Log In Help

Need some help.

I am having a very difficult time logging onto the site. I get the "login failed" page every time I try to sign in.

I have gone the "change your password" route three times. When I put the new password in it, again, goes to "log in failed." If I then go to the home page it turns out I was signed in. Problem is that it won't let me sign in again with the password sent from the site. It also won't let me change the password successfully.

If anyone has any suggestions please email me at doug@themcnairs.net since it is so hard for me to sign in to read your replies.

Thanks very much for your help. I love the site.

So to confirm what's happening: you enter your User Name and Password as normal, then click the Log In box?

If this is the error that you are getting then some of us are successfully using an EZ workaround:

Database error
The XS11.com Forums database has encountered a problem.

Please try the following:
Load the page again by clicking the Refresh button in your web browser.
Open the xs11.com home page, then try to open another page.
Click the Back button to try another link.
The xs11.com forum technical staff have been notified of the error, though you may contact them if the problem persists.

We apologise for any inconvenience.

I'm not sure if that is the Error Message you are getting, but if it is just try this to Log on:

Enter User Name
Enter Password
Click on that 'Remember Me' small box to the right of your user name
Then click Log In box

Next you will get at Database Error popup message that I listed above.
All you need to do is click on that Refresh
when you click on that hypertext refresh then

Presto, you should be logged in

I think quite a few of us are getting on 11.com using that process.
Works like a charm every time. Never had any problems at all getting on using that method.
btw: I've been having to login that way for about six months or so.

Good Luck, hope its that EZ.

Yep ^^^^

That's the only way login has worked for me in I don't know how long.
1980 XS1100G "Dolly G" Full Dresser (with a coat of many colors )
1979 XS1100SF (stock-euro mods planned)
1984 XV700L Virago (to be hot-modded)
1983 XJ750MK Midnight Maxim (semi-restored DD)
1977 XS650D ( patiently awaiting resto)

Sometimes it takes a whole tank of gas before you can think straight.

I had some trouble, but now I just go directly to the xs11.com page...click on forum and all works as it used to...my name and password automatically populate in the blanks and I'm in.
