Login wierdness


Login wierdness
#1
As an FYI, for the last 24 hours I have been unable to login. Despite my user id and password being correct, it would display a message about an authentication issue. I don't have the exact text of the error message to hand.

Over the space of about 12 hours, I tried 3 or 4 times to use the "Forgot password" link. Although I followed the steps that were indicated, the (temporary) new password which was assigned failed to log me in. Finally I have been able to login today with the temporary password assigned to me 19 hours ago which did not work yesterday.

Yes I have fat fingers but I do not believe that was the cause of the issue. Someone may want to check if something untoward has been happening. Needless to say, I could not login to post a message to say that I could not login!

Sorry about that. I upgraded the forum software and there was a template issue preventing login. This is now fixed.

Thank you. Glad to know my fingers were working as expected.  Wink
