Login Weirdness?

Post by StevenO » Wed Sep 13, 2017 4:32 am

Not sure if anyone else is experiencing this, but I can't seem to login to here on my phone. It'll say I'm being logged in and it will take me to that intermediary page, but then the next page loads and it's telling me to login again.

This is only happening on my phone, for some reason.

yesterday - all day - it said the domain needed to be renewed and i couldn't bring up the site.

this morning it's working again for me but it would do the same login thing you mentioned. i opened up history and deleted/cleared cache, history, cookies, etc. now it seems to be working fine.

this was all on my desktop here at work. my phone loaded fine. odd shit is odd. full moon maybe?

And now the site doesn't work on my CPU, ONLY on my phone.

I was wondering why there was no mention of this on here. That was a pretty long outage. I don't use it on my phone but it's been good for me on my laptop. Sometimes you need to do a ctrl or shift while refreshing the page or clear out the cache before it recognizes that things are back to normal, if you haven't tried that yet.

What I'm finding out today is that using Chrome, I have problems, I'll log in and then be taken right back to the login page. I am still able to see the site despite not being logged in, though.

With Safari everything works as expected.

And yes, I saw all the "domain renewal" stuff yesterday as well.
So you have to ask from mother, "Who is my father?" And if she says, "This gentleman is your father," then it is all right. It is easy. Otherwise, if you makes research, "Who is my father?" go on searching for life...

Yesterday, no matter how many times I logged in in Chrome, it would take me to the homepage and not have registered my login (refreshing, going to a subform, etc wouldn't help).

Internet Explorer worked fine, though. And of course several times yesterday it told me the domain needed to be renewed. But today, no issues.

And how often do you get to say that? I think we should all take a moment and observe what we are seeing here. It may never happen again.

I have the same issues. With Chrome after login the site returns to the login page. On my work PC with firefox everything is fine :ph34r:

This is a result of the domain being redirected and Chrome overly agressively caching domains. If you're still having problems go into setting and clear your offline data. Otherwise, it should fully sort itself out in a day or so.
