    I agree with your point, but my reference to the 'size' of the membership of the forum was meant to point out that PM's here tend to be between 'friends' and not strangers, so whilst the PM system isn't working as it should, I can't see a problem with friends contacting each other by email, if they can't wait to read a PM on the forum when they log in..

    I didn't mentioned this, because I thought it was just me, but it might be a clue as to why some people are not getting the email for confirmation when they first try to join. I was one of those, and it didn't go to spam. (Or why the email notifications aren't working.)

    I can never log in from this forum's home page, www.seniorsonly.club. I have to go to another page, like recent posts. It always gives this error message:

    [​IMG]

    Haven't tried clearing the cache. Preferred to just work around it, but I will, if the information would help.

    Somewhere, you have your computer set to not accept cookies, it seems. Without cookies, you would have to log back in every time you clicked into another page. Here's a statement on cookies, which applies, except that we have no advertising cookies.

    More information...

    I'm calling the "home page" here, the one you are taken to, if you click on the logo in the upper left corner of the page. This thing:

    soclogo.jpg

    If you click on that, the URL is not secure (i.e., starts with http: , instead of https:. ) This is the page I cannot log into.

    http://www.seniorsonly.club/

    If I copy that URL, and edit in the s, https, then I can log in from that page.

    https://www.seniorsonly.club/

    Maybe my problem has to do with Chrome? It's no big deal to me. It might cause a new member some confusion. Or it might be a clue. That's all. Thanks.

    Browsers will often flag sites that use http rather than https now, so that, if they're selling something that requires a credit card or sensitive information, you know that. It adds another level of security but it doesn't mean that anyone can get in, but it also costs $100 a year. I few years ago, I bought a security certificate for it but couldn't figure out how to install it, so I didn't renew it the following year. Since we don't collect sensitive information here, and it's not as if it's insecure without it. That's mostly so you know that a site hasn't gone that extra step in the event that they are asking you for credit card or other sensitive information. No one has hacked the forum yet. Perhaps when I do the upgrade, I'll try again to get a security certificate installed.

    But I don't think that relates to the cookies issue. The cookies message is one that it would display if your browser was set to not accept cookies, but then it should also display on other pages because it would be pretty hard to navigate the forum without accepting cookies.
