For a couple of days, I have been trying to update my PrimeGrid preferences, but when I click 'Update', the parameters don't change. I know there is a delay effecting BOINC Manager, but I am not referring to that. I mean the Preferences page that you see before making the changes doesn't change. I've made changes before, so I know how it's worked before. But now it seems that my preferences are frozen.

This is a hard one with out being a mod, but all I can do to try to help you with this kind sir is tell you I just now went and put one of my computers to the "school" option which I don't use normally and had it to only do TPS, checked that box and clicked update. I then went to that computer and clicked on the boinc projects tab and clicked PrimeGrid and then clicked update, 2 secs later it sent a few TPS's to that computer that normally sieves as a home computer. I am not saying your not having a problem a mod could check your account and see if it is some how "Frozen" as you say but unfortunately I am not a mod even though I am on this page almost 24/7. Hope I helped in some way, if not I am sorry kind sir.

A couple of days ago I was changing my PG resources to change the subproject I was working on to 32-1 for just one WU. I then changed it back to my usual. Apparently I didn't click the Update button in my BOINC manager, because it was also stuck on the 32-1 and downloaded extra WUs of that project. I tried changing my prefs on the website, without Updating through the Manager, and it was still stuck. Once I hit the Update button, everything worked fine. I don't remember if it was an issue before.

All is NOT well with me. I tried it again, and it still does not update. Updating at BONC Manager, restarting the preferences page. restarting my computer -- nothing helps. I even tried changing other parameters -- it doesn't matter.

There isn't a 'logout' button like on some web sites. I just closed the window. As for logging in, I get the preferences web page from BOINC Manager: select the PrimeGrid project, then click the 'Preferences' button. I don't need a password this way.

I hope you understand I am just trying to help you my friend, I would say try to set up a password, log in, log out then log in again and see if that fixes it. Let me know I will try everything I can to help you. Post your results and we can figure this one out as a team.

Hmm, Morgan the Gold here still playin' with Ben's Machine .

Even using the logout on the home.php and logging back in , I can't get the preferences "Permission is given to PrimeGrid to report primes under my name" or even the checkboxes to work or not @ whatever subproject, to update. Clicking update gets the reply "preferences are updated ..." but they clearly haven't changed :(

my machine, my account, identical actions succeed , lol .

I was having problems changing my primegrid prefs using Opera. I then tried changing them using Safari and everything worked fine. Opera worked the last time I changed my prefs which wasn't that long ago.

It doesn't seem to matter which browser one uses. I have IE7, Firefox, and Safari on my PC and they all require a log-out/log-in to fix the prefs.

Perhaps the PrimeGrid webmaster made a change?

There *is* a log-out button: goto "Your Account" and notice the different sections. The first is Account Information, then Preferences. Just above Preferences you'll see the words "Log out" -- click that. Click the "Your Account" on the left side of the browser window and log back in to alter "PrimeGrid Preferences".

Works for me.
