Hopefully someone has the answer to this:

When I view the MNGCA website from my iPAQ, I am logged into the website just fine, but am not logged into the forums, nor can I log into forums. ie: I can see my profile, but cannot post on forums.

Hardware is iPAQ 3115 running MS Pocket PC v 4.21 OS and wireless LAN. I use the pocket version of IE shipped with the iPAQ to browse the MNGCA website.

An ideas?

I believe the login for the website is different than that for the forum. You may have the same username/password, but you need to go through the login process for each. It's not clear to me if you're clicking on the login link for the forums or not?

I am automatically logged in to the website from the bookmark, but a seperate login cell appears when I go to "Forums" link. Cannot log in at all. Hmmmmm....maybe I am using the wrong password?

I have no problems with logging in from my mobile device. Don't know what the problem might be. I haven't used a PocketPC to surf the web in years.

I guess you can try clearing your cookies.

The PDA sure beats lugging a laptop when traveling.

Then I'd have to lug the laptop around again to work off the Christmas cookies. LOL.

I'm using my ipaq rx3115 to post this. I just logged into the forums page and it seems to be working fine. I'm not sure why yours won't work though. Question Hope you figure it out.

Still no luck....I logged out on the MnGCA website and tried to log into forums, but cannot.

Any ideas on Cookie locations? The normal folder on the PDA for cookies is blank and I deleted everything that was in the guest folder.
