When i go to log in at the top of the Forums page i enter my user name and password then another page opens with a captcha..and i have to enter both username and password again plus the captcha. Is there a way for me to go straight to the captcha page instead of having to input my details twice.
Thanks

I don't know. I'll ask Dex. There have been several other reports of login weirdness.

I have something similar happening. I usually have the ' RemeberMe' option checked and am automatically logged in when I click on the sites bookmark, but a couple of weeks ago I had to log in manually and had to log in a couple of times as the 'Captcha' did not appear on the first login page. It has happened about once a week since.

I though it might have been because you had increased the security on the site because of one of the nbz indexers getting taken down by hackers for a few days.

I'm usuing Firefox as my browser.

I put the forums behind a load balancer a couple of weeks ago due to some people having issues with the SSL cert. This was a side effect. I'll tweak the LB settings and see if I can resolve this.

Something definatley strange going on...It looks like i am being logged out automatically i went to post in the General forum and hit the submit button and got told i had to login to be able to post (i was already logged in) so i logged in again and was taken back to the post i had typed but it was blank.
So i re-typed the post and hit Submit and the same thing happened.

Is the behavior different if you use https vs http?

Not sure what to say. It works for Quade and me and I'm not hearing alot of other complaints. What browser are you using? I'm using Chrome without issues.
