I keep finding I'm not logged in!

  1. What on earth have I done to cause this to happen?
    I go to comment on someone else's blog, and find I have to sign in as a WordPress person.
    Then when I return to my own blog, lo and behold! - I'm bloody not logged in AGAIN.
    This has been going on all day. I grow restive, to put it mildly.
    Any clues, please?

    The blog I need help with is margaretrosestringer.com.

  2. What blog are you trying to comment on? What browser and version are you using?

  3. What do you mean, what blog?
    I had to bloody LOG IN AGAIN to reply to you. This is getting really, really boring.
    It says clearly what my blog is. I don't understand what's going on.
    I use Chrome. Occasionally Firefox, if I need to adjust CSS; but nearly always Chrome.
    I've never had this problem until today!!!

  5. Oh, what blog am I trying to comment on? - sorry.
    Any. No idea. Don't remember. Blogs I've commented on previously, without trouble.

  6. Do you have the same problem with Firefox? Is your browser set to accept cookies?

  7. Yup. Exactly the same. And both are set to accept 'em.
    However! - when in doubt, something I always try is ... rebooting my modem.
    Which I have now done, and have not had the problem in the short time since doing so.
    Does that make any sense at all?
    :-}

  8. As much as anything.

  9. I lied. The problem hasn't gone.
    My black WordPress bar is showing, once again, nothing except my weeny gravatar and an initial. This is what was happening before.

  10. And again I ask are both your browsers set to allow cookies? NOTE: I am not asking if, some time in the past, they were. I am telling you to check both of them now. Sometimes, particularly with upgrades, that changes.

  11. FOR CRYING OUT LOUD! - it's logging in HERE that's starting it all off again!
    I had to log in to get back to my own blog, and everything was fine: then when I worked my way back here, I was suddenly logged out again!!!

  12. Chrome shows wordpress.com as having 29 cookies and local storage, whatever the devil that means.

  13. Yep, that's a fact: every time I track my way to the form, my wordpress bar on the top suddenly loses everything except my gravatar.
    WILL A STAFF MEMBER PLEASE TELL ME HOW THIS CAN BE FIXED????

  14. (No offence, yachtie ...)

  15. If you'd like to wait for a staff member, be my guest.

  16. They're going to have to get into the innards, after all.
    But I shoulda said that first.
    Sorry for my bad manners.
    Now I must go and log back in again.
    :-|

  17. Oh, come on, team! - this isn't an amusing thing that's going on.
    This-morning I get up, check my Inbox, attempt to comment on a new post and sure enough, I have to log in again.
    The short cut to my own site on my Chrome menu bar shows me I'm not logged ig.
    WILL SOMEONE PLEASE LOOK INTO THIS FOR ME?
    What do I have to do to get someone to help me?

  18. If you hadn't started shouting at me, I'd have worked it through with you. As I'm a volunteer, however, I get to pick and choose which threads I work on.

  19. Yachtie, you are simply too sensitive. I wasn't shouting at YOU: I was shouting for someone who's able to get into my site - i.e., anyone on the staff.
    Anyway, I apologised for my bad manners: what else do you want?!
    And now, thanks to Graham, it turns out that there are actually server problems [or whatever]: me alone it ain't.
    Heaven only knows how long this will go on for: and I am deeply disappointed that no WordPress person has made a statement.

  20. I don't care how many times you apologize. I don't care how poor your aim. I'm not a yachtie. I have to wade through all your freak-outs in order to get to the technical issue. In this case, there's been a sticky post at the very top of the forum since before you posted, talking about this specific issue. And many, many other threads in the forum. Look at the forum when you have a problem and you will often see the problem, the solution, and the staff responses.

  21. Looks like I'll have to struggle through without you, then. Gosh: I wonder if I'll be able to ...?
    As for your peremptory advice: from now on, this is what I'll do.
    As it hadn't occurred to me that my problem was anyone else's, all I'd done was to search on "being logged out", which got me no result. Didn't occur to look for a sticky: thought it was my problem, as I said.

  22. If you are located in the UK, regardless of the ISP you contract with to serve you, this is the thread to follow http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/talk-talk-no-data-received-error

    If your are not in the UK then you can use this contact form link to contact Staff http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/

  23. Thanks, timethief!

  24. You're welcome.

  25. @margaret, using ALL CAPS is the Internet equivalent of shouting, but somehow I think you already know this. :)

    When there are system issues, there is also usually a sticky post at the top of these forums, like this http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/dashboard-errors-related-to-talktalk-isp-issue?replies=1

    Please look first before posting.

  26. Most kind. However, as already explained, I had no idea that what I was experiencing was a system issue.
