without managing the stack...
