Don’t know if this has been covered before but when I log in, I always have to do it twice. Why ?
Once for the live tracking site, once for the discussions forum.
This happens to me too. It is browser dependant as to whether you have to log in twice or not. It is not related to the fact one is the discussion group or the flight aware website.
For IE 6.0, it works fine.
If I use Opera 9.0 or Netscape, I have to enter my name and password twice when I log in either the discussion or the flight aware website. I have cleared the cache and cookies and it doesn’t resolve the problem. No biggie, just enter it twice and off and running I go.
I use Opera, Firefox, and IE6. I haven’t had to sign in twice for any of them. In fact, I don’t even have to sign in because I have the password memorized by the browsers.
Have you asked your browser how many times it has to log in?
My Firefox log says once for each.
If you’re having to log in twice to both the tracking and discussions sites individually, I’d hazard a guess that you’ve got a cookies problem.
Definately not a cookie problem on my end, see my original post. I cleared both cookies and cache in both browsers.
What happens is I enter my name and password. After I push enter the screen comes up with the same fields to be entered, and when I enter it a second time it takes.
I use a program called CCleaner (Crap Cleaner) which does a nice job in cleanup of garbage files, temp files, cookies, history and the like.
While I have the browser to save user name and password, after running this program, I have to re-enter it. This is by choice as I could skip cookie files, but this reduces the likelyhood of me having cookie related problems since I do my housekeeping once a week.
I use IE6 and I have to log-in twice on both the tracker and the discussion board. I don’t think I should have to do this and think it’s a glitch that could do with sorting out .
I know this has been discussed in the past on another thread. The reason we login twice is because, for simplifacations sake, think of the tracking and forum two seperate webpages. For instance, when you shop on ebay, you login to ebay, then, if you use paypal, you login on paypal also. In a roundabout way, you could look at this the same way. Daniel and crew developed the tracking website. THe forum is developed by someone else, they just use their format, or something like that.
The fact you’ve cleared out some old cookies is no guarantee that your browser isn’t having a problem handling new ones.
Cookies from the site are changed and/or renewed every time you login.
