Difference Between Cookies

Blab uses both "persistent" and "session" cookies to deliver content:

- Persistent cookies store information used between visits to Blab. For example, persistent cookies store information such as your username and what posts you have read in your last visit. The "Remember Me" feature uses persistent cookies.

- Session cookies store information used while you are visiting, so Blab still remembers who you are when you click from thread to thread, or forum to forum.

Troubleshooting Cookie Issues

If your "Remember Me" function is not working, then your "persistent" cookie is not working. If you are being prompted for login information with each page you visit, then your "session" cookie is not working. If you can't login or logout totally, it's probably a cookie issue involved.

You can try to clear up these issues by clearing cookies using this link. If that does not work, then you need to clear cookies manually.

2) Go to the top menu and select "Tools" and then "Internet Options."

3) When the dialogue box opens, locate the area called "Browsing History" and select "Settings." Then select "View Files."

4) If your dialogue box is different, poke around until you find "View Files."

5) While viewing your files (these are your cookies), delete the following, if present:

    cookie: [your computer username]
    cookie: [your computer username]

6) Close Internet Explorer and reopen it.
