Remember back a bit when we got the prompt to change our passwords? Well since, my account has been messed up. lol. Like, at home it's fine because I stay logged-in forever. But at work, it's a different story. I try my new password and get an error, try the old one get an error, try the new one get an error, and after trying both a few times it works. The odd thing is once I get logged-in there is still an error message displayed, but clearly I am logged-in because I see my account name & tool bar thing on the right. I recently changed my password and it seems to be a little better, but I still get error messages. If you're seeing lots of error messages it's probably me. I work at a very large hospital and all different IP's.


- Just my two cents.
I just fixed the error message being displayed... I tried to hire 4 other experienced programmers on separate occasions, and they won't get the forum and social network on a single login. I knew I had issues with it, but I was sure that someone more experienced that me would have a solution. Still searching, there is somebody out there! :shocked:

On the other hand, this does seem like a limited issue. I cannot replicate the problem myself, but I have had several members report this issue. However, I want ALL members to not have the inconvenience of this problem. I will get this fixed...

Thanks for the input. I am working with a programmer now to get this problem solved once and for all!

I have thought about a mobile option with the forum, but not with the rest of the site. This may be in the works in due time.

Mike, you ever thought about an iOS app (iPhone, iPad, iPod) or mobile site?

I was curious how many people have had problems logging into the forum after being logged into the Finance Network? I am currently working on a fix for this, and am hiring a programmer experienced with this technology. The only way to fix this as I understand is to reset your password and log back in again.

Basically, when you log-in to the Finance Network, a cookie is placed to also log you in the forum. My goal is to only have 1 cookie, and have the forum look at that one, not the 2nd it is supposed to create. Doing this will eliminate the issue.

I will provide updates here.

Many thanks!
