Problems logging in (said I needed to sign in) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was trying to log into the forums to post some other questions but it took forever.  Everytime I would try to enter, it would say only registered members could post and that I had to click a link to sign in.  In the upper right hand corner, it said "Sign out" so I was already signed in, and if I tried to click the link, it would just bring me to the same error message.  I tried manually logging out, then logging out of my Live account, but neither worked.  I ran the page in compatibility mode, closed IE8 completely and deleted the history/temp internet files/cookies, EVERYTHING, and nothing worked.

    Finally I got into it by opening the page using InPrivate browsing, but that was not fun.  How do I avoid that and just log in normally from now on?

  • Sounds like a cookie issue to me. I also remember that we have network issues 2 weeks ago that could have contributed to the problem. Can you delete your cookies and try again? Are you still having the problem?

    Thanks.
