I haven't done anything at all to the Café in at least two months, so it couldn't possibly be anything I've done, directly or indirectly.

The best way to clear it is to search your cookies folder for specific files. If you have the ability, use the "containing text" option and type in "themagiccafe.com/forums" (without the quotes). This will find all cookies related to the Café, whether using the www in the address or not. Deleting all you find will take care of it. You will have to log in again though, as this also deletes your login cookie. For best results, do this while your browser is closed.

When you reopen your browser and come to the Café, all of the cups should be one color because there's no cookie for the site to read. After that they should work normally.

The biggest problem is having duplicate cookies, and since people post links to other topics within the Café, there is really no way to avoid it. Let's say you've bookmarked the Café using www in the address. Ok, you've got a cookie with the www. Somebody posts a link to a topic without the www and you click the link to read the topic. Now you've got another cookie without the www. When you go to another page the site reads both cookies and gets confused as to which one to use. That's what "breaks" the cups.

Ok Gene, I have a new one for you. (see above) I had trouble with the "cups" never showing any changes when there were new updates. That started working all by itself. Now though, the cups are all red and won't change even after I have read the new posts and no updates to that forum have been made. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Is there anyway to automatically delete all but the log-in cookie?
I'm sure there is a script that can do it, but that's above my head.
