Login On Email Notifications

Post by dave9 » Fri Aug 21, 2020 4:18 pm

Today I received an email notification about a new reply in a topic.

It gave a link to see the new post.

Clicking it, I can't see the new post, instead getting stopped/redirected to a login page.

Please fix this. I do not want to have to go look up my login and enter it just to see a post on the site, when I didn't even end up posting anything as a reply.

Also why is there not a subforum for site bugs/issues?

I may not be back to read any replies if I'm going to have to keep looking up my login and doing that every time I get a reply email notification, as stated above.

Thanks.

When you clicked the notification link, were you actually logged in here?
If so, then maybe you had been logged in before, & it just hadn't timed out yet?

Otherwise, seeing a reply (in the forums) has nothing to do with whether you're logged in or not.
(If it was a reply to a PM, that would be different, because you would have to be logged in to see that.)
