[quote="T.A.Rodgers"]It's not spam stuck on the site. It's the php code. There are multiple errors in the admin control panel that the WD admins need to fix. I don't think they will fix since they are planning to replace. Hopefully only another month of pain.

Since Brian left I can not tell you what's going on. Brian's replacement, Jessica, has not reached out to me. I don't even know if they plan to have an outside person continue to admin for them.[/quote]

Jessica said she was moving on in her final column but I did not see where she was replacing Brian for online content. I thought she was to write occasional articles for the print version.

I wonder how much is WD and how much is being driven by f+w executives.

[quote="rob-lost"][quote="Noizchild"]I check in here every day and the web site's fixed. Yay![/quote]
Something's changed. It's loading a lot faster.
But BBCode (if not disabled) still causes issues with posting.

It's progress. But not fixed.[/quote]
But now we can log in without problems.

Not for me.

Logged out of "rob-lost" on my work PC. Now I can't access the forums as rob-lost OR robjvargas on that PC. As you can see here, my original robjvargas works on one browser on one PC. As long as I don't log out, rob-lost still works on another browser/PC.

So you have at least two accounts? How many more do you have? Why have the duplicates at all ??

Probably for the same reason I have two accounts - I can only log in with one. The other one is there, just not accessible.

I'm on my 5th account because the other 4 stopped working. The problem lies within the combination of PHP and Word Press coding. The code between the two does not like tracking the same account. Eventually, it will stop working. And once you log off of each computer or something on the computer causes the cookies to disappear you lose access. I only have admin access to the PHP side, so changing the password on one side seems not to fix the issue.

Hopefully the new forum will not be a php - Word Press combination.

Why would anybody mix wordpress with PHP? Is it possible to back up cookies and restore them when needed? I had speculated that WD had lost some files and had no backups to replace them from.

Because I'm not a banned user attempting to trick WD into letting me in.

WD knows that the user ID system has problems. robjvargas still works on one instance. In those cases where robjvargas stopped working, I created and used rob-lost to login. WD knows this because I've explicit with them about this. Now it appears that if I logout of rob-lost, that ID, too, fails to authenticate.

So if any of us are not sockpuppets for banned accounts, WD permits this until such time as they fix their site.
