Can't Log onto Forums


Recommended Posts

Ok am posting this for another cacher who is unable to log onto the forums.


He sent me this-



I'm a premium member, I log in, click forums...

It asks me to Log In or Register..

If I log in with my username / pw, it says its incorrect..

If I click register, it tries to go to another page and brings me back

to the home page



Here is his profile page http://www.geocaching.com/profile/?guid=64...e5-9edf31708f8a


could some one help him to gain access to the forums.

Don't know if he's got the problem resolved yet, but I was having the same issue. I contacted the site support & they said:


"Hi, I am going to bet that you have a non-alpha numeric character in your password. One of these, !@#$%^&*()_-=+. The forum software does not work with these characters. If you change your password it should work fine".


I did have a non-alpha numeric character in my PW. I changed it & it worked fine. Why they don't tell you this or have a message about this when your login fails is totally beyond me, but that's probably the issue.
