I'm rather surprised that this thread came back to current. Glad to know people are still thinking about this.
I'm not sure that my "problem" can be placed at the feet of my ISP (not AOL, BTW).
Here's a detailed description of how I was able to post this message:
1- browsed to the C-C.com site
2- clicked on Forum Index
3- clicked on Administrative
4- clicked on "Help: Login Hassles"
5- read Sava's message and decided to reply
6- went to the masthead and entered my info in the appropriate boxes
7- found myself back at the Forum Index (huh?)
8- clicked on Administrative (footer stated that I cannot
9- clicked on "Help: Login Hassles"
10- clicked on the quotation symbol on Sava's message
11- re-entered my login info on the page that appeared
12- found myself back at the Forum Index again
13- clicked on Administrative (footer stated that I can
14- clicked on "Help: Login Hassles"
15- clicked on the quotation symbol on Sava's message
16- you are now reading the result
So, logging in via the masthead doesn't seem to work. Logging in via the quotation symbol of a posted message works, but it is
a tad annoying to be booted back out to the Forum Index, meaning that I have to click all the way back to the message I want to reply to.
Anyway, that's the hassle. In the grand scheme of things it isn't a deal-breaker, and I'm the first to admit that I haven't a clue how to construct a site like this, so I want all the admins to know that I really like this site!!!!
I will continue to post, hassles or no hassles.
Thanks for bearing with me this far.
