Mobile Phone Log In Problem
Posted by stikpusher on Tuesday, March 1, 2016 6:37 PM

One week ago, the forum went thru another revamp. Since then, I have not been able tolog into the forum using my cell phone, either by 3g network, or by a wi fi network. I know for some folks that this is no big deal as they have constant access to a desktop of laptop computer, but I do not 7 days a week. At least not at work or for much of the day. So please, can we get this issue corrected?

I am using an iphone and when I click on the "login" icons at the top and bottom of the page, nothing happens. The icons are dead to my phone since the revamp.

It must be something with the iPhone or Apple OS. I have an Android Samsung S5 Active and I am able to log in.

I am starting to think so. I used to have a Samsung phone and hated it. I will not be going back to one anytime soon. And unless the tech at FSM here get this issue resolved, it looks like I will be far less active here....Whistling

Have you tried installing a different browser on your iphone, Stik? Just as a test, I mean.

I can log in on my Android as well. Not that that helps you.

This needs to get sorted, we can't be losing you.

That is beyond my feeble skills... I have a couple of health apps on there and lots of music... not much room for anything else anymore

Stik, last resort ? Apple have an icloud? If so back up your phone to the cloud and reset to factory settings. Try connecting then, it might be that after the updates from factory settings something might 'give" and correct itself. Don't know what else you could try,or if all that is feasible for Apple products. Have you contacted Apple support? Not that it's their fault but I'd have more confidence in them than certain IT guys fixing your problem. Luck.

I'm exhausted having to log in EVERY day on all of my devices. I cannot figure out how to change my password, either.

Yes, Apple has an icloud. But no, I am not gonna monkey with things and risk screwing up my device or losing stuff. As much as I like this site, I can learn to get along without it.

GMorrison,

Our tech staff is aware of the "remember me" bug and are trying to resolve it. I'll let you know when I know something.

Stik,

They are also working on trying to figure out what is going on with the continuing problems you are having with the mobile connection. These problems are a priority, but it is taking them more time than expected to fix. I apologize for the inconvenience and hope you can be patient.

Cheers, Aaron

That's good to hear that FSM is working on it. I still have the same problems but it seems that I stay logged longer on my phone than on my computer. Hopefully the gremlin will be found.

Wow! It's back to normal on my side here. I wonder why you guys are still having those issues?

Hopefully your problems will be resolved soon.

Things are not getting easier. I'm getting randomly logged out on all of my pc's and my iPhone, every couple of days.

 

I'm frustrated enough that I'm losing interest in reading or posting. Yes, I hear the corks popping, but seriously this is dumb.

I'm not holding my breath for any fix. I pretty much now look but cant speak for about 2/3 of the time that I can be on here...
