It ALWAYS takes me 2 tries to log in
« on: March 31, 2011, 06:03:04 AM »
When I'm at the login page, I input my user ID, input my password, check 'stay logged in forever' and click.

I ALWAYS get an error that the login information is incorrect - and I know for 100% sure it is not (I've been testing this now for several days). 

Once I re-input my password and click again, everything is fine.  It's just very odd.  Wanted to let you know.....

Thanks.  This is the first time I've heard of that.  Have you tried different browsers to see if it makes any difference?

I have not.  I'm currently using IE version 8 (but I belive with 'Compatabilitly Mode' turned on).  I'll see what happeds w/ Firefox. 

EDIT:

Interesting, in Firefox it only takes 1 try.  I guess it's an IE issue.

When you log in in IE, do you do http://www.homebrewers... or just http://homebrewres.... ? I believe IE treats the cookie domains differently.

When I use Firefox I get the same thing. I just check the "Keep me logged in" box & hit enter. After it errors out I put in my userID & Password.  Started happening a month or 2 ago. Don't know if it was a Firefox upgrade or a website upgrade? I use this url to log into.  http://www.homebrewersassociation.org/forum/index.php?action=login   Cheers!!!
If Homebrew & BBQ aren't the answer, then you're askin' the wrong questions... Cheers!!!
