View Full Version : Problem signing into pressf1.

17-02-2014, 11:41 AM
I'm running Win8.1.

Today, and only today, I keep getting a request to sign in or register even when I have done so. Why is that?

On the same PC I have a dual boot with WIN7 and I have no problem with that.

In Win 8.1 I have deleted my shortcut to pressf1 and then re- installed it but to no avail?

It hasn't retained your login settings, check the settings in the browser on that PC.
Or cookies are being cleared....

Doesn't seem to be the problem. When I get the error coming up, if I "refresh" everything comes back to normal. Strange to me!

Try accessing the forum with this link: http://pressf1.pcworld.co.nz

Sign in and tick "remember me". See if that helps.

Thank you Jen. I will monitor it as is seems to work other than having to refresh, I seem to land on the last time I entered pressf1. By refreshing I get to the current state of play.

My problem seems to be a refresh timing issue between Pressf1 and my Win 8.1.

I still have to refresh after I sign in but also once I get into say CHAT and then refresh again when I get onto the topic.

Times are shown as the previous day and do not update automatically. On the same PC I also dual boot with Win 7 (occasionally) and have absolutely no problems. Having to refresh so often although a chore is no great problem but I would like to resolve it.

It would seem that the refresh of pressf1 and my Win 8.1 are not in sync.

Seems I made a change in IE to not allow the IE to check new web page updates, I had set the browsing history to Never instead of every-time I visit the web page.
