    Something weird is happening lately… when I log in to the forum, the forum still shows me as not logged in… this tends to go for about an hour, and then I’m in and can post.

    Matt, please try to figure out what is happening…. I’m not the only one affected, and this is rather discouraging… waiting an hour to post means often that I would not be able to post.

    Happened again today. Required my log in and when I supplied correct info it wouldn’t accept it. I just left and came back later and I was logged in

    Happens to me every time now,…the wait time seems to be one hour… and unless I do get in, I cannot even see this thread!

    I think I’m giving up for now.

    I just went through it again. Tried to log in this morning and site was down. Tried later and required login but wouldn’t accept. Waited an hour or so and now I’m logged in. Sorry dunc.

    I just logged out and tried to log back in as an experiment. No dice! So I changed my password and still no dice. I got back in now through a pm notification in my email. I’m using firefox by the way.

    Another experiment. I went to explorer and logged in with no problems! Might be a firefox issue????

    Identical on my home computer, still hopeless.

    But from my work office machine used this moment, no problems.

    Firefox on both.

    I have had this problem off and on for a while. I only consider it a minor problem because it is usually working for me when I come back later.

    It happened again today and I noticed that although the page had seemingly loaded the tab (I’m using Firefox) still had the spinny thing going indicating it was still loading something. So I when to another tab to do something and can back after a few minutes and the spinny thing had stopped spinning, but the number of unread posts was still at zero.

    I then refreshed the page (clicking the circle arrow thing at the right of the address space) and up popped the number of unread posts.

    Other than the number of unread posts and the highlighting of those posts in the drop list of new/unread posts, the site has worked fine for me.

     

    I would suggest trying a page refresh when this happens.

    Refresh was tried every time, never helped.
    Attempts to login again (including with changed password) never helped.
    Coming back later (I do think 1 hour is the required amount) work, but :(
    Now, using MSIE instead of Firefox, as plaamoo suggested: mixed results. One time worked perfectly (instant login with MSIE), but the other time MSIE simply could not read seriouslyFish at all (while Firefox in another window could).
    And today (Surprise!) Firefox logged me in instantly, this has not happened for a month. I doubt this will continue …

    So yes, it does depend on the browser/computer used *somehow*.

    We’ve just updated the site and forum so guess this is a side-issue. Massive apologies guys, Dunc is looking at it.

    This should be working now – please post in here if you continue to experience problems guys.

    No improvement with Firefox, IE works on my home machine (but it did work before).

    I think this bug is somehow linked to negative time reported on the posts (like right this moment:

    Last Post mikev

    ) since in both cases the problem persists for one hour.
