Tutorial for allowing cookies from the SFWA website

For the best experience with the SFWA website, your browser must allow the use of two third-party cookies. (What’s a cookie?) To set your browser to allow cookies for SFWA but not from other sites, follow these instructions:

Internet Explorer 6

  1. Click Internet Options in the Tools menu, then click the Privacy tab.
  2. Click on the Sites… button. If the button is not clickable, then look at the vertical slider bar. If that slider bar is selected to Allow All Cookies, then the SFWA site should run fine. If it is set to Block All Cookies, then you must move the slide to the next setting (High) otherwise you will not be able to allow the SFWA site to use cookies.
  3. After clicking the Sites… button, type wildapricot.com into the Address of Web site: box. Click on the Allow button. Then, type sfwa-news.com into the Address of Web site: box, and click on the Allow button again.
  4. Click on the OK button, then the OK button on the next window.
  5. You’re configured!

Internet Explorer 7 and 8

  1. Click Internet Options in the Tools menu, then click the Privacy tab.
  2. Click on the Sites button. If the button is not clickable, then look at the vertical slider bar. If that slider bar is selected to Allow All Cookies, then the SFWA site should run fine. If it is set to Block All Cookies, then you must move the slide to the next setting (High) otherwise you will not be able to allow the SFWA site to use cookies.
  3. After clicking the Sites button, type wildapricot.com into the Address of website: box. Click on the Allow button. Then, type sfwa-news.com into the Address of website: box, and click on the Allow button again.

    You can use the section on Internet 7. I’ve added “and 8″ to that subject heading.

    Note _ I tried to log on with the “Manage Profile” box using my regular email address, and the temporary password I was sent. Login was denied…don’t know about cookies, as this is a library system, and I can’t change configuration.

    Thanks,George M. Ewing
