Just reporting that I've been by to visit a couple of times today, and I haven't had to log in at all!  Progress!

Thanks again MB for all your hard work!

Interesting because I've still been having to log in. But then I don't think I've been checking the stay logged in box. I'll try that next time...

I have to re-log in each time, but what's odd is that I don't have to type a name and password; I just click the Login button.

Regarding log-in, for me - for now - I have to click on the www.dsboards.com with all those numbers and letters afterwards (it was just by luck I found it); clicking on just www.dsboards.com only takes one to the error message.  After clicking on the www.with-all-the-numbers-and-letters, I get the message with the link to this site.  I click on that.  I get this site; it wants me to log in.  And when I click on log in - voila! - I'm logged in.

Yesterday I had what Midnite and Gerard reported, with clicking "login" and then I was in.  Today I came right in, already logged in, and had forgotten all about that until reading these.

I'm in the middle of restoring our almost 75000 attachments so that we can get back to the Games boards. Still more than 26000 to go, so it will be a few hours before it's done...

I had the same experience getting on the Board today that Midnite reported.  It asked me to log in but because Chrome has saved the log-in and password, I just clicked "log in" and immediately I was taken to the refreshed page.

As Grayson was wont to say, "Who can figure anything?"

Apparently I need to restore all the posts before the attachments feature will work properly. So, I'll attempt to do that tonight...

For some reason, as others have reported, just clicking the login button get me in - but without doing that the forum still thinks I'm logged out...

After I completely logged in, I saved the board to "favorite places" or whatever on Firefox.  Now when I click on it, there I am, fully logged in.

I'm wondering if I automatically clicked login the other day and forgot it, because I've had to click it since then.

After Irma, I was in the dark figuratively and literally whatever was going on here. It was working fine til we lost power Sunday evening (and thanks again MB for your concern about us down here), then when we got power back up Tuesday, there was a new looking sign in page. Wouldn't let me log in, so I didn't know...thought maybe you changed providers and we all had to reregister as a formality. I did, got a e-mail saying registration pending moderator approval- same as years ago - then everything was fatal error messages after that. So, like the others, grateful you got things back up and running and kept backups. Guess you can disregard my 2nd registration - I used the same handle. And with that new link you provided that I have bookmarked, have logged in fine so far.
