anyone else having to keep logging in?

I keep having to login every time I visit the site

I've deleted my cookies and Internet cache

I am using chrome

sometimes it will say I am logged in on the green bar at the top but when I tried to post it would say I have to log in

anyone else having similar problems?

At last I've managed to get in, it's taken me 3 days now, don't know how long it's gonna take to get used to the new format, I liked the simplicity of the old site, we could do without complications, I also liked being prompted by emails, lazy I know, maybe I'll get used to it, if not I won't be on here as much, I'm just afraid I'll miss something!

I tend to just click on the home button on the blue bar (the picture of the little house)

and look at recent activity, I do find the layout is a bit busy which I do find difficult

I know we have a button for questions and posts but for some reason I actually struggle with that

I guess we will get used to it over time

and like you I feel that I will miss some posts or questions

in your profile you can choose when to receive e-mails

such as someone said you a message or somebody replies etc.. So it's a bit better with this update as you can customise your e-mails better

I do hope no one leaves because of this as we have a good community here

I for one am just going to find my way of adjusting to it

Hi Janet, I am finding the new format really confusing and frustrating, emails I'm getting from Headway now are taking me to a lot of old posts made several months before including this one of yours, do you have that problem also? Shirley x

I occasionally have that problem but mostly it's ok, I find they are suggesting old posts for us to read, presumably as a means of expanding our use of the site and I must admit I've found interesting posts I've missed before but some are very old but there's no reason we can't reply or pick up on them, I know I don't mind it's just s bit frustrating. But I think it's just the way they want to run the site, so don't be too concerned I don't think there's a problem with you in particular.

Ok? Janet xxxx

Its driving me crazy..I have it ticked to keep me logged in but it doesn't work. I really hate the changes...if i can't get used to them soon I will just step away. Right now I just do not have the brain power or energy to waste on figuring this stuff out

I decided to just give it a miss for a couple of days then check again. So it's 1am Sunday & I'm a little more rational now but, yes, the logging in is still a nuisance and it still won't accept my email address.

Some of the main issues for brain injured folk is difficulty accepting change, inability to concentrate, short-term memory problems and a need for continuity/stability......so this is all rather a contradiction......when the original site was so functional and user friendly.

Hi Biker, its not just the signing in - its everything - your post has just shown up in inbox tonight 25 Jan but says it was posted 7 months ago. No wonder we all feel we are going mad as if our BI's aren't enough - hope you are really back and I'm not just answering an old post! so Welcome back.....I've just spent ages trying to sort out several of my regular websites I go to from emails and having same problem.

Don't know if its googlechrome or the websites, but I do know that I've now allowed cookies, pop-up still blocked and websites seem to be working better now. I now find it helps to read the links that explain things in Chrome settings, which is why I now allow cookies.

Also finding Lastpass good as it puts my passwords in for me, although I am now writing down new ones as well!

Sorry Shirley.........these are old posts & biker hasn't been around for quite some time. It's a bit confusing when old posts appear..........you don't necessarily notice the date. A few others have made the same mistake & I nearly have a couple of times !

thanks Cat, with internet and computer problems over recent month at old home and current one I know I missed a lot of things - ending up with french keyboard didn't help - just added to confusion soprobably why my typing/spelling went weird also. xxx

Hi! I haven't had a problem with having to keep logging in but I have had a problem with google chrome. A message kept popping up saying 'I did not have permission to access.....' I've uninstalled chrome and am just using google.

Sorry folks,

Just realised I've responded to 'old' posts. x
