When you are told that cookies are not saved, refresh the page (with Chrome press F12 (open Developer Tools https://developer.chro​me.com/devtools/docs/s​hortcuts (external link)) and then hold the mouse down on the refresh icon and pick "Hard Reload" from the menu, to make absolutely sure the page is reloaded).

Maybe you are logged in, but your pages are served by a stale cache.

As your Safari works, that is equally the proof that AMASS works as designed. This site does not make anything differently based on browser you use.

In Chrome it is also easy to check that cookies are saved:

Open developer Tools
Click "resources" tab
Click "Cookies"
Click "photography-on-the.net"

If there is a cookie there with a long garbled name, size about 300 bytes, then that is the login cookie.

(just to make sure: please do NOT post a screenshot of that window)

See also https://support.mozill​a.org/en-US/questions/1034392 (external link)

I did what you suggested. There is no cookie from POTN at all in Chrome. I did the hard reload also. I tried 3 more times, all with the same result as before. As it is a completely fresh install there were only cookies for the 6 sites I logged into that I know needed cookies. The only one that did not work POTN. I checked Firefox as well, no cookies from POTN there either. That is also a completely fresh install of Firefox 34.0.5 with no add ons or extensions put on yet.

I think I may have been unclear with you. When I say Safari works, I mean that its the only one that doesn't log me out for no reason. If I close the Safari page, I will still be automatically logged out. For that reason I leave Safari open all the time. If for some reason I need to reboot the computer I have to go through all the steps to login and get my pages the way I liked them again.

I just did one fix to notifications, hopefully that helps.

Due to the lack of notifications, I just saw this now while going back and reading through the thread. I am unsure of what clicking on this link is supposed to do? It just takes me to the Real Time Activity Tracker and I don't see anything about notifications. What should I be looking for?

Does it make sense to install some sort of remote desktop or Web conference to do testing remotely. I will say that logically it sounds like your hardware or service provider creating an issue because nobody is having the level of issues seen here.

Bug or not, I don't know. The page-jump feature--click the green page number--doesn't work in the "All of" gallery.

It not just one machine and one service provider though. Its multiple machines/devices and 2 different ISPs and 2 different cellular networks.

Pekka has already said he is too busy to worry abut this anymore and thats fine so I have no choice but to use it the way it is for me or move on. Thanks to everyone who has tried to help.

A mod deleted some posts in a thread. One of them was mine, but the "YOURS: 1" remained.

Thanks, a nice catch. That bug is now fixed - the fix applies to all post deletes from this moment on, I'll fix previous counter errors later.

I don't know if this is a bug and it's no big deal really, but I've noticed that all(I guess, all that I've checked anyway) of my old posts, pre-AMASS are labeled as responses to the post directly above. In most cases this was not the original intent and can be confusing to readers now.

That would be because vBulletin doesn't have a distinction between replying to a post or replying to the thread. The best that it can do is quote, but even that is just a reply to nobody in particular.

Hi Bill. Yes I realize this and in VB I always quoted the post that I was responding to when I responded to a particular post rather than responding to the thread. So the notation that I was responding to the above post is unnecessary and in most cases wrong.

When going through old posts in Urban & Travel to find photos for my gallery, I noticed that some posts were labeled as replies to Post XXX and some had no such label. vBulletin must have made a distinction, no?

This is a sample. https://photography-on-the.net …read.php?t=1401​119&page=1

Would the notion that you were replying to the thread be any more acceptable? VB and AMASS are very different so there probably no such thing as a perfect translation.

I checked out several of the vBulletin forums that I belong to. Only one of them (v4.2.2) had a reply button with each post, but there was no way to tell any difference between replying to a post or replying to the thread, at least none that I was able to find.

On most forums activity is so low that this is not a matter of concern. On busy forums, I make it a habit of quoting salient parts of a post because even on AMASS the difference between replying to a post or the thread is very low-key.

I don't know what version POTN used. Although my memory of the interface is fading, I remember that (A) you could reply to a post by quoting or multiquoting it, and (B) you could reply to a thread by using Post Reply or Quick Reply. Presumably the difference between A and B accounts for the variation, visible at AMASS!, in the way posts are labeled in threads that came over from POTN-vB.

Old POTN used v3.X.X. I think that you are correct, but like you my memory of the way it looked is fading. In reading through some of the complaints about AMASS with claims about what could be done, shows that some memories have faded into fantasy.
