    Default Just curious - sign in twice? First attempt rejected.

    Just curious. Does this happen to anyone else?

    I've been on SOTW for years now, and starting a couple of weeks ago, when I enter my username and password I get an error message in effect telling me either my name or password is wrong.

    So I repeat the process, and I log in.

    At first I attributed it to a typo on my part. I have typos built into my fingers (they came as standard equipment) and I even have Type O blood

    So for the past two log in attempts, I entered my info carefully, making sure I made no mistakes, and I still had to log in twice.

    No, I'm not complaining, it's no big thing at all. Just wondering if the problem is on my end or the system's end.

    Difficult to say from the distance.
    Could be either way. Most important that you are happily in now

    Yes, I'm in. I'm glad it isn't blocking me, and entering my name/password is no problem, not even an irritation.

    If nobody else reports the problem, I'll assume it's on my end. But it does happen only with SOTW and on both Firefox and Chrome browsers so it'll be hard to track down if it's my problem. So if it's me, I'll probably continue to log in twice.

    If you're using Windows 10, I think that's a Windows feature, or enhancement...

    Same thing here. I'm on a Mac. I just ignore the error message and click on Forums or New Posts and it takes me there anyway and when the window refreshes it shows that I'm signed in.

    Interesting. I'll try that next time. I got the message again today. I'm using Win10, but I don't get the message with other forums, some of which also use VB software.

    If others are experience the same thing (thanks for your comments) I'll consider it a problem here at SOTW and as long as I can still get in, I won't worry about it.

    I've had the same problem for awhile now, not sure if it correlates with my unwilling upgrade to Windows 10 or not but it started around the same time. The solution here works, just ignore the error and go to the forum and you're in!

    I just started experiencing that this morning on my iMac. It had already begun several days ago on my iPad.

    Now, with my desktop this AM, I had to sign in (and check the REMEMBER ME box); then when I again tried to open the site later, it came up that I had to sign in again. Then, I clicked on FORUMS, and it went to my sign-in page where it had me logged in.

    While I can endure the additional steps, it sure isn't like the site has been for all the years I've been a member. DAVE

    I get problems with Chrome, so have stopped using it.

    Just posting a message causes me to get logged out.

    This thread may help, https://forum.saxontheweb.net/showth...57-Login-Issue My post has how to fix your bookmark in Chrome.
    I used Maddenma's link. If you are using bookmarks or similar, try using this address which worked for me https://forum.saxontheweb.net/showth...57-Login-Issue

    Thanks, Bruce. That corrected MY problem. Using a Mac . . . I went to Bookmark - favorites, control-click on the SOTW logo, removed the old address, inserted the new - https - address. And VOILA! DAVE

    The staff and members here are a great help, thanks!
