Another LOGIN problem
Posted by johnn on Sunday, May 25, 2003 2:40 PM
I'm still having problems getting through the login process. Like the previous post, I keep getting bounced back to the login page after I get a "login was successful" message.

Help---- I'd like to be able to participate here.

Thanks

Are you logged in after you 'log in' the second time? That's how it was for me, I'd have to log in twice. Now I've been trying to figure out a solution and the only one I've come up with so far is...When I click on my favorites link to take me to the forum page and the log in page comes up, instead of just logging in I click on the forum link on the left hand side of the page and log in when that page comes up. So far that seems to be working for me. It seems to be a kind of round-a-bout way of doing things but it's all I've got so far.

David, have you had any epiphanys on the subject yet?

I had the same problem. Each norning when I would log on to the site it would kick me back. It only happened one time each morning. All other log in produced no problem for the rest of the day. I was on the site one night past midnight when I was suddenly kicked back to the sign in screen. I then realised why. I have a program that runs at midnight that goes through my system deleting internet history and cookies as well as performing a disk cleanup. I went into the utility program and un checked the box that deleted cookies. Now I can log on at any time and get in on the first try. If you clear your internet history and delete the cookies, that prevents you from getting in on the first try. The program is designed to read cookies and if none are present on the first attempt it will load then into your history and kick you back to the log on screen. When you log on again, it reeds the cookies and it will let you enter. That is what was causing my problems and how I solved it.

I'm having the same problem as well. I haven't cleared out my history or cookies for a couple of days ( I clear out cookies manually so I don't delete cookies that I want to keep) and I am still having to log in twice. Does FSM have any suggestions or solutions?

Next time when you're logging in and it doesn't work, could you copy and paste the url of the page you attempting to login from and the page you end up at? You can paste the url right into your reply.

One thing I wanted to mention (although it doesn't sound like it's the problem) is if you use different computers you'll run into a situation similiar to this. The authentication process issues a "key" (which is stored in your cookie) that is verified every "x" minutes. If the key matches to the original, a new key is issued. If the key doesn't match, you're bumped out.

If you're using the same computer, it's not a problem. If you're switching between computers, everytime you login with one computer you're invalidating the key on the other computer.

My solution was this. I went back and double-checked the url of my bookmark. I don't know if FSM changed around some of the pages or something internally but I noticed that the url was slightly different. I replaced my bookmark with an updated url directing me to the main forum page and I haven't had any more problems. That was about a week ago, actually maybe the same day even as my last post in this thread. Anyway, that seems to be working for me. It might be worth a shot. This may be what David is trying to get at by asking for the urls.

Thanks for all the help--I've tried all of these but I am still having problems logging in from home--in fact, I haven't been able to get logged in at all since I made the first post. Oddly--I can log in at work.-----hmmmmmm---might be a bit of a conflict there!

Thanks again--I'll keep trying.

Johnn, it may be a problem with some of your internet settings possibly. Maybe something to do with your "cookie" settings. What browser are you using? The fact that you can log in at work would suggest some software conflict since the problem is isolated to your home computer. Have you tried logging in at a friend's house?

We'll get this licked yet.

heylonghair--

Thanks for the info. I am running ie6.0.2800.1106. I've downloaded all the latest updates for ie. I have tried all the things that have been suggested. I've deleted all of my cookies, cleared my history, tried logging in multiple times per session, and logging in from the green sidebar. Every time it tells me login successful and then bounces me back to the login page. I am able to access my profile and change my password. I have even tried setting up a new user account--actually, this one is my second. Every time it is the same thing. I agree it is something about my computer--of at least something about my computer that this sight doesn't like. I must admit that I am stumped. Oh well at least I still have the mag.

Wow, John. Yeah, that's a stumper alright. I can't think of anything else off-hand either. It sounds like you've done your fair share of troubleshooting. Computers...don't ya love 'em?!?Wink [;)]
