Hi


You can not log in with Chrome now even if you disable adblockers

and delete cookies --

at least I can not.

The Edge Browser will let me log in.

FYI

Yes, weird. I can finally reply here in Chrome, didn't try Edge/IE.
Got asked for login but could post an admin topic about deleted topics fine and login as well to Admin Control Panel.

Hmm, getting asked for login. No apparent difference like WWW. and www-less version of wwgfa.info.

We had something similar on our similar host, unexpected forum config. Last admin edit looks like good candidate (cookie settings).

[*]As announced, the reputation

[...]

you'll get a notification. You can turn that off in the User Control Panel.
[*]In that same Control Panel, you can also set the default width of the forum, and decide whether or not you want links to open in a new tab.
Penultimate option: ucp.php?i=ucp_prefs&mode=personal
(this width link works, but UCP link in post asks for login :hmm: )

(edit: Checking after posting, both links ask for login, then editing this post no hassle at all...)

Can log in via Safari but not Chrome

Post by devdas5z1 » Mon Dec 03, 2018 7:00 am

I have had a strange problem since the relaunch. Normally I use Chrome to login. I have the password saved in my browser, but it didn't work. So I tried logging in on Safari. On Safari the old password worked fine, but I noticed when I looked at my account settings that my password section was empty - no passwords were listed. So I changed my password. Again, the new password worked in Safari but not Chrome, and the password section in my account is still blank.

Thanks all for giving an overview of what works and what doesn't.
Please add your config for later reference.

Cannot find the option to revert back these cookie settings, not apparant in ACP.

As said, we had this stuff before couple months back in old settings. Shouldn't be much of a problem after tonight when Rommie logs in again.

What happens exactly when you guys try to log in?

It may have been because I had told the forum software we're on https now, but clearly it's not working yet. As a result, you get logged out each time you get redirected (like if you click on the banner about the forum being ready for use). I've turned it off again now. It's not effective immediately but it should start working again soon.

I can login everywhere, but when I'm on Chrome and not in incognito mode, my Malwarebytes extension blocks the site because it sees us as malicious for some reason. Probably has something to do with the https incongruity as well.

Let me know if this keeps occurring.
