  • Cookie Problem

    For some weird reason IE is not holding any vB cookies. I opened up IE and I was signed out of all vB boards inclusing this one. Upon loginig in I was able to use the forums but when I closed the browser and reopened it I was signed out again.

    I have cleared the cookies in IE Options, that did not work. I cleared the cookies manually from the Docs folder and that did not help. I have disabled the firewall and confirmed IE was set to accept cookies, and again it does not work.

    I am running the latest WinXP, IE and vBulletin Version 3.0.7

    Any ideas?

    What are your vBulletin cookie settings?

    ACP> vB Options > vB Options > Cookie settings
    cookie domain:
    cookie timeout:
    cookie path:


    config.php file >
    cookie prefix:


    Is it only you with the ie cookie problem, or all the members on your site?

      After clearing your cookies, did you also RESTART the browser? with IE cookies will stay in memory untill you close the browser itself.

        I figured it out. My son set my computers date forward to 2007 and it was causing a timeout on all cookies everywhere.

        Thanks for your help!
