Login Problems


    I’ve had issues staying logged in. 

     When I login successfully on my Android  and go to post an answer,  it will bring me back to the login page which erases the answer I just typed. Frustrating. Like it logs me out every time I open a different question. 


    Note: One partial work around I found was to go to the page where I want to answer and click the blue ‘+’. The button is is supposed to be for asking a new question, but if my login didn’t stick, it will bring me back to the login page so I don’t waste my time typing the response.  If I AM logged in, I can simply scroll past the ‘new question’ box and type the and reply and post successfully.

      Sometimes if I just refresh my Android browser on the TMB home page it shows me as logged in. I’ve been having the same problem as you when in the Chrome browser on my phone.

        I’ve had issues with my IPhone too. Navigating to certain questions logs you out and requires you to log back in to post an answer. Then, when you log back in and navigate back to the same question you’ll find you’re logged out again, an endless loop.

        It’s why I haven’t participated as much lately.

        That’s frustrating and sad, all at the same time.

          I know this doesn’t help much…. but to help ease one frustration and to prevent you from losing all of the time and energy you invested to share any wisdom you have, before you hit “post answer”, just take the safety-net step of copying your answer first.  That way, when you do log back in, all you have to do is “paste” it.

          I don’t know about the others but in my situation “Post Answer” is grayed out and won’t let you select it until you attempt to login which requires going to a different view and when you come back you’re logged out again.

            Okay, now I am starting to get “kicked off” much more frequently and having to “log in” (Android)

            @Dale, is this from changes on your end, or has the system done some kind of update and have a glitch or a bug?

              I have found that refreshing the page takes care if it.
              I have to refresh each new page I want to post to. But at least I don’t have to type in login again.

                I have not found a fix, but I may have a workaround. I run multiple windows, and I almost never get logged out.

                I suggest right-clicking and opening in a new window, especially for PMs.

                If this helps let me know.
