I wish you were asking something wood related and I might be able to give you some advice
In this case I can only tell you that if “Premium” shows up in the upper right corner you’re in. Username and password can differ from forum area I think. I can’t remember how those are to be set.
Ahh. That would explain a few things (if there are 2 different logins).
If I try to log into the home page, I can’t log in.
If I go to the forums, then log in, I can log in (just tested this from a fresh computer).
I am starting to doubt that I have ever successfully logged in from the home page since the new website was implemented. I probably clicked into forums and then logged in from there. I just assumed that “logged in” was “logged in” period.
So, I can apparently get to all of the “premium” forum stuff, but not the other premium stuff.
OK. I will now go to the home page and click “create a new account.” I will use my existing user name and password.
PS: I have read the “Arriving users - How to Log In” guidance that you posted above, both now, and previously. I would suggest editing that a little bit to make it more clear that there are two different logins, and two different processes for getting logged in.
PPS: I hope that the approval process does not involve sending an email to my original email address. That is one of the factors that has given me a hard time. That is an address that I can only see from work. And it is behind a firewall, so I can’t click on any confirmation links or anything that.
Chris - As a follow-up, I clicked the “sign-up” link from the home page, and used my existing user name and password. However, I put in my yahoo email address instead of my original address. That way, I can receive notifications from you when I am at home.
However, my original email address may still be associated with the forum login. It is fine with me if you want to change both of them to my yahoo address so that they will be the same. Or, if that is something I can do, then I will do it.
