I’m happy to report that after following those steps, I’m now permanantly logged in. Here’s what I did.

ThinMick - 0

So, basically, two tabs:
- Open a quick-reply to any thread in the first one. It doesn’t matter if you type anything, because the content will never be submitted.
- Tab two, just click ‘Log Out’.
- Go back to tab one. Click ‘Submit’ on your reply.
- Ta-da! There it is.


I followed those steps, then rebooted my pc and I’m still logged in. First time since the new site started. Yay!!

Doesn’t seem to work at all for me - the page that pops-up refuses to recognise my password (and yes, I entered it multiple times to be sure I hadn’t mis-typed).

You are using exactly the same login as you would when using the store login, ie email address as user name, and store password.

I know you may not use FF, but in Firefox I have my prefrences set up to automatically clear my cache on closing down the PC.  Once in a blue moon, if the browser crashes for some strange reson it also clears other things, like once it crashed and cleared everything, including all my cookies (grrrrrrrr, I wanted some of those cookies) and also “Active Logons”  I think it was that last one that started me having the LOLI dance, so check for settings like that.

Cookie Monster is a Vegan and only eats cookies for desert now. My little bugger seems to be after them whenever it can nab them. Probably my AV settings, but I thought I had it set to leave them alone.

Yes. It works on the screen you get to via “Log In”, not on the other one. This is something that’s been true ever since the new store went live.

Sorry, If you try any other login on the Screen you get via the method described here, you won’t get to login at all.  THere is only one login username and password , and it is the Email address you use to login with and that password.

When I followed the steps outlined above, I got a login with my user name and password. I changed the username to my e-mail addy, and it worked. Several days later, and I’m still logged in, so it’s worth persevering with because it does work.

Yes, and that’s the only login I have ever attempted to use, email+password works via the login screen, does not work via the http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/#error login screen.

Doesn’t work for me either - I’ve seen that login page many times but it will never accept my login, I just get this page:

Glad I could help. I found it one way, Mick found it a much simpler way. All we need now is for DAZ 3D to work out how to get this login screen back so it associates with the forum login, instead of having to fumble around finding it. The convo I linked to has been flagged up.

Well ... it’s probably worth pointing out that the particular login screen in question is NOT secure. Because it’s bouncing you from a forum post, rather than the actual logon prompt, it’s an http:// rather than an https:// page. (The forum itself is not secure, only the logon is.) Since the same login is used for both the forum and the store, using that screen at all may not be a great idea.

For what it’s worth, on my other computer, I use Chrome rather than Opera or Firefox to access the site, and it never EVER logs me out of the forum on that workstation. The store, yes; for some reason, Chrome can and does treat the store and forum differently.

Just for the hell of it, I looked at the cookies inside the browser I use at home (Opera). As far as I can tell, the store cookie seems to be set to last about an hour (I think). Interestingly enough, there actually are separate cookies set for the forum. And they’re kind of a mess. There are a few different ones, and I’m not entirely sure what I’m looking at. One appears to be set to expire on Christmas Day, 2013. Another one was set to expire five minutes before I actually logged in. They’re just ... odd.

It has always been the case that the forum is held on the non secure server and the store on the secure side of the site, Does rather stand to reason that is the way it would work.
