    I use an IPad and I need to enter my user name and password three times before it will log me in. Been like this for monthes and it's every time any suggestions.

    Sorry. I don't use any of that i-nonsense. All my WTF stuff is done with my laptop, with no problems.
    Have you posted in the Site Issues and Web Help forum yet? Have any of your security settings been altered by accident?

    Are you using a password keeper or are you copy/pasting your password?

    Are you waiting for the site to fully load before logging in? Try waiting 15 seconds.

    Any luck? How was the login? Are you using the HTTPS version of the site or did you update your bookmarks to HTTPS?

    What do you mean are you using the HTTPS version? I am trying to log on through Google Chrome as I have for quite some time. The site will not keep me logged in even when I check the remember me box and I am still having trouble with a few pictures.

    I waited 30 seconds and it still takes me three times to log in on my Ipad, it starts to log me on then freezes (picture included) then I tried logging in on my android phone and one try and I am in. Then I logged on with my windows 7 laptop with chrome and firefox by using a search engine to get to WTF instead of a bookmark and it still takes three times to log on. I use to have a problem of being kicked off over and over and over but it stopped doing that. can you please explain your statement about HTTPS or HTTPS. When it does finaly log me in it will show the screen saying I have used an invalid username or password, but my username apears at the top of the screen showing I am logged in. Thank you for your help.

    Same here. The site will not keep me logged in even when I check the remember me box.

    At the address bar in your browser, it needs to start with HTTPS, and not HTTP. You will need to ensure you are on that URL. If you're typing in the URL and it's using history to auto fill the URL fully, you need to change it to HTTPS. If you are using bookmarks, update them to the same.

    My email showed your link as HTTP, but in your post its showing as HTTPS so I am unsure. Check the URL first to ensure it comes up as https://www.watchtalkforums.info

    You may also need to clear cache and cookies.

    @Catman8 - Your image is showing as a link. If you are going to embed an image into a post, you need to click Go Advanced, and use the insert image icon or attachment manager there. The one in quick reply will not show the image correctly.
