Hmm, Opera won't put any veggieboard pages in its history list -- and the "re-open pages in opera that you had open when you closed opera" feature won't open veggieboard pages either.<br><br><br><br>
All other internet and intranet addresses seem to go into the history correctly. And Microsoft Internet Explorer correctly puts veggieboard addresses into its history.<br><br><br><br>
Hmmm.<br><br><br><br>
Yes, I tried clearing the cache and the history but still no go.

I've noticed that too. See if this helps at all...<br><br><br><br><a href="http://my.opera.com/forums/showthread.php?threadid=11451&highlight=open+startup" target="_blank">http://my.opera.com/forums/showthrea...t=open+startup</a>

After being up all night i figured out it was cookies. I temporarily removed the cookies4.dat file and veggieboards starting showing up again in the history (global.dat) and when I re-started opera. Logging out of veggieboard and then logging back in, in the hopes that his would fix a corrupted cookie, didn't help.<br><br><br><br>
Turning off cookies altohgether, in opera prefernces, helped. I tried using Opera 4 File explorer (O4FE) (at <a href="http://users.westelcom.com/jsegur/" target="_blank">http://users.westelcom.com/jsegur/</a> ) to selectively delete only veggieboard cookies -- and it didn't help! However I started a second opera user profile by putting a new opera6.ini file in a new directory, and things worked fine. Perhaps the size of the cookies4.dat file has something to do with the problem. The new profile of course had a smaller file.<br><br><br><br>
By the way, both users can open a window at the same time! The opera knowledge base splains how to do this "multiple instances" thing, here: <a href="http://www.opera.com/support/search/supsearch.dml?index=288&session=d14fb1e6015af46351ee12d6059dc317" target="_blank">http://www.opera.com/support/search/...ee12d6059dc317</a><br><br><br><br><br><br>
I also noticed i had the same problem with another site running vbulletin -- the opera forums! So it may be a problem with the way vbulletin writes or reads cookies, and not a problem with opera.

If i log out the new page that comes up shows up in Opera's history list. Log-in -- and pages stop showing up. Something about veggieboard's and other vbulletin web site's cookies are preventing opera from putting the pages from these sites into its history file. Maybe if you fiddle with the way you've set vb's cookies to work, opera might put vb in its history list. It's probably a good idea from the standpoint of enabling people who have visited vb to find it again, should they need to go thru their opera history file to do so.<br><br><br><br>
VB pages seems to go into i-explorer's history just fine.

OK, after 48 hours without sleep (I couldn't sleep until I figured out how to do this), I finally figured out how to get opera to remember what veggieboard pages you were on (except for a page where you enter a password).<br><br><br><br>
Before loading any Veggieboards pages, go to Preferences, Privacy, and uncheck "use cookies to trace password protected pages." Leave the box unchecked, and make sure it remains unchecked when you exit Opera. See the precautions in the helpfile tho, before unchecking this box (you may have password-protected pages remaining in your cache, for others to see).<br><br><br><br>
In the process of trying to figure this out, one good thing tha came out of it is I learned how to load separate customized instances of opera, simultaneously. Well, maybe that's not so good, maybe I wasted my time -- because the newer version that I don't have yet, apparently comes with this feature built in.
