    Excellent instructions, James.

    Martin, I think the search function is still awaiting a fix. No clue as to why you're experiencing the login problem. I'd find it very annoying too. In fact, logging in is awkward on my laptop because when I type in the password the characters are not echoed and I can't see if I'm typing it correctly.

    Michael,

    After you type in the first letter of your password you'll see what looks like a eye with a brow over it to the right in the password box.. Click on that and you'll be able to see your password.

    Okay, waiting for a fix, but I can't even find it for a general search so lost. I was looking for something I had replied to in the last 2 weeks and could not even find it scrolling through pages. Old eyes maybe...

    I had this computer save the log in info, so at least it's front loaded.

    Now here's the real test - how do I clear the 403 Forbidden problem from my Kindle Fire????

    Well, I thought I had this all settled and I was signed in to the Forum and that was remembered......

    But yesterday I found that every time I closed the tab after visiting, I got signed out from the Forum. Now I have to sign in every time I open a tab to visit the Forum. A bit annoying and odd, both.

    Also, I can't find a way to Search the entire Forum. Can search within a thread but not an entire category area.

    Posting my first pictures, I figured out:

    1. Use the Image icon right of center in the toolbar above.
    2. Use the new window's Upload tab to get your image (I'm sticking with 200 kilobytes or less out of respect for Joe's disk space).
    3. Once it's uploaded, click 'Send it to the server'
    4. Switch to the Image Info tab and the URL will magically appear in its window. Fill in title etc. as you wish.
    5. Post the image and it will appear in the new post pane.

    Thank you Joe.

    It appears that several of us are experiencing random "403-Forbidden: Access is denied" or "error_information_x-1" notifications when using the back arrow to return to a previous page, after opening a full-sized image from a thumbnail or even randomly selecting, forums, sub-forums or threads.

    I have precisely identified a cookie that is causing a conflict for me. While viewing as a guest, I noticed that railroad-line.com deposits 5 to 6 cookies on my machine. When a 403 error occurred I began working my way down through the list of cookies in a parallel "settings" window, removing one cookie at a time and attempting to refresh the page. After removing a cookie named "bbdiscussion_view", I was able to refresh the error page, whereupon the requested forum page instantly displayed properly. After a navigating about the site without problems for a minute or so, the errors would return. A quick check of the cookies in the settings window showed that the "bbdiscussion_view" cookie had reappeared, at which point I deleted it and continued to navigate the site until the next glitch occurred. After many cycles of testing over the last few hours, I'm confident that there is a definable conflict.

    I am using Windows 10 and Chrome browser for the forum. Cookie settings are to allow all cookies from railroad-line.com and to remove them upon closing the browser window. I hope that this info will be useful to those who are working diligently through the issues.

    Internal links do not work and will probably never work due to different verbiage. Old links end with /forum/T...tOPIC_id=(a four digit figure). In the new forum they end with /node/(a number). You'll have to manually find what you are looking for. I don't know if a fix will can be made in the future to remedy this situation or not. Joe would be the one to answer this.

    Two practical things: First, login cookies expire in 24 hours. Now that RR-Line uses SSL encryption, there's much less reason to expire logins that fast. But I can't say how easy it would be to change.

    Second, the old RR-Line's own Search functionality didn't work, so we got used to using Google site:railroad-line.com. I've tried that with the new RR-Line, but all the links still have the old TOPIC_ID values instead of the new node/#####. Is there a simple way to ask for a re-index while avoiding excessive load?

    No apologies needed, it's all part of getting a new project up and running. At some of us can sign in and carry on and try to help some of the others if they have the patients, which some don't seem to have.

    I'm happy to just to able to have the forum up and running. Thanks much Joe.

    RRL is not alone in requiring cookies for logins.
