Hello, Its Josh the webmaster of LiberalArtists.com! We have recently upgraded to new software and received 3 e-mails from 3 different users saying that cannot post comments on the site. The comments section of course, is where you the visitor are allowed to talk about articles you are interested in with other web surfers.
But the recent e-mails have me wondering if any of the other 200+ members we have are experiencing similar difficulties?
So I created this poll which will allow people who cannot post comments to vote NO and signal to me that they are unable to comment so I can further investigate the problem. Now there are a few things you have to do in order to post a comment. The first of which is sign up for our site, its free all you have to do is click the link to your left and fill out a quick form. We do not allow guest users to post comments so you will have to register and then log in by entering your username and password (also to your the left).
If you have registered and you are having problems posting comments despite the fact that you are signed in, or if you continue to be asked to sign in over and over again there are a few steps you can take to try and solve this problem although it doesn't always work.
1) Clicking the box that says "Remember me" before logging in usually solves this problem. Our site looks for a "cookie" on your computer every time you wish to make changes or post comments. If you have not checked the "remember me" box, or if your computer is setup to delete cookies our site will be unable to find your password and will thus ask you to login manually each time. It does this to make sure you are who you say you are!
If that doesn't help...
2) Check your browser settings to make sure you have cookies enabled. If you need help doing this feel free to e-mail me personally at LiberalArtists@LiberalArtists.com I will walk you through the process, its actually fairly simple.
3) Delete your cookies and re-login. Sometimes a cookie will become "broken" this can happen when your web browser crashes or you are suddenly kicked offline. When this happens the cookie file is incomplete but since it exists the site attempts to read it and fails causing you to see the login screen over and over again. By deleting your LiberalArtists.com cookie and re-logging in your computer will replace it with a working copy.
If anyone has any problems or questions feel free to e-mail me at the address above. Also if you do NOT have any problems leaving comments feel free to leave one below and let me know what ya think of the site!
