I think you have to be logged on to have full access to everything?February 10, 2004 at 9:05 am #17522
Chris, can you tell me more about what operating system you run and whether you have a firewall like Norton or Zone Alarm? You must have been logged on to send your message, presumably you have no logon problems?February 10, 2004 at 11:19 am #17523
I have no problems signing on and i am running windows XP home eddition i do not run any firewall only anyi virus softwareFebruary 10, 2004 at 9:12 pm #17524
Try changing your Internet Explorer settings:
Tools, Internet Options, Security, slide the security bar to low.
Click OK then close internet explorer and start it back up again.
Question 1: Are you logged in automatically when going to the forum homepage?
Now click private messages at the top of the page.
Question 2: What do you get?
Question 3: What Antivirus software do you run?February 16, 2004 at 6:09 pm #17525
when loging on i put a c in the box and click on my name the password comes on automatically
when i clik on private messages it goes to the genral chat page
and i am using McAfee antivirus
i have set the security levl to lowFebruary 16, 2004 at 6:31 pm #17526
wonder if it will make a diffreence if i register againFebruary 17, 2004 at 9:00 pm #17527
Chris – Seem to remember you had a problem with a forgotten password when you first registered. This may be causing your messaging problem. If you are using Internet Explorer 5 or above, then try this:
Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.x or above will save the password entered the first time in any password field such as the the Forum99 logon screen.
No matter what you type in to this field, the previously entered password will be used. Microsoft Internet Explorer will insert the password saved the first time (when a pop-up box prompted you with “Do you want this password saved?”). This issue is the result of a Microsoft Internet Explorer setting and can be resolved within Internet Explorer.
Logout of Forum99 and go to any other web site or offline
Select the Tools menu
Choose Internet Options
Click the Content tab
Click the Auto Complete button
Click on Clear Password
***This will clear ALL remembered passwords on Internet Explorer, not just your Forum99 password. Please make sure you have all passwords for other sites!***
Return to the forum and login with your name and password. You can store this now if you wish.
Let me know how you get on.February 18, 2004 at 2:20 pm #17528
thanks ip I tried that but that did not work either would it be worth registering again with a different name and password?February 18, 2004 at 5:38 pm #17529
Yes, by all means try that. When you say clicking on Private Messages takes you to the general chat page, which page is that? Can you tell me what appears on that page?February 18, 2004 at 5:44 pm #17530
And are you still logged in afterwards, ie is there a logOUT button at the top of the page next to the text saying “you are logged in as…..” ?
What do you see when you click on this link:February 19, 2004 at 4:31 pm #17531
BINGO i clicked on your link and i can now get private messages
and also i get the logout button at the top of the page which i never had befor
thanks for your help i will now save this in my favorites
