I can access this forum, but whenever I attempt to visit either the Fashion forum, or the Trad forum, it shows me not logged in. And when I attempt to log in, I get a message saying "security error" and instructions to use the browser to go pack to the previous page, but that still leaves me not logged in.

Any help appreciated.

Can you please post a screenshot next time? I'm currently not experiencing any issues

For any who may also be having this problem; after I posted on the above problem, the sign-in button had vanished from the top of the forum page, and I was therefore unable to sign-in. I used the contact button at the top of the page to contact the admins, and Mike was kind enough to e-mail a link to me for the sign in page. I've copied it, and will paste it below for anyone else who might also be having this problem.

Sorry, don't know how to post a screenshot.

It was working again yesterday, but now having log in problems, as explained in post below.
If you're using a PC just press the PrtScr button on your keyboard (that will take a screenshot).
After then, click on the editor, right click and click on Paste :)

Thanks! 👍

Will give it a try next time I encounter it.

A thought occurred to me yesterday; I wonder if the wide spread and power outages/disruptions here on the East Coast may have affected the Internet?

Problem occurring again sporadically.

My PC is about 10 years old, never used the printer screen button. The only keyboard button similar to that in your suggestion is labeled,, PrtScrnSysRq, but depressing it does not open a dialog box.

I often will open multiple windows on AAAC when viewing multiple forums, and do so by right clicking. When it logged my out again, I believe that is what I did. I've also noticed that when I am able to post successfully, it will sometimes take a minute for the post to appear in the forum. When I've been locked out while trying to post this is message I'm getting from the site -

"Oops! We ran into some problems.
Security error occurred. Please press back, refresh the page, and try again."

But doing so doesn't rectify the problem.

Yes, that's the button.
When you hit the print screen key on the keyboard it captures an image of what is on the screen and puts it on the clipboard so you won't see any popup or dialog box but the image will be on your clipboard.

By making right click on the editor and selecting Paste, it will paste the image that is on the clipboard.

Let me know if that happens again so we can troubleshoot

Thanks, but I'm sorry I don't know what you mean by "the editor." It's a PC using Google Chrome as a browser and Windows 10 as an operating system.

Still same session, screen capture below on Fashion forum now shows I am logged in there, though I've performed no additional log in functions. Tried deleting cookies as suggested via Ctrl-F5. Seemed to make no difference.

Will deleting cookies affect any other applications?
