Matt Busby – have you tried deleting your browsing history?

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, let it roll for all its worth. And all the children boogie.

Here’s something odd that’s been happening to me in the past week.  I log in, and when it returns me to the Forums page I’m not logged in.  It can happen several times in a row, enough to make me give up for the time being.  I’ve tried refreshing, closing/re-opening tab, closing/re-opening browser, and rebooting – none seem to make a difference (although the sample set is small).  If it’s not happening to anyone else, it probably is on my end though.

Same here and I have tried clearing cache and history etc etc.  I am logged in while in a sub-forum but then logged out on the main forums list.

Can you try again? I had installed a plugin to try to prevent some of the spam registrations we’ve been having, but I think it might have done some odd things. I had problems logging in this morning until I disabled it.

If you get the “Please log in to post” messages even after logging in, just try opening a thread. Hopefully once you’re inside it works OK. Sorry everyone.

No need to be sorry, Joe. You were trying out something you thought would help the forum. I don’t think we give you enough apples in appreciation of the work you do for the forum. Here are some apples from all of us apple01apple01apple01

As AG says – no worries.  Working ok for me now.

Well thanks to Joe for fixing the site again.  I was unable to log in for about 3 days, and at first, I didn’t realize I could still contact people here while logged out — so I went searching for “Beatles Bible” on Twitter, Facebook, etc. and left frantic pleas blue-meanieout in the “Cloud”…

Just to add, there’s a login limit which stops people trying to brute-force entry. If someone tries 20 times they’ll be locked out for 72 hours. If you think you’ve forgotten your password use the reminder function rather than guessing, if you don’t want to risk being locked out. I might lower the 20 attempts limit in future, as it seems a bit generous.

Well – I almost failed that ‘human verification’ thing – must be a cause of worry?

I sat and stared at it for what seemed hours – completely flummoxed as to why my last brilliant post failed to register :)

Joe mentioned to the mods in an email that he set up the drag-and-drop thing for registrations. I see that we are having to do it with each post now. There may just be a switch he needs to flip to make it for the registration process only.

I can’t drag and drop on my phone. Another member PM’d me to say the same thing. Joe will get to it when he has a moment to check on it.

That’s about the 4th or 5th time someone in this Forum made me laugh out loud today – thanks! apple01

Has a thread accidentally been lost, or its title changed? Because I have a new notification telling me a post has been moved to Rare Beatles Vinyl? (Mis-Prints etc), but when I click on it it comes up that the thread doesn’t exist.

I found the thread using a Google search and using a forum search. I’m not sure why it isn’t linking up properly when you click on it. I will have to do some more investigation.
