I saw in another forum that a lot of people have trouble to login and I had too, until I googled the error message:

Code: Select all

The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again.
The solution is simply to delete all previous talkchess cookies saved for your browser.

As you can see this worked for me and so I suppose it will work for all :)
I know those people can still read the site but not write thus I hope they will check this thread for the solution.

Next problem is that instead of a given link it shows a huge pic of the linked site in my signature...

Thanks for all the work in server migration to HGM, Srdja, Ed and whoever is/was involved!

Talkchess nowadays is a joke - it is full of trolls/idiots/clone lovers/people stuck in the pleistocene > 80% of the posts fall into this category...

Thanks! I had the login problem too and deleting the 4 cookies associated with talkchess fixed it like you promised!

Great job with saving the forum in time. I also like the new look!

The talkchess.com domain is still connecting me to CloudFlare, which alternately serves me the message I put up during moving, or a forum stripped of all formatting. I am here now on the www.talkchess.com domain.

This could be new behaviour of the phpBB forum, which was upgraded to the latest version. You would do well to change your signature anyway, as it is arguably a charter violation.
