I cannot login into Javaranch if I disable cookies in my Internet Explorer. Just wondering why? Does it not support URL rewriting?
or is it something else I have done?

many thanks

It does not support URL Rewriting at the moment.
A lot of Java ranch is written in Java (and the percentage is increasing) but the core of the forums is still a CGI application and requires cookies for logins.

Thanks Ben,
But what I couldnt understand is that when I entered my username and password, it wouldnt accept it. URL Rewriting isnt needed for this right??
I mean for the first attempt to login. For future clicks or sessions I understand that there is a need for this.

Thanks again!

Honestly, I don't know.
I've never looked at the code for the login.

If cookies are required to do anything after a login, it would make sense to me that the forum software would try to let the user know that they need cookie support as soon as possible so they don't waste a lot of time trying to log into a system that won't allow them to do anything.

Hmmm. I thought we used to have some message about cookie enablement being required, but I don't see it now.
