checked it all and still having issues. When I moved from the forums to the gallery just now, it kept my cookie, but when i clicked on a password protected gallery, it logged me out and told me I didn't have permission to view images in the category, didn't even give me an opportunity to put in a password. I just tried to login again and it thanked me for logging in, then booted me again, without giving me the opportunity to put in a password. I also searched here and found another thread about password protected galleries and added the code to showgallery.php that was recommended in that thread. It did help with one issue, where we would get booted everytime we tried to get past the first page in the password protected gallery after we logged in...but we still are having other cookie issues. Any other ideas what this might be?
