I just tried this *again*. It doesn't work. In fact, all the php boards I go to seem to have this problem. What's odd is that when I go to edit my preferences my user name is pre-filled so I know it's picking up the cookie. I don't understand why a php board cannot auto-authenticate from a cookie.
We're moving to a new server, it's already setup, I'm just doing some testing right now...Plus, I have an OS issue at home, so I'm biting the bullet and installing WindowsXP tonight /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif
