    As of July 11th, we installed a feature on the server that is meant to help increase page loading speed. Unfortunately, it might cause issues for some people who try to login to the site. If you try logging in and when you submit the page just reloads and you are still not logged in, try clearing your browser's cookies. For instructions on how to do that, you will need to know which browser you're using and do a Google search for that browser. For example, most iPhone users use Safari - just Google "clear cookies in Safari".

    Once you clear your cookies you should be able to login to the site. If you clear your cookies and still have an issue logging in - meaning, you try logging in and when the page reloads, you're still not logged in - chances are your cookies didn't completely clear. Below are links to pages that explain how to clear cookies/cache, and also links to cookie/cache clearing apps that can be installed if doing it manually doesn't fix it:

    It's worth noting that for Android mobile phones (at least mine anyways) I had to change the time frame selection to "All time" and then clear the site data and cache for DSMtuners to get it to finally start working again.

    The time frame selection can be seen in this photo at near top of the screen. By default it says "last hour"

    Thanks for sharing this, good to know.

    We're using what's called a Content Delivery Network (CDN) now to help deliver content to users faster depending on where they're at. It's a very common feature these days that I finally got around to setting up for the site. It should speed up page load time quite a bit. But it will also take a bit to work out some kinks.

    No problem! And that is interesting. I'm sure once the links are worked out it will be worth it!

    I was having some issues last night after I posted this getting "you must be logged in to do that" errors while I was signed in and then being logged out shortly after. Then it went back to the not logging in again. I cleared the cookies again and so far so good. Maybe it was just a fluke.

    I had an issue last night where anytime I load a page I was signed out seems to have stoped now though. I did nothing to fix it. Just thought I'd mention it.

    This was happening to me as well. I am also having trouble logging in again. Clearing the cache and site data was only a temporary fix. And it does not seem to work everytime. I currently can not get signed in from mobile at all. Switching to desktop site does not work either.

    I don't know for sure, but it could be the work being done on the server. We're still working through issues with RAM and MySQL crashes. It might be affecting the login issues as well. Hope to report good new soon on that being wrapped up for the time being.

    For what it's worth, I get nowhere clearing my cache and cookies but if I connect over https the site remembers me. Sadly many internal links are via http and those leave me logged out.

    I commented on the thread started a couple of days prior to this one about having problems with the "stay logged in" option. I expressed to the O.P. of the other thread how I was also experiencing the same problem as of late. A couple/few days later, the stay logged in function started working for me again without clearing my cookies.

    I have hardly ever had problems with this site on my desktop/laptop even during times many other users have troubles. Anyways, I'm wondering if the "stay logged in" function stopped working for me briefly on my laptop because I accessed the site (logged in) on my cellphone while at work, which I rarely rarely ever do. Is that a possibility?

    Quite possibly, yes - but we also started using something called a CDN (content delivery network) to help speed page loads, which can also affect cookies and logging in.

    I cleared the cache yet again and it seems to be working ATM. I'll let you know if it starts misbehaving again.

    When I logged in, minutes ago, I was immediately sent to this address.

    Was this on a phone? I know that I've experienced this on some sites. Try clearing cookies for the site completely in the browser, and if that doesn't work, using a cache cleaning app.

    This is on my phone. It's a moto G series running Android. I cleared cookies and the behavior did not repeat.

    Just recently have been having this issue, not sure what changed since the implementation.

    Usually using my phone (Google pixel 2 xl) with chrome, and it just started logging me out mid post. Had to log back in twice earlier today while trying to post a 1 paragraph reply, then just now it kicked me out after hitting "post reply".

    Of smaller note, occasionally when inserting new words into sentences or fixing errors, cursor will move, causing words to be auto corrected or completely deleted. May be a phone issue though.
