Hi, I've had to create a second account to post this, but for some reason my old account no longer seems to work. It appears disconnected from half of the site. I can sign in no problem and access my profile, etc but when I try to go on the forums, it just reports that I need to login again. When I click login it goes straight to my profile as I am already logged in.

I've tried this in a few browsers and machines so it isn't a cookie or local issue. As you can see I've succeeded now with a brand new account, although it would be nice to get all my old posts back, etc

Any ideas?

ps. the username in question is jsl123

Cheers for your help, I' did log out and in again but had the same problem, although clearing all cookies has now fixed it. Is there an easy way to remove the "temporary" account or should I just leave it.

Thanks

We have "removed" the temporary account and associated your post and comment from that account to your "normal" account.

Thanks again.

Hi js,

The issue should be resolved now and you should be able to login to your account to post a forum topic.

We've been unable to log in for a couple of days too. It was a cookie issue, and I suspect it was fixed right as you were creating the new account. Can you test one more time? If you have any trouble I'll reopen the bug immediately.

Test of posting. We had a few people with posting issues a few days ago, probably because of the cookie issue. This is a test.
