Oh okdid change my password 3 times🤣

Unfortunately the update was one of those mandatory, were going to do it no matter what without warning. There appears to be a small issue with the username password handoff between, the website and the forum, which is part of the issue. That issue caused the cookies to become invalid but not expire.

It looks like the update took most of the plugins authors by surprise as well, as they are all rushing to update their plugins and make fixes.

Hopefully we will not see this issue again, so you should only have to clear your cookies once, however there is no negative in clearing just the naksquad.net cookies, if for some reason you have to do it again. I have been able to make the cookies become unsynced again by moving back and forth between the forum and website in an unconventional manner that most users will not have to do. Clearing my cookies again fixed the issue.

what about from phone?
any idea?

Should be the same process

For phones I do not know if there is a way to clear individual site cookies but you can clear all cookies. Clearing all cookies should not have a negative effect, but you may have to relog into other websites. Most cookies do have an expiration effectively clearing themselves.
