Here's a new curiosity regarding the chat. Lildog Jr. has discovered the chat room and likes to hang out there sometimes. I like to check in from time to time, mostly to make sure he's behaving himself.
Lately, we've noticed a bit of a quirk. He'll be logged in on one computer and I'll go to login to chat from my laptop and chat tells me I'm already logged in and kicks me out, though Jr. tells me that the chat room shows me as being logged in. If I get logged in first, then the same thing happens to him.
The only way I've found around it is, if he's in the chat, I have to logout of the forum, then click the chat link and re-enter my username and password there. Once in chat, I can re-login to the forum and everything is fine. Best I can figure is that the auto-login when you go from the forum to chat is passing on our router's IP address instead of our respective computers' addresses, so the chat simultaneously adds me, but then tells me I'm already there. Since bypassing the auto-login works, it seems to me that the forum is passing some bit of information to the chat that is causing the mix up.
Any thoughts? Ideas?
