Here are some Forum technical questions and I think this is the proper place for them.

I was trying to edit my post and it won't let me do it.

I get this message and log in but it doesn't work.
You are not logged in or you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

What's the secret?

Also about two months ago I signed on as shutterbug22 and it okayed it, etc. But when I would try to post I would also get the above message. I tried emailing DVDTalk, but never got a response. I finally got a new user name from another computer that didn't have the cookie that kept telling me I already had a user name.

Why would this have happened?

When the screen comes up with the message telling you you are not logged in, there should be boxes that allow you to enter your user name and password. Do that, and it'll work.

One thing to try is to first log out. That takes care of the cookies on your system, if they are incorrect. You can see the logout icon on the main forum page. Then you will see the log in icon and go from there.
