This problem will occur if cookies are not enabled in your browser. In order to save sign-in information, you will have to enable cookies in your browser, or adjust settings in any third party cookie managing software you may have.
Please take note! Some people consider cookies a security risk, as they allow information from remote websites to be stored and retrieved from your computer. That being said, cookies are generally only used by the site that saved them to your system, so as long as you are careful about what you provide to any particular site, you can guarantee the security of your personal information.
However, if you are on a shared computer, ask or inform other users of the computer before making any changes to cookies settings. They may wish to keep the settings as they are or adjust their usage accordingly. If you're not sure if you want cookies enabled, ask someone knowledgable for advice, or call your Internet Service Provider for a more thorough explanation. It is your responsibility to ensure that any changes you make do not adversely affect yourself or anyone else using your computer.
To enable cookies, read the instructions below for your particular web browser. If you're not sure which web browser you're using, you can usually find it by going to the browser's Help menu, and then choosing the About option. Some browsers will also display this information on a "splash screen" while the program starts. If you're still not sure, or if your browser is not listed, contact your Internet Service Provider for further assistance in enabling cookies. If you are using an add-on cookie managing product, you will need to consult its documentation or contact the manufacturer directly.
If you find that enabling cookies in the methods described does not allow you to accept Blurty cookies and stay logged in, your browser or version may not handle cookies properly. Many users have been able to resolve cookie handling problems by upgrading to the latest version of their browser. It may even be necessary to try another browser if yours does not offer proper cookie support.
Internet Explorer 4.x, 5.x:
Click the Tools menu, then Internet Options. Select the Security tab. If your security level is set above Medium (ie High), or if it is set to Custom, you may either click the Default Level button to return settings to the default, or click Custom Level to edit the options manually. In the Cookies section, ensure both options are enabled, or at least set to "prompt", so you can decide on a case by case basis which cookies to accept (you will need to accept cookies from Blurty to save your login information).
Internet Explorer 6:
Click the Tools menu, then Internet Options. Click the Privacy tab, then do one of the following:
Option 1: Click Advanced. Ensure that First party cookies are set to Accept.
Option 2: Click Edit. Enter www.blurty.com for the site, and then click Allow. This will allow Blurty cookies, but not those from other sites unless they are defined in the list on this screen.
Netscape 4.x, 6.x, 7.x:
Click Edit, then Preferences. Expand the Privacy and Security tab, and click Cookies. On this page, ensure that cookies are not disabled (any of the other options are acceptable), and if you wish, you may place a check in the box allowing you to be warned before accepting any cookies.
Opera 6.x, 7.x:
Click File, then Preferences. Click Privacy. Ensure that Enable Cookies is checked. Then, in the first drop-down box, select any option except "Do not accept cookies". Any option can be selected in the second drop-down box, as they should all be compatable with Blurty cookies.
However, if you choose "Allow only cookies from selected servers" in the first box, you will have to add blurty.com to your server filters. To do so, click the Edit Server Filters button, and select "Accept From Domain" from the drop-down box. Then, enter blurty.com in the bottom text field, and click Add.
