I didn't do it Mark's way, I did not see it soon enough. I got back in using the forgot password link. Even though I knew my password, I used that method and got in with a new password.

Still experiencing this today, luckily found Mark's suggestion. What gives?

I've been e-mailing with Dave and he's working on it, he tried a few things today but they didn't work.  He's still working on it.

Good news, I didn't get logged out this morning after returning to the site.
Bad news, if I shut down the computer, then I have to log in again.
Been using Mark's method.

Dave would it be easier on you to just change dippy.org over to the same backend as your other forums?

Well... at this point it's Moparfins.com (on SMF and I'm just caretaking), Allpar (on Xenforo), and here (SMF). There are some programming leads I can follow up. I've had to move my daughter over the weekend and will try to do what Tech Support suggested tomorrow.

SMF seems to be buggy as [Edited by Farley's].  I know most other forum software requires a purchase.  If there is a migration path to something better I would be more than willing to chip in,

Thanks, but the issue isn’t so much cost as time! Especially with the white on black. It’s hard to migrate a big forum.

I got some help from tech support. Please tell me asap if the problem is still here (after you have time to refresh a couple of times).

That's great news. I heard from Luke that it's working, too.

SMF is very responsive for forum software, which I like. Also, the appearance can stay as it was before, for the most part. I could probably buy a theme for Xenforo which would keep the white-on-black. These transitions always seem to have problems and losses.

(The one at Moparfins was pretty harsh. I was able to get some help moving it all over, but we lost all passwords because of the encoding mechanisms in the old software, some absolutely antique Windows-only forum. SMF 1.x is still supported! That’s impressive.)

AFAIK the old problem of getting spurious 403 codes is over too.

THANK YOU EVERYONE for your patience and support!
