    Is there any chance of a rebate when members renew membership to this web site. Its been a while since one could get full usage of this web site.

    Kevin,

    I don't understand your question. Rebate? On what? NAWCC membership? It costs nothing to register on the MB. And as an NAWCC member, you have as extensive access to the features of this MB as any full NAWCC member! As I recall, you had let your membership in NAWCC lapse for a while. You wouldn't have had full access during that time. But now? What is it that you are unable to access?

    We were aware of the problem, and it has been repaired, as far as I know. If problems persist, use the "report post" option to alert Tom and the rest of the mod team.

    Was not sure if problem was fixed. As it says at top of page to sign in as a guest. After about 8 failed attempts i gave up signing in as a member and just used guest sign in.
    If it is fixed should the notice not be removed. As it was not posted it was fixed i had no idea it was ok now.
    I opened a thread in case others had this problem.
    Thanks to all those who have fixed this.

    If at the top right (on the message board) you see an orange "NAWCC log out" button, this indicates you are fully logged into the message board. Similarly on the main website, if you see an orange "logout" button at the top right, you are logged in.

    I tried this....%^&*(

    Cleared all cookies, etc.

    Logged in with the blue NAWCC logo in the upper right corner...IMIS came up and I was successful...The upper right corner turned Orange and I was welcomed as Dick C as it should.

    I clicked on this link that you provided and the next page that popped up was http://www.nawcc.org/index.php which is the home page for the organization.

    At other times the link does come up; however, when I click on the Flip Book format it shows that I am not signed in as a member; although, the upper right on this linked page is in Orange.

    There appear to be other things that are strange as I have randomly been Marking all forms to be read which appears on the bottom of the forum page. Now it is marking them all read whether I click on it.

    Can someone please address what problem you are attempting to solve by changing the login/logout info. What are the behaviors that I should expect as there are two different ways that I can log onto the message board and one when I log onto the nawcc.org (.com) site. And what are the behaviors when I log off...

    It should be noted that at times I have one tab in my browser connected to the nawcc.org site and another tab running the message board and I do not select Remember Me on either site.

    Note that the behavior noted at the start of this message there was/is only one browser tab being utilized.

    Ignore the comment that I have highlighted in RED above.

    When you are finished fixing the login/logout issues will you be focusing on the redirect issues?

    Dick

    P.S. I run two systems, one a Windows 7, IE 11 64 bit and Windows 8, IE 10 64 bit.

    Not much I can do to help. Markus Harris and Kevin Osbourne are both working on this, and I have confidence they will track this down. Tom will be updating the Vbulletin software once this problem is resolved, which we hope will fix the redirect problems.

    Kevin,

    You are referring to the FLIPBOOK version of the Bulletin. I wasn't aware that the Flipbook directory security wasn't updated to the correct log in code.

    Should be fixed now.

    Sorry for the inconvenience. That one slipped under the radar.

    Regards,

    Markus

    I don't follow what you mean by "flipbook version". For me it opens as a PFD file with the pages from first to last readable by scrolling down. Each article is opened by clicking on the page number.

    Yeah, certainly if I want to zero in on a particular article or section, the .pdf version is best, IMO. (I can also download it easily and sell it on the black market to covert horologists.:whistle:)

    But for skimming or browsing the whole issue, the flipbook version is a bit more convenient, and I can see its attraction to those whose membership provides for only online copies of the Bulletin and Mart.

    I can now access the flipbooks using Google Chrome on my main PC running Windows 10 and my back up PC that runs Windows 7. But, if I try to use IE8 on my back up PC, I can access the main NAWCC page, but it crashes if I try to log in. Try another browser Dick.

    I upgraded to 10, and within two weeks went back to 8.1. 10 ruined a couple of my programs that I really needed, and wouldn't run others.

    If you are suggesting that I try to use another browser as a test case, then ok.

    However, if your suggestion is that I go to another browser as a permanent solution, then I do not buy it. 99.999999999% of my work is done with the IE browser where I do use Favorites as a place to save and categorize items, etc. Therefore, using another browser is unacceptable.

    The integration of the two login/logout options, one for organization members and the other for non-members appears to be a more difficult problem than they anticipated.

    I am still waiting for someone to explain what the anticipated effects will be, not only for Login, but also for Logout. Best they spend the time on addressing what they are currently doing and then get on to redirect as I can deal with the two different login options and the two different usernames/passwords.

    Good evening Dan from me in the UK. I hope that Johnnie II and yourself are well.

    The problem with XP is that the support from Microsoft has ended so you will not get any further updates from Microsoft.

    If you can upgrade to Win 7, then that has support until 2020 so you would get a further 5 years of updates.
    Having run Win7 for the last year or so,having upgraded from XP, it is not a bad operating system.
    And any programmes of yours that will run under XP should be able to run under Win7.
    If they don't you can always try using them in compatibility mode and that is, without going into details, quite easy to do.

    However, there is a caveat to this, given the age of your computers will they be able to run Win7?
    You would need to run a compatibility checker to ensure that they do.
    But please, if you can, do the upgrade to Win7. It will be worth your while and help keep you protected.
    Do you know of anyone in Philadelphia who might be able to help you with this?

    Regards

    David

    Thanks for your thoughts. About a year ago I had a computer man come over and install Windows 7 and it would not run my Creatacard plus 3...this program is from the early 1990's and will not run on any upgrade. That's why I stay with Windows XP.

    I do not worry about too many years to come...being 100 years of age this coming December.
