I am logged in properly and I can’t seem to get into the old magazines. When I click on the magazines and choose one, it bounces me back to the log in scenario. I log in there again and click on a magazine and it keeps repeating the log in cycle. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Erin,

The software has always required that you log in again (why that is the case, I do not know), but I was just able to view one of the older magazines. I suggest that you try again. If you are still unable to get the magazine to open up, let me know.

Thanks Bert, I’m not sure what was happening…..I’m aware of the dual log in scenario but it still kept bouncing me back to the login screen when I clicked on the magazine after logging in the second, third etc. etc. The next time I visited it worked fine………. Problem solved I guess.

Can’t access old magazine issues.  The site just cycles between asking me to log in and the when I select an issue it asks me to log in again – 10 times in a row just now.  Earlier today it did the same thing 4 times in a row then let me in.

It happened to me months ago and still does it but there is a work around to get to the mags. First you get to the mag page and select a mag that you don’t want to view. This mag you will not be able to view, every time you select it you will always get the sign in page and you are caught in a loop. So select a mag you don’t want and it will open another tab and do the sign in. Once you sign in it will loop you back to another sign in page, at this point select the first tab and select the mag you really want to view. The mag will open in the second tab and you just have to go to the first tab to select another.

There is a bug with viewing the magazines. The easiest method to defeat the bug is to use the Search function to find the specific magazine you want to view, e.g. Fall 2014. When you see the “View Magazine” link directly under the picture of the magazine, it should open with no problem.

Thanks for the tip.  I was getting ready to shoot my computer after 10 log-in tries!

Just now it worked as it should but now I remember something like the above happened before and it worked when I tried to look at a different issue.  Will bookmark (mentally) this workaround.

Gents,

FYI, we are working on fixing this issue.  Can you guys let me know what web browser and version number you are using?

Thanks.

I have Firefox 53.0 32bit and I haven’t blocked cookie but I do use a AD Blocker and they have a tracking protection option that is on. I probable have different version of Firefox on other computer I own and they all seen to do the same thing.

I do allow cookies but also have Ad Blocker on but I believe that I get a notification bar across the top of the screen when Ad Blocker blocks something and they give me the option of allowing the pop-up or not.  That doesn’t come up regarding viewing old issues.

Roger that. I too use AdBlock Plus and have no issues with viewing the magazine  But I use Chrome. BTW, I have Flash activated as it better displays FlippingBook. 

Would you mind trying Chrome and see if that works?

I think you may be on to something here.  I tried to view a magazine with Firefox and got the same problem as before until I used 1873man’s workaround and that worked right away.  Don’t have Chrome installed but did try with Internet Explorer and that worked just right on the very first try.  Looks like the problem may very well be with Firefox.

Nope… it happens to me and I use Internet Explorer 11.  If you try this again (tomorrow), start out with IE, and you will find that the same thing happens.  I use IE 11 on my home PC and my work PC, and the same thing happens on both.  The problem appears to be with the background WordPress software that the WACA website is running on.

All:  Please try it again this am using both Chrome and IE and let me know how it goes.  If you have any issues, check for cookie blocking and higher than normal security settings.  Also  make sure you are on the latest versions.

BTY, I have both Chrome and IE installed on my system in case one works better on a site that another bu I use Chrome 99% of the time and it seems fastest.  I do have flash enabled as FlippingBook works better with flash versus HTML 5.  I also use AdBlock Plus which is a free plug-in.  It has no issues with the WACA site and on the majority of other sites; when it does, you can easily disable it on the fly.  I have used Firefox in the past but never really saw the advantage.  IMHO, I really like Chrome the best as it seems to have the least issues and is the fastest performer.  Just MHO.

OK.  Followed Bert’s advise last night.  I rebooted my computer and then logged with IE and had no problems accessing the old magazine issues.  Didn’t even have to sign in a second time with IE.  Thought that maybe some traces remained from my Firefox log ins so I repeated the procedure this morning.  Once again I was able to access the old issues in IE without having to sign in to WACA a second time when I requested to view an old issue.

It appears to me that, with my computer anyway, the problem is with Firefox, especially since with IE I don’t even have to sign in a second time to view old issues.  There are a few other sites that I occasionally visit that sometimes give me problems with Firefox and switching to IE corrects them.

BTW:  right now I can’t access any old issues in Firefox but can in IE.  In Firefox the “VIEW MAGAZINE” button is missing but not in IE as I type this.

Also, last night when I was posting my responses here, on 2 occasions when I hit “submit” the page went blank and told me to try again.  My writing was lost so I finally entered my final response through IE.

So perhaps a solution is to use IE for WACA and Firefox for other site (although IMHO I fail to see the advantage of ever using Firefox).

Had just decided to use IE for browsing old issues, which isn’t something I do that often.  As to Firefox, anything from Google and Microsoft is so invasive and since I’m not into mobile devices, I’ll stick to Firefox.  Thanks for the help on this issue.
