Frequently Asked Questions

Here you will find a few of the questions we get most often and the most used solution.

The most common problem we are contacted about involves the ability to stay logged in and see content for members.  The solution most often involves the browser settings that a user has set up for the use of cookies or the browser is in a private mode (incognito or safe) that won’t allow your login to maintain a connection.

Your browser may be in private mode.  Information about what this is, how to turn it off, and how to turn it on can be found here. You will need to undo the setting by following the directions to reverse the settings.

Questions about cookies or how to set up your browser so that cookies are allowed? Go here: What are cookies?

Using Safari?: Cookies and the default settings sometimes cause problems so make sure they are enabled for sites you visit or at least for this site.

Enabling cookies in Safari for iOS (iPhone/iPad/iPod touch/Mac)
Settings>Safari
Turn off ‘Block All Cookies’.

Apple has a helpful article regarding the topic here.

We suggest that the settings be Allow from Websites I Visit.

User name or password problems: Who can keep up with them all?
