    I'm afraid there's not much you can do about all the posts that were made when the server time was off. The only thing you can do is modify the times in the database and that's a real pain.

          If by 'cookie thing' you mean the cookie timeout, then '1' is a very bad setting. I really don't recommend this. You could try emptying the session table in the database to see if this clears them off. To do so, backuop your database, then run this query:

          DELETE FROM session;

            Is 2 a better choice?

            i dont know how to backup my database so i dont really wanna get into all of that. But i know these people should be off the board by now.

            My board is broken forever because of that damned server clock.

              As I said it depends on what you mean by 'cookie thing'. The recommended cookie timeout setting is 900.

                Yes i am talking about what you're talking about.

                Let me set it back to 900.. and i'll see if that helps.

                And if not. I'll come back here in 15 minutes.


                thank you.

                    I didn't say it would make them leave. I said you can try running the query I posted and this may get rid of some of them.

                      thank you.

                        You need to go into phpMyAdmin and modify the dateline column in the post table and enter the unix timestamp that you want. You can use this online tool to convert dates and times to Unix Timestamps:

                          ^ I have no idea how to use that..


                          Those people are still logged into my main page.. and i read what you said before.. but i dont know exactly how to get there to perform the operation.

                          Can you describe how i would get all my guests and registered users off of the main page?

                          Thank you

                            You need to run the query I posted earlier. You do this with phpMyAdmin. PhpMyAdmin is a MySQL database management tool. Most web hosts provide this as part of the web site management tools such as CPanel, Plesk or Ensim. Look for a link to SQL or MySQL Databases. If you can't find it I suggest you ask your host about this.

                            If for some reason they do not provide phpMyAdmin or an equivalent MySQL manager, then you can download and install phpMyAdmin yourself from this location:

                            http://www.phpmyadmin.net/
