    Phoronix: Phoronix Premium & IRC

    With the start of a new month it's time to remind you that you can view Phoronix without any advertisements by becoming a Phoronix Premium member. Phoronix Premium members also get the benefits of viewing multi-page articles on a single page (similar to a "print view" mode) and other advantages...

    I paid for access a while back and have still yet to see pageless viewing of the site. I've never seen ads cause I run adblock but it would be nice to get seamless viewing of longer articles.

    Do you not see the block at the top of each article that says "View As Single Page" when you are logged in?

    Do you have cookies enabled in your browser? Once you log into the forums and go to the main site, you still should be logged in and it will show the show on a single page option has been mentioned.

    Yep. Running a fresh install of 8.10 on a new drive. I can log into the forum then tell it to remember me. Then clicked on phoronix.com and still shows the ad free browsing on the top right corner. I checked the settings and it shows the cookies are enabled and set to only be removed when they expire.

    Try logging out and logging back in, does it still happen?

    I've logged out and back in on numerous occasions across several computers on multiple operating systems (however the only browser I've tried is Firefox) but its never shown me anything but what I've seen and I've never seen the page with out the ad free reminder in the top corner.

    Edit: Not sure if you've changed something since I posted but it has just started working..... So.... Thanks!

    If you're still having problems, try this link: http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...num=1&single=1 with the &single=1 at the end where it works if you're logged in to premium it will show it on a single page.

    From my own experience the main page doesn't deal with cookies very well. I need to go to the forums and the go back to the main page every time for it to recognise my premium account. I don't have much interest in the forums here and that was just a little too much effort for me. I paid the subscription to support the site more than anything else but I have to admit that I was frustrated more than once by that. It kinda put me off renewing my subscription.
