I was trying to register for the forum yesterday, obviously I succeeded, but not without a puzzling error which slowed me down.

I was successful when I registered using a different browser program (Vivaldi) than the one I was currently using (Chrome) with a bunch of tabs showing different forum pages. Clearing cookies and restarting the browser might also work. I didn't try that myself.

The first two fields (name and email) showed a message "The field xxxxxxxxxxx was not recognised", and if I continued anyway and clicked submit, the page returned a list of several more errors which I can't remember. I saved a screenshot of the initial errors but I can't find the upload button to display it. A bit strange, I was able to do that yesterday in a different post.

I tried to search the forum for registration instructions but didn't find anything specific about the error, hence this post, in case other prospective members encounter a similar issue.

I also found this link which might be relevant to forum admin ...

The field '53dac53bcf058071683f83b2e5fe40c7' was not recognised.

I just registered with two different browsers, Chrome and Safari. No problem with either.

Also, we are not running the add-on which is mentioned in the link you posted.

Not sure what the glitch was, but we have a few dozen people register each day, this is the first I've heard of any issue.

Ok thanks. I don't know what that add-on is anyway, the link was just a result that came up when I was searching for how to log in.

Maybe it was related to something else I just discovered ...

For the past week or so I've been unable to log in. I'd restart browser, computer, and yet whenever I tried to login, I'd fail. There would be no error message, just the page I was on would reload. Until ...

... today I thought I'll try changing http to https. That did the trick. Obviously I'm logged in now but only if I stay on the https version of forum pages. Perhaps previous problem was related to something like that.


By the way, when viewing explorerforum pages in Chrome I see a message that says "This page is trying to load scripts from unauthenticated sources." with an option to "Load unsafe scripts" (I didn't click that), and a reference to this link ...

Manage warnings about unsafe sites - Computer - Google Chrome Help

I have several dozen tabs open for different websites but only see the message for explorerforum pages.

The message doesn't appear with http, only https. Forum pages display ok
