Once you have completed the registration process, you will be able to login to the site for the first time. After that, you can choose whether to stay logged in indefinitely or logout at the end of your visit.

    2. The Quick Login

  3. Password Reminder

Logging In

So you might be newly registered or you might simply have been logged out from a previous visit, but there's normally a choice between the login screen and the quick login in either case.

The Login Screen

Since this screen (accessed from the Login option of the main menu) is not only where you'll normally be taken on completing registration but also the first thing you'll see in any 'members only' forum, we will describe it first:

Login
Username:
Password:
Minutes to stay logged in:
Always stay logged in:
Forgot your password?


While the Username and Password fields should be self-explanatory, Minutes to stay logged in simply means the number of minutes the cookie that keeps you logged in will last before expiring and requiring you to login again. So it's not advisable to enter a long time here if you share a computer and are likely to forget to logout, but you might prefer to check Always stay logged in if no-one else has access to your computer.

The Quick Login

Although many forums also have a quick login box to allow you to login direct from any screen, its position on the page may vary considerably from forum to forum. In the SMF default theme, for example, it's in the collapsible section at the top, whereas it's more likely to be at the bottom in themes based on the older YaBB SE forum. If you can't see it and it hasn't simply been collapsed, it's either not enabled at all (in which case you should still be able to access the login screen from the main menu) or you're already logged in (in which case the main menu should include a Logout rather than Login link!).


Login with username, password and session length

To use the quick login box, enter your username and password, select your session length from the drop-down menu and click Login. Please note that Forever, like Always stay logged in, simply means that the computer should remember you until you next choose to logout, and not that you actually need to be online all of that time!

Logging Out

When you have finished browsing the forum, you may decide to logout. Perhaps you share a workstation with someone else, in which case leaving yourself logged in would not be a good idea. So select the Logout option from the main menu and the forum should log you out, turning you into an instant guest, clearing your name from the list of users online and safeguarding your forum identity until you choose to login again.

Password Reminder

If you're trying to login to the forum but have forgetten or lost your password, you can retrieve it with the lost password tool by following the Forgot your password? link from the login screen.

Password reminder
You can't retrieve your password, but you can set a new one by following a link sent to you by email. You also have the option of setting a new password by answering your secret question.
Username/email:

You can enter either your username or your email address so long as you check the appropriate option, then click the Send button to send yourself an email containing a link to reset your password. It's also possible to avoid the email altogether if you've set yourself a secret question and answer in your profile, but please beware of questions that anyone could answer or guess (like 'what is the first color of the rainbow?', which would be a very bad choice)!

Atrius: Thanks for letting me know, it should be fixed now.

Fox: Okay cool.  Speaking about broken things = There was some error I've known about for awhile now:  When you try to upload something to the Downloads section. The user may think the upload failed, but it actually succeeds. - I wonder if that was one of the few things? And whether that could be fixed if it hasn't yet.

Atrius: Oops, that wasn't even supposed to go up.  So, our hosting company moved the site over to a different server, and I was just updating some settings to fix things that broke in the move.

Fox: @Atrius: Probably going to need to update the Maintenance Description... I was confused at first, but it says 20 Mar 2017.

Majora: That's hilarious, lmao. I thought it read like something you might have written, Fox, was almost unsure if it was a bot at first

Fox: Yeah, he copied this post: http://forum.goldensunhacking.net/index.php?topic=1425.0
September 18, 2017, 02:57:48 PM
Fox: (Although, not sure about the last part, it just feels strangely familiar for some reason.)
September 18, 2017, 02:56:43 PM
Fox: BOT ALERT! Kill it, kill it! I think it copied one of my posts? :P

Fox: Not saing we actually need those ofcourse (we don't?), but more saying that minorities could get too attached to them.

Fox: I think it's interesting how Facebook likes to start things, and then retire them. For example, Advanced Search, and E-mail. - They seemed like pretty fine features in my opinion, but retiring them because most people aren't using them at that time? I'm not sure if they know what they're doing, but it sound like they don't. :P

Fox: (At leat when I think about establishments...)  ; Oops, pardon my rudeness... .I forgot to welcome you back.... Well... WElcome back! We are glad you've returned.

Fox: (Just want to clarify that "founded" may be an actual word, but sounds weird the way it was used.)
September 14, 2017, 12:47:42 PM
Fox: Cringy? Let me check... Hm... Low number of posts [check] (5 posts) ; misspellings/grammar [check] ("Toturial" (Torture-ial?) , ; founded, ehh.... double past-tense?) ; The best part is at least the posts have a positive attitude! (That may be the most important part?) :)

KeinoGSTLA: back then my posts were so cringy lmao

Fox: I don't suppose there is anything else? ;; Hmmm... What if a Big Brother game was similar to ... er.... Exit/Corners .... which seems to have a Trust system. 
September 06, 2017, 11:02:17 AM
Plexa: Honestly we haven't looked into that ... I completely forgot about it until now!
September 06, 2017, 05:44:33 AM
Fox: (Referring to the box/crate that would allow you to get stuck.)
September 06, 2017, 05:43:42 AM
Fox: Is SW Atteka Islet the only one that forgets to update the heightmap when save/resetting? ... The Move pillar seems to update it fine... Hm.
