Q: Why Can't I Log Into The Members Only Section?

A: In order to log into the Members Only section, you must have 'session cookies' enabled in your browser.  If you are having problems logging in, it is very likely that your system is not currently set to accept these session cookies. Cookies are small text files that are saved on your system when you contact a web site.  These cookies should not affect your system, and are often used to store useful information about who you are and what you did on your last visit.  You have probably noticed sites that remember your name, where you're from, or some bit of customized information.  These sites are likely making use of some sort of 'cookie'.  The Members Only section uses session cookies to remember that you are logged on as you go from one page to the next, and will soon be used for other advanced functionality.

  

Q:  How Do I Enable Cookies?

A:  This depends on the browser and/or security suite that you're using.  We have provided instructions for the most commonly used browsers and security suites.  To find out which browser you are using, select "Help / About ...".  If you are not using one of the browsers and/or security suites listed below, you will need to consult their help section or contact their technical support.
