Head over to the NEW revamped UKAuthors website where there are new forums and lots more good stuff!
Hello everyone. I have been off line as modem got srtuck by lightning, but now an back on line but have spend about an hour trying to get back on UKA as it did not believe my password, which I know was correct, so had to ask for reset. That took ages as did login because there is a stupid thing called captcha (or something like that) which makes me choose pictures which with my having to look out of one eye wit out of date glasses is almost impossible to I keep getting refused. I doubt if I have much hope of an eye operation until the bloody cofid is over so I may have to give up if I can't log in but at least I'll have another try here today.
Can you try ticking the box beneath the sign in? It says keep me logged in... In your browser, make UKA a favourite, then when you want to return to UKA you just need to select favourites; UKA; and you should go straight to the site. Let me know if it works for you...
@francimanSounds like good advice. Shall go and try it out now while I remember. I do have another puzzling query: when I read a post and want to comment I don't know if I should comment straight after the original post or reply to the last of the comments already there. Don't see any dates.
Well I logged out so as to get back to SIGN IN but the only box under thast was 'create account.' Can't do that as already have account. Went to look for firefox favourites but couldn't find where to click. Will try later or tomorrow. Have made a note. Also went to my profile and tried to load avatar but obviously did it wrong. I'm really hopeless at such things like following instructions.. Now being blown away in a gale but have to go and feed my ducks..
i had more or less same problem. there is no way of loading an avatar and i cannot see any box to put in text about oneself. my password did not work either and had to make a new one....
will give it another try, not giving up yet, as i am stubborn
I had exactly the same problem Daffni. I haven't logged in for years so the system had forgotten me. I had to create a new account to get back in. It would probably be the quickest way in for you too.
Hi David. I seem to have managed it now except for having to repeatedly click those stupid captch pics. I can't se them most times. Incidentally on the matter of pictures, can you tell me how to put my aravar instead of the cartoon? Now I must go back to trying to make my new website. Thanks to lockdown I am learning a bit of technology. I suppose that is some benefit. Bye now
