View Full Version : Anybody having trouble logging in?

05-24-2004, 03:17 PM
I registered on this site earlier today and logged on with no problem. Now, I opened the page again and tried to sign on, but I can't. Is anybody else having this same problem? I tried deleting the cookies for this page, but it doesn't seem to have helped.

The site does use cookies to keep you logged in. My first suggestion would have been to delete them and/or make sure you have your cookie settings low enough that you can use the website (or add the arkgeo cookie to your list of allowed cookies).

Since you already covered that - check the date on your pc. I accidentally set mine forward and it kept logging me back out, til I realized what the problem was (it was so far ahead in the future the cookie wouldn't work).

I've had one other person report a login problem, but when he contacted me and we tried to troubleshoot it we could not make it happen again.

What happens when you try to log in? Invalid user warning, or something else? :?:

I've had some problems, too. Didn't say anything, cuz I figured it was just me. :? Here are my symptoms: Often, when I try to login, I enter my username, password, and code and it just takes me to the profile page, but does not log me in. I don't get any kind of error or message, it just doesn't login. This happened to me earlier this evening. I tried for about 20 minutes to login, deleted cookies, reboot, etc. to no avail. Came back in about an hour and it let me login. Not sure I can reproduce this problem, though. Once I get logged in, the cookie seems to be working. Southdeltan, are you logging in from different machines?

I was logging in from different machines, with different IP addresses, all to no avail. I left it alone for a few hours, and now I can log in OK. Weird. By the way, I was seeing the exact same thing as Gaddiel. It would take me to my profile page, but it would say my status was offline. Anyway, probably something to keep an eye on.

Must be a bug in this version of PHP-Nuke. I'll check their forums for fixes, etc.

This problem hasn't happened to me on this (www.arkgeo.us (http://www.arkgeo.us)) website. It happened to me once or twice on my work PC but not on my home PC (I keep logged in at work and home). I realized that the date on my computers clock got messed up and that was what was causing the problem.

If the date of your computer is too far ahead or behind the date of the cookie it won't log you in. My work computer is on a network that seems to automate the PC's time (every time you reboot it) so I didn't realize the problem.

It's happened to me a few times but since I've figured out the cause it hasn't happened again :)

I'd bet money that it's cookie and/or time related.

LD - try checking the Geommunity - there's a thread from when I had the problem. I didn't look for a Php-Nuke 6.9 fix because that's the same version everybody else is running and nobody else has had the problem - or at least nobody ever complained about it.

I've patched the site with the latest patches for PHP-Nuke 6.9. Let me know if this fixes your problems, or if you are still having difficulty.

We also had a domain related sign-up issue over the past 24 hours due to a problem with our domain registrar.

If you have any problems using
then try using

I forgot to put in my last post that I checked the time as well. The computer I was logging on with at work updates its time via an atomic clock server. So I know that one is dead on accurate. I checked the time and date on my home computer and it was within' a minute or two of being correct.

Anyway, I don't seem to be seeing the problem anymore.

I believe that login and account creation related problems have been fixed by the site move. If anyone is still having any problems, please let me know.

I tried choosing an avatar from the gallery, but there were none in there. :( I finally got mine to work by linking to an off-site picture.

05-27-2004, 03:18 PM
Avatars are definitely broken. Mine worked briefly then quit. It is a hot topic on the PHP-Nuke support forums, so I'm trying to figure out what to try next.

I've applied a couple of fixes, but they only helped so much...
Gallery avatars appear to work now if you select them from the Your Account page. It would also appear that avatars that are links to an image on another site may be working.

05-27-2004, 05:50 PM
Ok, I've applied some patches and avatars may work better now. They should also be easier to select from the gallery.

I also added a new theme called Chronicle. I invite every one to give it a try. Being a newer generation theme, it may work better.

I've also applied some other fixes and patches, so keep an eye out for any problems and let me know if you run across anything. As with any new site, it is an on going battle to shake out the initial bugs.

After getting informed by Ruffridr about this site two days ago, I registered (I thought). Never received confirmation by e-mail so today I re-registered (is there such a word?) and it immediately confirmed the registration. So I have no complaints.

So to make an initial comment...There are some really good geocachers in the area and state and I think it is a great idea to get them orgainized in some way. I've been to two events, one CITO in Barry Co., MO and the one at Clarksville (The First Ever Arkansas River Meet etc.). Both were terrific and lots of fun. If we don't do something like these, we are missing out on a lot of fun.

I agree we need to spread the word about the group first and build membership and then have some sort of event to get the group together and motivated. Maybe by then, we'll have some good ideas for activities.

We could start by having a Meeting Day once,a(week),month,ect.
Until we can get a centralized meeting area this forum seems like the most likely place to get things happening.

Thanks Rich for the compliment,yes it is as fun putting on events as going to them.
You are right we are and have been missing out on barrels of fun and adventure.

I think there are finally enough people to get it happening.

The site isn't recognizing me. When I type the login, it pulls up my personal Information, but still says Login or Register at the top left.

I'm not having any problem. Have you tried clearing your browser cache?

08-09-2004, 10:38 AM
You may have to set your browser to allow cookies from the site.
Some browsers will block the login cookie by default.

08-09-2004, 03:14 PM
I've reset the security to Accept all cookies, and still can't get on. I'll try again later. I'm on my work computer now.

Here's a possibility - it may seem stupid but it happened to me! (I guess that makes me stupid...).

Check the time on your computer. If your time gets messed up (set to far ahead or behind) the cookies will "expire" or be out of their range. I accidentally set my date a month behind and it wouldn't let me log in. Once I figured it out, I corrected the date and I had no problems.

That's a possibility... check it out.

The only stupid question is the one not asked.
