Default Mods, assistance required

I have just started using a new PC and find I can no longer access the Modern Technology thread. Is it something I said or didn't say?

Nothing to do with us. You're shown as being a member with more than ten posts so you should be able to access MT.

Could be a problem with your cookie settings.

What error message do you get?

Did you tick the "remember me" box when you logged in?.

Cheers

You need to be logged in to see MT. It's for established members only.

I assumed that as the OP was able to make a post he'd have been logged in. Of course he could have logged in after discovering the problem whilst logged out.

The OP must have been logged in to make a post, but not being logged in is the most likely explanation for a missing MT section. I can't think of anything else that would have that effect.

Very odd. Yes I was logged in and it does remember me. But I can now get into the MT section, so thank you mods, hopefully no further action required.

Thought for OP- have you got any sort of VPN activated. I've got one active ( apologies to mods) , but all my cookies ref remember me are deleted and I have to partially sign in.

It may be easier to disable the VPN for this site.

There is no third party tracking or data sharing here to worry about, so using something that messes with your cookies or keeps changing your IP address adds hassle for no benefit.

The only part that could track you is the Google Custom Search, but if you use that it shows the results on a page at Google (which you would keep in your VPN) anyway.

I agree.
All my security software shows no trackers found.
It gets a welcome rest when I am logged on here.
