login issues Can't Post

Something weird . . . I can go to the PW site and login, but when I go into the Speakeasy I'm automatically logged out. . . anyone know what's going on?

Re: [alamana] login issues [In reply to] Can't Post

If you can give me a few details, I should be able to help. The Speakeasy login is integrated with the site, so if you were actually logged out, you wouldn't be able to post. I checked your account, and it seems to be properly linked to the Speakeasy. Is it when you go back to the site that you're logged out?

Re: [jason] login issues [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi Jason!


I’m using Safari to go to www.pw.org. When I get there, I can see that I’m logged in. I click on the Speakeasy link, and it takes me to the Speakeasy, where I’m suddenly logged out. So on the Speakeasy page, I click on “click here to login,” and it takes me to “My Poets and Writers” where it says “Welcome Alamana” and I appear to be logged in. I go back into the Speakeasy, and I’m logged out and can’t post.
The reason I can post in here now is because I’m using Firefox on someone's computer —and that lets me in. I only have Safari on my computer at home.

Re: [alamana] login issues [In reply to] Can't Post

Okay, here are a couple of things to try:
1. If you're using the "Remember Me" when you login, try going to pw.org, log out, then log back in and see if that fixes it. Sometimes, the login cookies get out of sync. This should fix it.
2. If that doesn't do it, try making Safari clear it's cache (clear all website browsing data, I think it's called), to force it to reload the Speakeasy pages.

Re: [alamana] login issues [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm having similar problems. The system says I'm not logged in, but when I click the Log In option, it says I'm already logged in. Then when I go to the Forums, it doesn't show any new posts.

What happens when you log out and then log back in?

Re: [Ismael] login issues [In reply to] Can't Post

Ismael, it sounds like you are having the exact same problem I had. . . For everything to work, I have to go to P&W, log out, go the Speakeasy, click the login link there, login, and then go back to the Speakeasy. A bit of a pain, but it works.

The same thing happens. I get no new posts appearing in any of the threads. I don't have this problem from my computer at work. Do you have Mac users reporting this kind of problem?

I forgot to add that it is only happening in the Writing and Publishing section. The most recent post I see there is dated September 22.

Re: [Ismael] login issues [In reply to] Can't Post

Something strange is also happening with my computer, a mac. I wasn't seeing the most recent posts (stuck on September 27), but through a series of random clicks I can't possibly explain (much like adjusting rabbit ears on t.v.s in days of yore), I managed to get to the newest posts. Don't know what the deal is.

This sounds like your browser is considering its cached version as current and refusing to show the current page. Have you tried clearing your browser's cache? That should force it to pull the fresh page.

I logged all the way out and back in and am still having issues -- including having to ALSO refresh a subforum's listings to see new threads.

Firefox is generally better about retrieving fresh pages than the Webkit-based browsers, but under OS X often still requires a shift-refresh to force it to retrieve the updated page. Is Firefox set up to use a Web proxy by any chance? On most FF versions, it's in options->advanced->network->Configure how Firefox connects to the Internet. If it is, try changing it to "No proxy" and see if that helps.
***NOTE: This may not be appropriate for machines on corporate networks that require the use of a local proxy.

Re: [jason] login issues [In reply to] Can't Post

Changed to "no proxy" from "use system settings proxy" (approximately), but no soap. Subforums still don't come up when I click on them. I have to refresh. Thanks for trying, Jason.


I've been on the forums for a couple years, by the way, and never had this problem.

That's what's so strange about it. Nothing on the Speakeasy side changed with the recent upgrade. I'll see if I can duplicate it with any of the Macs at the office. If so, I should be able to track down what's going on.

Re: [jason] login issues [In reply to] Can't Post

I spoke too soon. Now I'm having the same issues. I can log in and get the updated pages then if I look at posts in one of the forums and click back on to the Main Index, it logs me out. Trying to log in again, it takes me to my profile page, saying I'm already logged in. I can get back to the updated, logged-in Main Index page through a series of clicks but I have to do that every time I try to view new posts on each separate topic.

I'm having the same kind of log-in issues too! The system keeps booting me out every time I change from one screen to another.

Re: [belgium] login issues [In reply to] Can't Post

I've been getting error messages all day when I try to login. When I finally get in, it will say that there are 2 (or whatever) new posts in one of the forums, but when I click on it and try to follow the thread, it takes me to the first page of the thread and doesn't show me the new posts. It seems as though the thread memory is completely gone.

I'm also on a Mac and use Safari as my browser. Everything seemed to be working fine for me up until yesterday.

I'm having login issues too. Also on a Mac. I use Safari as my browser.

Tried to post something a few minutes ago and my post never showed up. Thread memory isn't working for me either.
