Technical note about member logins on www.archbbsdl.com

Hi, all!

For a period of time, there was a problem with logging in to Archives BBS Member site.  When the authenticated user pressed “FileFinder” it would request a further authentication.

If the user selected “Remember my PW” the system would display the first 30 thumbnails after 1 or 2 authentication tries.

However, if the user specified NOT to remember the password, access to Archives BBS Member site was prevented by the multiple authentication challenges.

This was a significant problem because I realize that not everyone wants the browser to “remember their password” because of issues with shared computers, etc.

I’m pleased to say that I believe that this problem has been fixed.  I have tested this with Chrome, Firefox and Edge and the authentication process appears to work properly.

I would very much appreciate your noting your experience in access to Archives BBS the comments below.

Thank you for your patience, and I hope to get some of you back as subscribers who were affected by this problem.
