Forum domain name change - CAN'T LOG IN ??? Please read

The domain for these forums has changed from http://forum.spa-networks.co.uk/forums to http://www.progforums.com/forums

Please bookmark the new URL (http://www.progforums.com/forums)

Unfortunately this will mean that your login cookies aren't valid, so you'll need to log in again.

If you have forgotten your username or password (or both), please use the "Forgotten your password" feature on the logon page, or contact me on ForgotPW082010@spa-networks.co.uk from the email address you have registered here with, and I'll sort it out manually.


Thanks
SteveA

You might have problems logging in from the new domain at the moment - the cookies don't seem to save properly. I'm investigating. Please use the old domain if you experience problems logging in.

I've solved the cookie problem - we're totally switched over to the new domain, so you will find that if you are using the old domain, you'll be a "guest" and if you try to log in (despite a success message), you will remain logged out.

Please use the new domain: http://www.progforums.com/forums

Great! I already spread the word out about the forums on Facebook, Last.fm and so on.

I've worked out how to do a 301 redirect now on any connection that doesn't match the new domain name, which means that if anyone uses the old domain, it'll automagically change to the new domain in front of their eyes!

Also means that search engines should convert all the old pages they discovered to the new domain without the need to rediscover everything.
