Can't edit profile... can't edit publications... can't do a damn thing! RRS feed

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your information. You could find the "edit" button on the up right corner of your profile page and then you can edit your basic information and publications after logging in. If you still couldn't edit your page, please offer us your homepage, publication list or bibtex and we will help you do that. We appreciate your continuous support and feedback.

  • Thanx for responding... I thought it might be evident that I've been clicking the "edit" button in the upper right corner of my profile page but I keep getting kicked back to the "Sign In with Live ID" web page with these additional icons: 1) Edit Author, 2) Edit Publication, 3) Add PDF, 4) Edit CFP, etc.

    For whatever reason, I am stuck in this "circular" login mode! I've cleared the academic.research.microsoft.com cookies (then cleared the browser history) but apparently to no avail. What would be preventing me from being able to login successfully?

    UPDATE: I created another Live ID... tried logging in with that one... same result as above. It's like the Live ID is not communicating with journalogy.com (academic.research.microsoft.com).

  • Appreciate someone following up... using MS Windows XP Professional, Version 2002, Service Pack 3 and MS IE Version 8.0.6001.18702.

    Very surprised that I'm using a MS OS and MS browser... and can't access a MS website... what's next?

  • Certainly there are problems using Google Chrome.

    Microsoft: Could it be fixed so editing works on all major browsers (IE, Firofox, Chrome, Safari, etc.)?

    1. Click sign in buttong.

    2. Sign in with your windows live account

    3. it should redirect you to the editing page now. if not, please tell me which page you are redirected, and try to click the "edit" button on author page again.
