Enable cookies ?

I Have been having problems logging into Chit Chat and after entering my password get a message that an error occured and to enable cookies ?
The odd thing is I can log into the Main PN site without a problem and it's only recently this message has appeared when trying to log into chit chat, any ideas ?

Re: Enable cookies ?

First thing to check are your cookies enabled?
Internet explorer:

  • Open Internet Explorer by clicking the Start button . ...
    Click the Tools button , and then click Internet options.
    Click the Privacy tab, and then, under Settings, move the slider to the top to block all cookies or to the bottom to allow all cookies, and then click OK.

From the Tools menu (Windows) or Firefox menu (Macintosh), select Options.
From the Options dialog that opens, select the Content option (globe icon).
Click the checkbox next to Enable Javascript.
Select the Privacy option (padlock icon)
Under the Cookies tab, check the Checkbox for Allow sites to set Cookies.
Click OK and close the Options dialog to apply changes.
Click the icon depicting three horizontal lines in the top-right corner:
Click Settings
Click Show advanced settings... at the bottom of the page
In the section entitled "Privacy" click the button Content settings...
You now have two options:
Automatic cookie handling (recommended)
In the section entitled "Cookies" select the option Allow local data to be set
Add exceptions manually
Click the button Manage exceptions...
In the column entitled "Hostname pattern" type into the text box
In the column entitled "Behavior" select "Allow"
Click Done
Click Done
Now if your cookies are enabled try clearing your cookie history
and to test if this is a browser issue or maybe a computer issue try a different browser
Good Luck!
