Why does the Fluther login box flash red, when i log in?

Asked by john65pennington (29192points) February 5th, 2010

Each time i attempt to log into Fluther, the top line in the login box flashes red? does this mean Fluther has a virus? during an eight hour period on Fluther, i have to re-login at least 15 times. i know this is not normal. anyone else having this problem? hey Fluther guys, can you check this out?

It probably has something to do with your security settings or your protection software on your computer.

John, I had to log back in this morning, but I had no flashing boxes. Having to log in that many times in one day…there’s definitely something wrong there. Have you changed anything in your settings recently?

It always does this. Always. When you first hit the sign-in, it flashes red briefly. For those who don’t see it, hit “sing up” instead of logging in. The first box of the sign up thing does it too. It’s not a problem.

@EmpressPixie ; I stay signed in and don’t have to re sign on except for about every 1–2 weeks. I just go to and I am already signed in.

@Judi me, too. I just stay signed in.

Judi, that’s what I normally do as well. Every so often I have to sign in again. However, if you are running a lot of security on your computer, you might have to sign in every time.

and @john65pennington IS a cop, so I bet he has a ton of security on his computer :-)

My guess is that you have cookies disabled.

The reason the login box flashes is that when you click a login link farther down on the page, it shows you where your cursor has jumped.

I can see why the color is confusing though. We’ll look into changing that.

@andrew You’re a good man, Charlie Brown. :-)
