Latest logon problems....

Postby Natano » Mon Mar 31, 2008 10:25 am

Is anyone else having serious logon problems?

Since this past weekend, I've been having numerous login problems. It seems to have coincided with the recent system upgrades. Now whether this is coincidental, I don't know, but the problems are consistent with both my work computer and my home computer. Basically what is happening is this:

1. my login is not being \"saved\", so I have to re-enter my username and password everytime, and
2. the flagging indicators for topics being already \"viewed\" is not operating correctly or consistently. Mainly, when I log in to see unread topics, I can see the \"yelowish\" indicator, but when I go into the topic, the particular \"unread\" postings do not show up as unread - they're all non-colored. Then, after I actually go in and read all of them (obvoiusly those at the top of the list are like the unread ones), and then get out of the topic, it still shows up as having unread postings (yellowish color).

I've already gone through the suggest fix by deleting the cookies, but oddly enough the cookie is only on my home computer - the site cookie on my work computer here cannot be located. I played with this all weekend, and couldn't get the home computer to work properly.

Anyone else having this problem????

I have no probs on my Mac's using Firefox, however yesterday I tried to log on and post from a friends PC with Explorer and had the same problem as you.

Or.......you might have gotten a virus from all that german porn you've been downloading.

Obviously it doesn't affect Macs! - I think it is time you all changed over to the other side :D

believe it or not my Mac Safari HAS been affected as well . . . no login probs, but when I click the "current posts" on the opening page, it clears to "0" and I have to manually go into "Forums" . . . life is tough . . . .

especially since I still don't have my RSK!

on principle alone, I am not willing to "clear the cookies" . . . I would think once you re-logged with your username and password and a keychain was set you would have a new cookie and then not have to sign in every time . . . hmmm

My work PC has all the problems described above. My Mac at home is OK, however it shows the forum sections with unread posts with an orange icon but doesn't show the individual threads within the main headings with unread posts as being highlighted.

It looks like the new updates DAve installed into the software have caused some of us problems. Lancelot, you can find your cookies and delete just the ones that say Spyderclub.

Everyone eles, I'm having the same problems and have to sign in every time. PITA

I don't have to sign in everytime, but when I click on \"view posts since last visit\" I get the following message: \"No topics or posts met your search criteria\" :( :(

BTW, I have a MAC...

yes, this is the issue Mac users are experiencing that we were discussing above.

I think I have the same thing that Niner is talking about -- on my PC at work, using Explorer. But I think my PC at home is OK using Firefox. I'll check it out tonight.
