Hmmm, that's me stumped. And you're starting from https://army.ca/forums/index.php?action=login, not some other link?
Yep, that's the start point.

And for me as well.  I have no pre-typed passwords.....it just give me an "password incorrect" message almost everytime.

I've been having the "incorrect password" problem as well the first time I tried to log in. It almost always worked on the second attempt.

Your discussion about the https above had me look t things closer and I noted that the shortcut I had brought me to an "unsecure" version of the login page. I've now deleted that and replaced my link with the one above and so far it seems to log me in properly the first time. I'll keep an eye out.

WOW!
I have not been @ army.ca in awhile and not using a shortcut, I typed army.ca in the location bar, hit enter and the page brought me to the "Guest" page and I thought I must have deleted my cookies, so I clicked on 'login'. It also gave me that the login username was not secure and sure enough at the location bar (Firefox) it indicated it was not a secure page. I did not attempt to login, but looked in the Admin folder and found your post.
Using the link provided gave me a secure Login page and here I am!
Something must be amiss.   ???

It's this:

https://www.thesslstore.com/blog/firefox-chrome-warning-about-insecure-login-pages/

In a nutshell, use https://army.ca, not http://army.ca. Solutions for Navy.ca, Air-Force.ca, etc. are planned for Sept, when we have to buy new security certificates.

Sort of related. We had mail flow issues, and for a period of time all the mail just piled up until the log jam was fixed. The mall room got pretty messy! ;)

I'm love the site, enjoy sharing professional information, support of each other ....

I've been loath to mention this hiccup...lived with my work around instead.
But if Mike is looking at certificates, and Navy.ca upgrade issues I will support them.

My problem from the http:/navy.ca, (ACK issues), as a paid member, I can't enjoy
simple filtering services.

Example: The top screen "Show unread posts since last visit" will offer no posts.
yet there are multiple posts on the site. I work around this by going into each area
that I'm not interested in and clicking on "clear messages".

This item has been ongoing since last fall. I did not want to add to the list.

Hmm... if you click this link, does it show unread replies to your posts?

https://navy.ca/forums/index.php?action=unreadreplies

Or the non-secured version:

Is it my imagination or am I reading posts one day, "Yesterday", and then seeing them twelve or so hours later as posts time stamped having changed to indicate a post for "Today"?

Is it possible you don't have any unread replies? :)

Bear in mind that unread replies to your posts (https://army.ca/forums/index.php?action=unreadreplies) is different from unread replies since last visit (https://army.ca/forums/index.php?action=unread) and different again from all unread posts (https://army.ca/forums/index.php?action=unread;all;start=0).

I've been having the same issue with "Show Unread Posts since last visit" never showing any posts.
I have tried logging out, making sure I am logged out of the various computers I read this forum on, and nothing changes.
Thanks for all the hard work you guys put into this site, btw! A wealth of resources!

That happens rarely to me; usually clicking on "Show all unread" then works for me.

I think it may be related to Tapatalk (as I access the site both through a desktop computer and through my phone); do other people having that experience also use that program?

I've had the same happen to me. Like others, I just click 'Read all Unread Topics'.

I just scroll down to the bottom of the page where it says "RECENT POSTS" and click on that.  I have actually saved page 1 of RECENT POSTS on my Favourites Bar. -->  https://army.ca/forums/index.php?action=recent

I tried a variety of different ways, I don't access the site using Tapatalk, just IE and Chrome.
"Show" unread posts would show no new posts, no option to click to see all unread. "Show new replies" sometimes worked, but there were not always posts for people to reply to.

The problem seems to be fixed today, so crossing my fingers and going to read as much as I can.

Made a change this morning to stop the error log from filling up. Side effect: nobody could post or possibly even log in.

Fixed, error log is back to growing fast enough to run us out of space in about a week. (I just have to remember to empty it, weekly, until I find a better way.)

Apparently, a "USUAL SUSPECT"

I start pounding on F5 to refresh the page when it comes up.  Very intermittent - it will come up continuously for a while, but then go away.
