in the last 24 hours I´ve been constantly asked to log-in when accessing the site through PC and mobile device, which is odd since I am (like most regular users, I guess) automatically logged in when I visit ER forums.
Further more, attempts to log-in were unsuccessful, I kept bouncing back to log in screen.
It is OK now, obviously, but want to know what´s the issue in case it reappears?

Same trouble earlier, and got bumped out just now, too.

I keep having to log back in, despite ticking the 'keep me logged in' selection - something's up!

Still having a slight issue.
If I log in and select 'view new posts' for instance I'm showing logged in. If I then click on the ER Discussion logo to go to the main discussion page it's as if I'm not logged in ? But I'm showing at the bottom of the page as being logged in ? :shock:

I blame the site admin.

I think he believes in the "set it and forget it" method.

ER could really use an overhaul/upgrade, everything its running on is ancientware..

Don't be a jerk. This site is very consistent and well-maintained.

I just noticed that I can navigate freely within the site but when I use my browser's favorites bar to get here, I have to log in again. But I can use the browsers back button and continue using the internal controls (board index, view new posts, etc.).

Another possible clue is that when I reply to a post the icon shows it as unread. I could swear that didn't happen before until someone else had replied after me.

Karl Erik is aware there have been some issues. He has done a graceful server reboot.

Nevertheless, the problem persists.

I was unable to log in for the last few days. I just tried something and now I'm logged in.


I use the Chrome browser. Selected "New incognito window". I logged in and instead of being bumped out, I'm still logged in.

I've not been able to login either. Tried this morning and have just tried logging in with a private window with Firefox - it works! Manythanks for the tip.

I have not had any issues, since I stopped using my existing bookmarks. If I load the page directly and log in, I have not had any issues since the reboot.

Worked here, too. I use "new posts" as my bookmark...I deleted it, went to ER and logged in, went back to "new posts", bookmarked it again, and now it works fine. Thanks, all.

I'm having the same problem. It's really annoying because I cant reply to old thread, because I'm constantly logged out. The only way to stay logged in is by going through the board index, which means I can only reply to new threads, or spend hours going through the pages. If I select from bookmark or history, I'm logged out again.

Oh, please do fix this...

Strange, it's been the opposite for me the last few days. If I log in and select "view new posts" it logs me back out, but when I click on the ER Discussion logo at the top it keeps me logged in.

I’m back to having to log in every time I visit the site.

And the mobile app Tapatalk no longer works.
