Q & A "Is there a way to lock onto the Henna for Hair forum as "home?""

You can make the forum site or any specific forum a default page in your favorite Web browser or you can drag-and-drop a shorcut to your desktop by dragging the henna leaf icon in the address window of your browser. However, because of a security protocol I'm running on the server, you will have to log in each time you want to access the forums. I know this isn't as convenient as the persistent login on the old forum, but that was a huge security hole that had to be closed.

The session cookie your browser receives from the server has a time limit and expires immediately when you close your browser window. The server will also automatically log you out after 15 minutes of inactivity. I know this seems a bit draconian compared to the previous versions of the forums but the online world is a very different place than even five years ago, when we set up our first database-driven version of the forums. Tight login and session management procedures are a "best practise" and a necessary one with all the security threats in the wild these days.
