Help, Please!

Post by TemerityB » August 19th 2020, 6:46pm

I keep getting logged out after I log on. I can log in to the site, but if I try to respond to a post or try to post myself, I get a message that says "you need to be logged in to respond to this post."

In other words - Help! I'm essentially locked out!

And, yes ... I seem to be "in" now. Quite disconcerting, however.

The site does this to me occasionally. Shows am signed in, go to portal, still logged in and then no longer logged in when try to look at threads.

The (firefox) browser on my Android does sometimes literally require a restart in order to "remember that it once was allowed to store the username/password and log me on automatically". I have this with access to other forums and services as well. I am too lazy to figure out why.

Update from me: I'm still having all sorts of problems. I primarily use a Chrome browser, and it just isn't working at all that way. I do have a backup browser (Brave), and I seem to be able to post there using that one. When I log in on Chrome, it just shoves me out no matter what I do. Interesting.

I think I kinda/sorta see what the problem might have been. But I'm still not sure. All I know is, the secondary browser seems to be AOK, so that's what I'll use. I'm strictly a PC guy, it's the only way I log in here.

A few things to try in Chrome:

Make sure cookies are turned on.
- Three dots in top right of URL bar
- Settings
- Privacy and Security on left
- Cookies and other site data
- Allow all cookies should be selected

If your cookies are turned on, clear your browser's cache. Note: While deleting your cookies may resolve the problem, it will also remove your saved settings for sites you've visited.
- 'Chrome' at top left of window
- Clear browsing data
- On popup window, make Time Range is set to 'All Time'
- Check top four boxes
- Clear Data
When done, Close and Reopen Chrome

Make sure you’re using the latest version of your browser.
- 'Chrome' at top left of window
- About Google Chrome
it will check automatically and prompt you to restart Chrome if there is an update

Thanks, racer. I actually think my problem might be caused my having two browsers running at once. I think perhaps the new software saw a second log in attempt. I'm just grasping at straws.
