Weird bug when trying to log in today.

If I use the log in at the top of the page, I get an error message that my session timed out when posting, and to go back and try again.  The issue keeps recurring - tried on Chrome, Safari, on my mac and on my android phone.  Cleared cookies, cache, history, restarted the browser, and tried the script in the tech support thread.

BUT - if I use the link to log in (right above the log in fields), or type in the wrong password so the secondary log in fields appear in the main window, I can log in to the site.  Just started happening this afternoon.

Am also having this issue. Only just started happening today within the last hour(ish), at least for me. :(

Yes, that timeframe seems about right.

I am not sure this will help but have you tried using this script? (clearing cookies through the browser isn't always totally effective)

Have tried, but session error persists on the main index login.

For clarity's sake: it is the login on the main index that's embedded at the top of the page that doesn't work for me & keeps producing the session error: https://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php

Can still log in via: https://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?action=login

No worries!  I appreciate the suggestion.  I'm glad there's a workaround for the time being, so hopefully other people having this issue will see the post and how to get around the current website weirdness.

Edit:  And thank you Blythe for posting the workaround clearly, since I am apparently a space cadet and didn't think to do so.   ::)

Patch changed the way logins work, probably to throw off spammers and hackers. Unfortunately the header login code is custom work and it didn't recognize it to patch the change in.
