This is with regards to http://216.58.161.130/forums/showthread.php?t=22092

After looking through a couple sources, I tracked down a method that will work for a vast majority of the people with cookie problems (a few may still have problems, but since it's working for me, that's good enough for me to share my method). There is a bug with this current version of vBulletin that causes a lot of headaches, but following these (hopefully simple) steps will prevent you from being logged out after posting. Obviously, you need cookies enabled first. If you know your cookies are up and running, then proceed with the method.

If you are using Internet Explorer to post here:

- Go to Tools at the top of Internet Explorer
- Go to Internet Options in that menu and click on that
- Click the top bar Security
- In the row of boxes click Trusted Sites and click on the box below that with the word Sites...
- Make sure the checkbox Require server verification (https: ) for all sites in this zone is NOT checked (mine was checked by default, so click on it if you have a checkmark there to uncheck it)
- In the box Add this Web site to the zone type in or copy from the forum link http://216.58.161.130 (you can use http://www.denverbroncos.com instead of http://216.58.161.130 if you would like)
- Click OK below Require server verification (https: ) for all sites in this zone
- Now that you're sent back to the Security Page, click OK at the bottom of that section
- Log out of the Broncomania Message Boards (or post until you're logged out automatically, whichever you prefer)
- Log back in with your user name and password as you normally would, making sure that the box Remember Me is checked

Now you'll probably never be logged out again. I'm sorry I made another thread for this solution, but hopefully it'll help other people get the most out of their Broncomania posting experience as it did for me. :)

Edit: Darn, Firefox is still out of the loop. Maybe I'll have to mess around with it if someone needs help setting it up. If not, I won't bother. IE is more popular.
