    I believe this is something to do with how your website is setup.

    Wordpress recently did a change on how it checks for cookies. It's possible that wordpress is trying to find cookes under the [url]http://7thbramshill.ukscouts.org.uk/[/url] but it's retrieving [url]www.7thbramshill.org.uk[/url] instead (or vice versa).

    Not at present I'm afraid (a little above my head I'm afraid).

    I've just done a quick google and many people have had this problem and blamed it on wordpress version 3.7.1 (ie. wordpress gets auto updated and the problem appears). There are various bodges suggested but I can't quickly find an obvious accepted solution.

    Hopefully all fixed - not a cookies issue. It's the errant space in the php file on line 69!
