You have Javascript on?

Can you try clearing your cookies and relogging in?

I have never been able to log into the main page. I thought it wasn't possible. When I try it says nothing at all (no failure/success to log message, nothing). I always just switch to the app if I want to comment on the front page. Is it supposed to be possible to log in to the front page on the website? I'm using Safari on iPad btw.

I just did the following:

1. Logged out of forums.
2. Went to main page
3. Clicked: Logon (No confirmation / failure message appears. Logon link still says logon).

But...

4. Click on Forums link.... and I'm logged in.

I am also unable to logon to the main page. I tried setting up a new account, thinking maybe I didn't create one, but it said my username and email were already in use. Maybe I forgot my password but there's no password reset link anywhere, it just reloads the main page after a failed login. Then I did notice that I'm logged in to the forums automatically, so I'm at a loss.

I'm really not sure what the bug might be except that there is a login on the main page at all. I have never heard of anyone being able to log into the main page of TA. In order to comment on articles you have always been required to login to Disqus or use the app.

If anyone has ever, in the history of TA, been logged into the main page, please post here.
