Can't login so can't enter my username. Catch 22?

But you could type your username here and tell me what device you were using... !PUZZLED!

You just want everything on a plate...

Sorry I wasn't expecting my post to work without a username. I'd tried it with one (although not logged in) and it didn't work.

I'm bod and your new login screen seems to work OK with Win7/IE11 but the new stuff no longer works with IE9. I realise that is no longer supported by MS and if you don't want to support old browser versions you could maybe code a version check into your login screen like many apps do nowadays?

OK thanks again for letting me know. Weird that it's working now for Bryans fan.
To prevent account hijacking when members log in from public computers, etc., I've reinstated a "Remember me" function, rather than making that behaviour the default.

There are version checks coded into the site, with different styling served as required. Trouble is, I make changes sometimes without testing on those old browsers.

So, currently Todd, Bod and Mei Mei (soon to be a new kid's TV hit :? ) still can't log in. Is IE9 the common denominator?
I need to hear from Mei Mei, oldschool, and anyone else who can't log in, what operating system and browser they're on.

I've run some tests on a virtual box trying to log in on IE7 - 9. All I got was a blank page, so I've removed my custom styling from the log-in form and it's now appearing. It seems likely this was the problem.

Not so fast Mr Penny... Bod here again on his trusty old IE9 PC.

Yes I previously clicked Login and got a blank screen too.
Now I do get a new Login screen but unfortunately having entered my details it then goes to the main index without logging me in.
Clicking the Login button a second time then has no effect.

I seem to be logged in as far as the Login screen is concerned, but logged out as far as the Index page is concerned. Is this feasible? Could you try your old virtual box again please?
