Why can I not stay logged in?

If you keep logging in and keep getting logged out, chances are the cookie names were changed for the board. What you need to do to fix this problem is to delete the current YaBB SE cookies on your computer.
In Internet Explorer you can do this by going to Tools -> Internet Options. Click the Settings button in the General tab, and then View Files. You can either delete all the files, or just find the specific cookie you need to delete. Look for the domain name of the site the forum is on.
This should solve your problem

In addition to doing this, also change the YaBBSE Cookie Name to something different, in the Admin -> Forum Preferences and Settings section, such that it does not conflict with any other boards in use. Change it to something unique, like "1337YaBBSEboard" that will not likely be in use by another thing on your site.

This problem occured when I changed:
$cookieusername = "YaBBusername";      
and   
$cookiepassword = "YaBBpassword";   

to my own values. I changed my own values back to YaBBusername and YaBBpassword and the problem was solved.

Guys the problem is internet explorer 6 and cookies I made a tutorial about fixing it:
------------
Some people have a problem to stay logged in to this forum using ie. 6.0 and this forum I will explain how to get it working here:

1: go to http://yoursite.com
2: make sure that you are logged in
3: next to your status bar you see a little icon that looks like I "stop" sign, double click it

Screenshot

4: double click the top url, you should get the following screen: http://home.quicknet.nl/qn/prive/mf.kraakman/tutorial1.jpg

5: Select "Always allow this site to use cookies" and click ok

6: ENJOY! it should work now!
-----------
There you go

^ Thats also another fix if you are infact using IE 6 and you have a higher safty level set in Internet Options. Also If your using Windows XP you do use IE 6 (if you use IE at all)

Its the same way with IE 5.5 and earlier versions.

This is NOT an IE problem, I have the same problem with Opera and Netscape. Opera doesn't have savety levels at all. In every browser I deleted all the cookies, but the problem stays.

Actually it is pretty easy to fix this problem: just do not use any spaces in the name of your cookies. For example: instead of "YaBB Username" use "YaBB_Username" or "YaBBUsername."

well people, i´ve got the same problem after converting a gold-board to SE! the first time i did it, the conversion has gone pretty good and everything is ok, despite some users experiencing cookie-troubles with IE6, but that´s no realy important problem and easy to fix ;)

but its NOT a cookieproblem, ´cause i´m running two different boards on my server with each using the same cookienames, and there is NO problem with it!

my actual problem is that after running converter.php SUCCESSFULLY (!) for another board, i´m no more able to login as an admin!!! ahm, not fully correct, i´m able to LOGIN, but get kicked off, if i want to enter my admin-tool!
normal users are also kicked off. i tried to change the cookienames, and also tried every troubleshooting i could find here, but nothing worked!
btw.: i´ve ran the install.php 5 times yet, and every time these problems occured!

some ideas?

sorry for my english and greetz from germany
