Cant log in from my phone?

Postby spanish_lad » Mon Jul 30, 2018 2:16 pm

Hi everyone, a small issue has arisen, for some reason I can no longer log into the forum on my android phone?

Ive cleared all the cookies / saved data etc. but it still doesnt? I even got a new password sent to me incase it was that? obviously not, as im logged in now..

anyone had this before or got any ideas ?

cheers

You are logging in as spanish_lad and not spanish-lad as a username?
Are you using chrome on your phone? It could be auto completing using a different password.
Is there more than one user in your house for the forum?
What is the response you are getting? Does it tell you your password is incorrect?
Just a few ideas to start with. I expect one of the real gurus will be along shortly...

Hi spanish_lad,
To login from Android v7.0 using default Chrome Browser check the"Remember me" box

I always check the Remember me box, but if I change & use a different machine, I will have to log in again.

hi guys, thanks for the ideas.

When i log in online i click on "log in", it comes up with the page where you enter your name and password, and it works fine - the menu page loads with Spanish_lad at the top right like always

when i try on my phone i go to the log in page, fill in name and password, then click log in, and it just reloads to page. and it still says "log in" at the top right instead of changing to "Spanish_lad".

This is something that has only happened recently, maybe a few weeks ago? I havent been here much recently, so i thought it was strange .- i used to log in on my phone all the time ?

Hi,
"This is something that has only happened recently, maybe a few weeks ago?"..........correct
Just click the Remember me box on the login page.
