Hi

When I connect to my site (server) and enter the upload directory and login in from there,
when I return to the root, I'm not logged in. I am only logged in when in the upload directory!

Now if I go to login in from the root through the menu, it logs me in immediately upon clicking login from the menu.

One other little bug; when flattening the file listing ("file list"), the server favicon reverts to the icon in the HFS executable.

*Edit: This is a subdirectory related occurrence. It doesn't just happen with the upload folder. Not really a bug I think, just more
of a side effect.

I guess this is a browser cache issue. The browser serves the root from its cache. Pressing F5 should fix it.

i think it's not the cache: it's just how the browser was designed.
since it knows the root can be accessed without a password, it will not use it when you go back to it.

I think your seeing the same thing I commented on in this thread
http://www.rejetto.com/forum/index.php?topic=6843.msg1042365#msg1042365
some time ago. In this link, Rejetto gave some comments on this.
My solution was to design a cover page "gateway folder" that only used /~login to enter my server,
as I have a public web site, as well as a secure file server section. This allowed all macros to work.
