We're moving...

This coming Sunday 13th June we're switching our main domain address from .co.uk to .com.

Hence our new main web address will be: www.trade2win.com

The reason why we're doing this is to better reflect the international mix of members now using the site. Ever since we made it a requirement to enter your location when joining, it's been interesting to see how many different countries are now represented on the site.

We're increasingly attracting new members from across the globe who recognise that much of the excellent content on the site is just as pertinent and rewarding to them as us local boys and gals.

The change of address will be transparent, any requests for pages on the .co.uk domain will automatically be redirected to the .com domain - unless you looked at the address in the browser, you wouldn't know anything had change.

All the same, please update your bookmarks and contact details for the site to reflect this - since all our .co.uk email addresses will now have a .com equivalent. For example the new main email address for the site will be [email protected]

Also in future if you're linking to our site from other sites (yes, we do get the odd referral, and it's much appreciated!) then please use .com rather than .co.uk

There will be no disruption to normal service and the change should kick in at 12:00am Sunday morning.

In the next few minutes we'll be making the switch to the .com address. If you're currently logged in to the site, you will automatically be logged out when the move takes place and will need to relogin with your existing details.

Normally we use cookies to keep you logged in automatically, but these work on the .co.uk domain only. Hence we need to set a new cookie for the .com domain to keep you logged in, and the only way this can happen is by requiring you to relogin.

We've now successfully completed our move over to the new domain. Apologies for any inconvenience caused by having to re-login.

One thought that springs to mind is that members may have set different security and privacy settings for particular websites. If you've added www.trade2win.co.uk in this way, then you'll need to replace it with www.trade2win.com. Not sure about the cookie requests, we haven't made any changes to the site code - we've just moved the domain.

hmmm...I said yes to that cookie creation and it definitely said that treade2win was trying to create a cookie....

I must check the Firewall settings just to make sure....

I presume drop down menu under 'discussion' would work then?

If anyone is having problems staying logged in please try the following:

1. Go to http://www.trade2win.com/boards/mycookies.php - this displays all the trade2win cookies you currently have stored on your pc. Tick ALL checkboxes and press the "Delete My Cookies" button. The page should then reload and show probably just two cookies (xid and RefererCookie). Then close all browsers and then open a new one logging back into the site.

If that doesn't work try the following:

2. Close all browsers and manually delete the cookies associated with the site from your hard drive. Then go to the site and login, then close the browser and open it again to the site, hopefully you should stay logged in.

If that doesn't work try the following:

3. Reboot your PC!

I had this problem when the site was upgraded last time. I am using Zonealarm and had popups disabled in the java script section of ZA, turning this off for the site fixed the problem. Not sure how Norton works but possibly you have them turned on for the .co.uk site but not for the newer .com site ? I found that the dropdown menus worked fine in Opera as ZoneAlarms was only fiddling with IE.

Also I had real problems yesterday with logging in, even though I had followed Sharky's advice and I could see the cookies being created. Everything fine today luckily and nothing changed on my end.

Let us know how you get on.

Not sure if this applies to all the site, but the threads with attachments previously seem to have lost them, I guess the links are pointing to the old domain ?
