When logging in on the main site (to post comments) I have been getting:

Access denied.

You are not authorized to access this page.


Any idea what gives?

Thanks.

The main page won't let me log in at all.

I don't get an access denied message though.

Interesting. I guess it's busticated.

But I was getting the same thing last time I attempted to login a couple weeks ago, so I wasn't sure if it was my account or the site.

It's the site.

It is always the site.

I guess the 'web staff' have other problems to take care of ... like finishing high school.

I get "You are not authorized to access this page. " now. But it does let me login now. I haven't tried commenting though.

I'm not sure it is the same problem, but for me login problems on the main MPC web page account quit working when you revamped the site.

I not, by any means a programmer, so I have no idea what changed. All I know is that I have not been able to log in using my password manager (RoboForm) since the changes. I must always manually log in each and every time.

This link was my original post regarding log in problems.

Note that the forum logins work fine. It's just the main site since you went to that little screen within a screen thing.

Have you tried deleting the form information in RoboForm and resubmitting?

By the way, we are deploying a minor upgrade to the website tonight, which should fix some bugs--hopefully including this one.

I still can't login to comment or correspond on articles.

Was I banned or something? Have no idea why I would be, but I still get unauthorized.

It's not just you, I can't even log in to comment.

Try logging in through this link: http://www.maximumpc.com/user

I got logged in through that link, but still can't comment (I was able to post to Facebook after clicking the above link again though).

The other URL I noticed MPC uses is http://www.maximumpc.com/user/login but I cannot login at all through this link.

I've tried with Firefox 3.6.17 and 4, as well as IE 8. No dice.
