Repeated Logins Required???

So...while trying to post comments on other peoples' posts in the All Media Art Events Forum, I had to repeatedly log in to do so. It seems like nearly every time I hit "Post Reply" I was popped to a screen showing I was a guest and needed to log in! Bizarro, never saw that before. And it also happened the first time I tried to create this thread!

Re: Repeated Logins Required???

I just had that problem myself with my Chrome browser. I was OK using EDGE but using Chrome wetcanvas would say thanks for logging in Yorky and then said I was a guest!

I went to Settings/advanced then Privacy then Cookies and searched for my wetcanvas.com cookies and deleted them. Next time I logged in it created a new cookie and remembered me. My cookies had become corrupted and wetcanvas didn't recognise them.

Settings is accessed via the three dots top right of your Chrome browser?

I have a similar problem: I can post some replies without problems, but sooner or later, when I post, I get a weird message along the lines of "thread not specified" or something. And my post then disappears without a trace. It's been like this for years now; I have learned to simply make a copy of everything I post before I post it.

Since some years ago, I am suddenly required to go through a CAPTCHA before I'm allowed in too. Not the end of the world, perhaps, except that every so often, the CAPTCHA malfunctions completely, and I am not allowed in.

WC's software has all manner of weird issues and I don't think it's likely that they'll ever be sorted out.

Then try deleting any wetcanvas cookies as I described above. Once logged in I don't log out.

Thanks for the response Doug! I use Chrome as well. I haven't had the problem again, but if I do I will try your suggestions.

I am also logged in permanently. Not too sure what my password even is! But I am nevertheless required to do a CAPTCHA every time. I'll have to see whether I can find the WC cookies...

EDIT: No luck. I can't find what you describe above. There is a setting to clear ALL cookies, but I don't want to do that, because then I have to sign back in to every single thing I use online.

Re: Repeated Logins Required???

I also got this problem
It works well with the PC, but when I read WC from my smartphone (Android, the browser is Google Chrome) it doesn't let me log in. It "remembers" me (because of the syncronisation the login and password are in its memory) but when I try to log in, Captcha pops up and then brings me back to the home page. I did try deleting cookies. Twice. Didn't work

So frustrating that I only can post comments from my PC! Any solution known?

I haven't come across that problem. It doesn't seem to be reading your cookie.

If you click the three dots top right of the browser and go to settings, you can allow or block cookies, or clear them.

In settings, if you click the question mark top right you can search for help on cookies.
