Having Difficulty Logging In to the Forum?

If you have not been able to log on to the forum try using Opera. I have not been able to log on for ages and I tried Chrome, Edge and Firefox. Today I tried Opera and was able to get in by unblocking content which had been blocked (see top right hand corner of the screen).

I think Lulu makes use of a redirect when connecting to the forum from the main website, and it is this that most browsers object to.


  • That's pretty much it. I go into a bit more detail in this comment - https://connect.lulu.com/en/discussion/comment/362216/#Comment_362216

    But more or less, the redirect is flagging a security issues (http vs. https) and the browsers are blocking the one script that logs users in.

    What a nightmare. I finally got in. Thank you, Oncewas. It should not be this difficult to get into the forums. I read that thread, Paul. Nothing worked. Chrome, Firefox, remove private browsing, clear cache, write to Lulu Chat. I promise you, no one will try this hard, this many times for weeks. Opera worked and still it was tricky.

  • Many many sites have been changing to https for a while now, because it's said to be far more secure. Many sites have also stopped using Flash, because it's said to be unsecure. None of this is nothing new.

    Look, this browser is weird and I am not used to it. It is not pleasant. I would very much like to use Firefox. Anyway, I did what I came to do: remove my signature. My website was hacked, again. I fixed it but who knows when it will happen again. I think it's time to blow up this whole forum and go back the previous one. It has been long and painful to use. Goodnight everyone. And Merry Christmas if I can't log in again.

  • Thanks for that. Have been trying to log in for the last 2 days. Downloaded Opera, disabled the privacy warning that comes up when you go to this site and have managed to log in.
