FYI - I am having sign on issues

I am able to sign on at home, but not at work.   I do a lot of my posting from work, so that is why I have been quiet on the board this week.  I will do what I can.

I have already let our CM know.  I have Windows xp and IE8 at work.  Windows 7 and IE9 at home.  Guess it doesn't like the older IE.

Hi Serenity--

  FWIW-----

I'm now onto google chrome....but when I had IE.....I had HORRENDOUS time with this board....it always took F*O*R*E*V*E*R to open things, posting was awful, etc.  It had always been bad...then got REALLY bad....anyhow, one day I upgraded to the newer IE....................and ---WOW!----it was like night and day---

UNBELIEVABLY better........

The only annoying thing I've got going on these days......EVERY time I try to post----it tells me I need to log in---and I ALWAYS check the box that says "keep me signed in forever".........but it doesnt.  

AND...*after* I sign in with password---it flashes a screen telling me I'm not *authorized* to post........but then it lets me post.

The same thing has been happening to me.  It's funny though--I hadn't been having any problems at home using IE until the past week or so, then I got all those problems that you mentioned--so why would things get worse?  Using Google chrome is better.

Hi, everyone.  I know this whole thing is frustrating, and I'm sorry.  I wish I had more information to share.

If you're getting looped to log in each time you want to start a post, one thing that's worked for me (it's a workaround, not a fix) is before I start a new thread, I click the link at the bottom of the folder/section I want to post to that says "see all threads in this board."  From that page, I'm able to start a new thread.

Are you getting the sign-in loop when you're trying to start a new thread or when you're trying to reply?

Hello peeps!  I tried all the loopholes on IE8 and still couldn't get it to work.   I tried Chrome (again) and saw that one of you said even after the error message said you couldn't post, it actually let you.  So here I am!

iVillage is really odd over here on Chrome.  Not having any ads is great, but for example, I can't read the post I am replying to right now.  Seems a lot is missing.  But, I am also at work, which is Windows xp, so that may have something to do with it.

Wish I could upgrade to IE9 here at work, but can't with Windows xp.  Going to see if my luck holds!

Just wanted to bump this up again.......I'm still having the EXACT same issues I posted about here December 17!!

When I want to post, I have to log in (even though I checked "keep me logged in" the previous time I did it).....THEN it tells me I'm "not authorized" to post (pink box at top of screen that says that)-----

THEN....if I wait a minute, it brings up the posts again, only this time there is both the reply plus the Quick Reply option (normally as I view on chrome, it's only "reply" option available....when I click on that, it gets me to the log in screen, as described above....)

So...THEN...if I click on "reply" (like I did for this posting...) it will work.

(I BELIEVE when I try "quick reply" it DOESNT work.....anyhow, I havent tried that one since so much trouble in past)

Anyhow, this is my guess why we dont have many posting on here anymore------I think they probably BELIEVE the "not authorized", and leave.............

(using chrome)
