Why can't I log in on iPad or iPhone

Posted by kitchendetective (My Page) on

I have no problem logging on to Gardenweb on my iMac desk top. In the past, I had no problem logging in on my iPhone or iPad. Then, all of a sudden, every time I tried to log in on the iPhone, it kept telling me to log in all over again. The same thing started happening, but only intermittently on the iPad (2, 3G), too. Then the iPad stopped taking the log in completely. Yesterday, it allowed me to log in again. Today, it won't. Huh???

I submitted a trouble ticket with GW this morning. Apparently there was an issue with one of the servers and some folks couldn't log in. It seems to be resolved now.

"It seems to be resolved now."
Nope. Phone still doesn't work.

Do you get an error? Any recent password changes?

I mistakenly assumed that your issue was related to GW and not your phone. My apologies.

I think it is a GW problem. At least, GW is the only site where I am having it. I can now enter my password and post using my computer and my iPad, as I am now doing, but I still cannot log in via iPhone. It keeps telling me that I must log in after I enter my user name and password on the iPhone. My updates are current, if that matters. No, no error message appears, no passwords have changed.

try logging out then go to the main page at GW to do that go up to the very top of the page in the colored part and click on Garden Web, from there try your logging in. For some reason many times it works from there when it won't at the forums.

Also be sure to go into the phone settings for the browser and clear all the cache and history and cookies.

I appreciate your efforts to help. I did try clearing caches, cookies, etc., and logging in from the top, but, as of last night, I can no longer log in on the iPad or on the iPhone. This is not intended as at all sarcastic. I'm frustrated, but I guess it really isn't that important to be able to make GardenWeb entries from i-devices.

Have you maybe tried a different browser?

Here is a link that might be useful: Chrome for iPhone and iPad

I don't have any I products but have no problem at all with my various Android devices.

RE: Why can't I log in on iPad or iPhone

So, I just put Chrome on my iPad and this is a test. If it works, that still doesn't answer why my old browser would have newly minted issues, though. I'm sure I sound like a techno- idiot, but I really do want to understand.

It works on Safari on iPad, too. Neither works on iPhone. No one on other fora seems to be having the same problem.

Seems to be a 3G issue, for those following along. If I put in my Wifi password for whichever node services the area of the house where I happen to be, the problem goes away. If I go back to trying to use 3G, the problem returns and is present probably 99% of the time.

I tried the wifi fix, it works! Thanks, I could log in in my iPad on AT&T LTE wireless until about a month ago, then all of the sudden it no longer would let me log in.

Now I can.
