Always redirects to the forum.....
« on: February 12, 2015, 02:29:04 am »
I just bought my membership today, and I noticed that it let me further into the members site....IE accessing the store and the library. Now, every time I click Member Area from the homepage it just kicks me to the forum. I can't get to the Member Links at all.

Did something change?

Does anyone have a direct link to the member area? Frustrating....i know there is more....I saw it earlier, but now I can't get near anything.

Usually has to do with a local browser issue...  the standard thing to try is clearing browser cookies & cache.

There is more to be gained by members raising hands saying "I'll do that" instead of pointing fingers saying "nobody's doing that."

Hi Steve,

Just got my membership email from you yesterday...thanks.

I cleared my browser history/cache everything. Didn't help. I tried two other browsers, and a different computer. Now, because I cleared my history, I don't have the links saved that actually go to the member links any more. Could someone post the direct link please, or maybe PM it to me?

Thanks,
Pat

HOW TO GET TO MEMBER AREA
  • Go to COG home page at www.cog-online.org
  • Select Member Area from home menu. You may need to log in (use the same Username and Password as you use for the forum)
  • From Member Area menu, choose select Member Links

Member Links lists all of the member portal link choices

Patrick - One thing specific to your situation.  I just realized that you recently upgraded from forum subscriber to full member, but membership has not completed the manual part of the upgrade and changed your access permissions. What I indicated about clearing cache & cookies may not apply until after your permissions are updated.

It's weird though, because immediately after I paid I could get in. Now whenever I click member area it comes right back to the forum.

I should add that after the first time I visited I could still click the link in my browsing history and get there....but since I cleared my history I can't get there to try it again

Can you send me or post a direct link to the member area....like where it's supposed to take you so you see the member links, store, library, etc.? I had even downloaded one of the complete Concourier editions and I want to see the rest.

I NEED IT TO BE SPRING SO I CAN RIDE MY NEW BIKE, but I'll have to survive with this forum until then.

Cheers

So looks like I'm all official now, and the links worked and let me in. It's weird that it let me in at first, then changed it's mind.

Anyway, all good now.  :motonoises:
