It used to be that when I clear all registered sessions VIA clear private data in Firefox that I always became logged off on Ozzu.com. I just now cleared all registered sessions THRICE and I'm still logged on to Ozzu.com and am able to post. Weird

[EDIT] I just now cleared the cookies and became logged off... does this thing uses coookies?

PHP sessions use cookies by default.

I've never known any phpBB board that doesn't use Cookies for the sessions.

I've seen older phpBB2 boards that used the SESSID URL parameter, but yeah, you rarely see that anymore since most people are over the "cookie scare".

Some PHP applications allow you to choose how you want to save session data. Cookies are the default method, but URL variables and cache files are some other alternatives. The CakePHP framework gives you this option, although I can't see any good reason for not using cookies these days.
