Cannot log on

Post by Jeffe on Fri Sep 02, 2016 8:58 am

Hi Pat. I cannot log on with my iPad but I can with my iPhone!!! It appears that as soon as I hit the log on icon, a number of randomly selected web sites appear thus preventing me from logging on. I suspect they are related to those infernal pop ups!!! Any thoughts??

Ditto, tried on my ipad last night, sends me straight to the log on password page then defaults to random pop up sites. Tried on my wifes Kindle Fire and exactly the same.

Hmmm, I don't see that with my iPad, but have seen there have been some issues raised on the support forum. 

I'll look into it a bit deeper.

Anyone else have issues Question

Forumotion have posted that this issue should be fixed in a couple of hours. Other forum admins is have mentioned that a refresh after opening the login page can help (worth a try)

I have moved this topic so it can be seen without logging in to the forum

Ok on Hudl using Android, except having to log on nearly every time recently despite log in details supposedly saved, but not really a problem scratch
Just seen your "refresh advice" Pat Wink

Could the problem be I am using three items, tablet and, mobile both on Android, and a desktop  (dare I say) on Vista, (basically used just if i want to print,) must get a new compatible printer next time, but using up a stash of ink cartridges!

That shouldn't be an issue Derek

No doubt Forumotion have been playing with the servers and I have synchronised the forum a couple of times recently which might be why you are having to log back in

Tried the refresh option but still no joy!! I'll try again later today. The problem with using the iPhone is that it doesn't offer full functionality!!

You probably get the mobile version by default Jeffe.

You should be able to switch over to the classic version.
If I recall correctly there is a small menu icon in the top right of the screen.

Apparently, clearing your browser cache may also help with this issue.

Pat, I think I have resolved this problem using an ad blocker. Thanks anyway. Wink

OK, thanks for letting me know Jeff

The ads pay for the forum, I can block them all for a fee...a bigger fee and I can block them for guests (i:e if you're not logged in) which would have been required in this case. But as I already pay a fee for the storage space for the photo galleries it'll have to stay if it's going to remain a free forum

Pat -  did I just understand you are personally paying for an aspect of a forum that is free to other members? That's plainly unfair to you. Would a sub from members be appropriate? I remember Bill who ran the original forum had hinted at a sub but in the end didn't seem to bother tho' many members were quite happy to contribute as I'm sure would be the case now. I'm personally glad no ads after logging in. So many intrusive ads everywhere else its a pleasure to be free of them here.

I pay for the gallery storage space Stephen, it's not much and I'm happy to swallow that.

There are two levels of ad removal, members and members/guests, the later beng twice the price. To get rid of the ads at login we would need the later, at the moment we have neither. 

I must admit that I haven't found the ads too intrusive until recently....Forumotion are getting a fair amount to pressure to resolve the issues, hopefully it'll be back to normal soon. 

If there is enough pressure from the members of this forum to make it ad free, I could set it up that people willing to make a small contribution to the running costs could buy a few points...the more points the more features.

Pat i run a forum through forumotion and have been having the same problems for a week or so now.
I dont pay for storage space through people use image hosting sites to post there photos.
I bought credits this morning funny enough to take of the adds in the short term till its sorted.
Think its was 200 credits for a month £5.
 
Ive had a lot of good imfo from this site so dont mind putting something back into it.

It's not daft money, although buying by the month is an expensive way of doing it. 

Hosting sites for posts, gallery for extra photos.
I think it's quite nice to be able to have numerous photos of our boats in one space Smile
