Can anyone login to geekzone mobile? I can log into the desktop version on the same browser/device, but mobile just says wrong username/password, which I'm confient I'm typing in correctly.

Maybe it's because there's no captcha check/prompt?

I think the problem is captcha, as you suggest. I'm using Firefox, as Chrome will not behave at all for me with Geekzone.

I haven't used the mobile version for a while now but the desktop version on my mobile did take longer than usual just now.

I was talking about mobile Chrome but desktop site, will not login. Mobile Geekzone works, but it's so horrible it's not worth bothering.

I'm the reverse.  the desktop sites on mobile Chrome and mobile Firefox work but the mobile sites on both keep saying wrong username and password.

I use chrome on the desktop, it works OK and I can log in normally. I use Opera Mobile on my phone, I cannot log in on either the Full or Mobile sites.

 

When I try the full site using my phone I get a message that says "Error; You did not complete the CAPTCHA challenge or have an ad/script blocker hiding the CAPTCHA"  I cannot find any settings that would cause the CAPTCHA not to display.

TL;DR: Fixed.

 

Explanation: today I deployed a change to the hash used for passwords - basically a hash of the hash. I've done the change on the main site... and forgot about Geekzone Mobile (ooops). I have now ported the code to Geekzone Mobile and changed it. There was never a captcha on Geekzone Mobile.

 

I am also testing HTTPS on Geekzone Mobile so this should be changed soon as well.
