Thanks in advance,

I’ve had to log in twice when coming to the site....like the “remember me” option didn’t work. Minor issue. But when I do enter my log in and password, I get sent to a “invalid redirect” error page . (I’ll include a screenshot next time I see it). The funny thing is that if I click the “forums” tab at the top of that page, I go right to the forum main screen and I am logged in.

Whether you are logged in or not, this is controlled by cookies. So it could be that your browser is set up to not allow cookies from the site, or is clearing them too regularly.
Check your settings, and if they are good then it could a corrupted cookie file causing it, so try cleaning out cookies and cache for your browser.

Also be sure to check off the 'Remember Me' box next to your login info. Let us know if that works for you and/or if you need further assistance.

The browser on my phone is the issue, and this is the only site that has the issue. And, it doesn’t forget me every time. As I said, that is just a minor annoyance. The bigger annoyance is that when I do log in, I get sent to the attached screen instead of back to the forum main page. 1FCFA931-DA69-4631-B82B-8629AA1B9B46.png

Also, I know there were other responses on this thread.....Did they get deleted by the posters (I know Cyorg was one of them), or did they just disappear, like he was complaining about?

It looks like Cyorg deleted his own posts. I'm seeing 4 that he deleted.

I'll have to wait for VS to weigh in on the mis-direction on login issue, though.

Yes I did. The link to the thread that went missing seemed to reappear on its own after a few days along with the posts that went missing, so the whole thing seemed rather redundant. The log in thing is very random and has been going on for quite some time. The site is frustrating at times, but the solution has been to spend less time on here and more time with the milling machine making engine plates etc, so not sure I want you to fix it.

Ps the auto save is working and if you see this, then that means I didn't get the "you must be logged in to do that" message when I hit "submit reply".

It's odd. I don't see this issue on my PC, or on this site on my phone. But I DO see it on one of my car sites, and only on my phone! I'll get them to look at it further.

Hey guys

Those experiencing the issue, can you check to see if you are coming to the site at first without the SSL certificate in place? You can tell by the address bar not having HTTPS at the front of the URL, or saying "Not Secure"

If you are coming to the site by way of a bookmark, you should try updating the bookmark to include the HTTPS version of the site address

I dealt with reports of the same behavior on another site that got the SSL cert, and this was the cause

And now, I am getting an Amazon pop-up every time I come to the site....and yes, it is showing secure SSL.

This is happening on both my phone and my laptop using Chrome and Wndows 8.1

I don't have any inside information about those, but my guess is they'll end with the end of Prime Day later today.

I post in the "what are you doing today thread".... it shows that I posted when you go to the forum main page and the post shows in my profile, but when you go to the actual thread, there is no post to be found.

perhaps it will appear at some point.... are you delaying posts to check for porn?

Looks like I need to run the database sync again. We're not holding any posts, and I can't get to yours either. Starting the rebuild now; should take a couple of hours to run. Should fix the issue.

And it appears to be fixed now. Let me know if you still have problems seeing the post.

Neil
I can see it now along with a bunch of other posts that had disappeared, so yes appears to be fixed. Thanks for that.... At the risk of sounding like an old curmudgeon, these episodes do discourage posting any thing longer than a bark or a grunt due to the fact that it might all just disappear..... not that I post much anyway... ever since TomRacer101 waltzed in here and changed some things in my profile I think twice about what I post and don't use PM.

We can appreciate that, but posts arent "gone" they are just unavailable for that moment. As Niall looked into a sync, looks like one was done and the posts are back. Keep posting, theres no reason to stop as anything can be fixed.

Glad to see its resolved though. If you see anymore, let us know.

Yeah, JB....Kevin gave me access to the rebuild tool here....but here only. Might be helpful if I had said access on my other vB sites.
