Hi Chris. I just logged on and it just happened to be 1 minute past midnight. You guessed it... it didn't remember me so I had to use the log out link and re-log in.

I'm sure they'll fix the bugs, we'll have to be patient.

The hard part is trying to figure out a consistent problem and what's causing it! BUT all the info you guys have so helpfully posted should make a big difference in solving it when we get down to it in the morning.

So thank you! And thanks for your patience!

It's a huge upgrade, and bound to have some problems.

Overall it's been pretty good - login is the only significant real issue, otherwise minor stuff.

funnily in the morning I had the same problems again.. with my FreeBSD Unix box + FF, showing the yellow box with the following text only after calling www.horizonsunlimeted.com page from out the Bookmarks:

"The website upgrade is done, we're in testing phase - posting looks good, no major issues.
There ARE a few minor issues - if you see anything weird please post it on the HUBB - Website Feedback Forum, or the Webmaster form.
IF you're having trouble logging in - please clear your browser cache AND restart your browser - that should fix it.
Thanks!"

now... after just "reloading" the page the new yellow box with the lockout link appears, clicking the link and I can login again... hopefully this post gets trough... and the issue is thereby fixed..

still this editing box "Reply to Thread" gets in to the way of the RH side boxex "Who's online", "Discussion" and "your comments", this boxes overlaying the editing box and under the smilies icons...

Identical situation today with Chrome running on Windows 7. It doesn't appear to be to do with the date, more an elapsed time.

As above I just used the logout link and didn't delete all my cookies (as I've done this 20 times already and I'm fed up having to sign in to all my other sites).

If I open a window with the HUBB in it without being signed in, and while thats open delete all HUBB cookies in Firefoxs preferences, why once I've typed in Grizzly7 does it still know my password?

If I delete HUBB cookies, and then open a HUBB window found via Google, since the HUBB is not currently a favourite etc, it also still knows the password?

Where else is that stuff stored?!

You have the password saved in your browser. Clearing your cookies does not affect this in any way. Nothing of this sort is stored in cookies.

To clarify the yellow message regarding login issues:

The problem is not actually with login per-se, but rather with the vBulletin session timing out before the Drupal session - this can happen if you login, and are inactive for a period of time. What will happen is you will still be logged in to Drupal, but no longer logged in to vBulletin, and this conflict will not allow you to re-login to vBulletin until you logout from Drupal.

If you are seeing the vBulletin header with the "login" form (no "welcome" screen), then you are NOT logged in to vBulletin. If you can access User account | Horizons Unlimited and see the "view" and "edit" tabs (see screenshot below), then you ARE logged in to Drupal. In this case, visit http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/logout and re-login normally - NO NEED TO CLEAR YOUR COOKIES in this scenario.
