Some are reporting registration, access trouble

Some readers are sending email saying that they are having a hard time with this blog’s registration form.

I had to turn up the security option to “paranoid” mode to keep out spammers.

Also, it may be that your browser may have an ad block plugin that doesn’t like the registration form.  I suggest you set your ad block plugin to accept the whole domain.

Sorry about the trouble you are having.   I am still getting successful registrations, so I know the form is working.

If there are problems with registration or with accessing the blog, send me your IP address so that I can “whitelist” it in my anti-spammer software.

    Fr. Z, I had a hard time earlier this evening (GMT) logging in. Didn’t succeed until the third try. I almost thought *Anonymous* had hacked the site. Quite chilling.

    Father, I have no knowledge as to why your blog is having trouble, but if, as Regis says, it is Anonymous, then you must be hitting the target. (why else would you be taking flak?)

    I have had difficulty signing in recently, but it has been two weeks or so. The Word Press box doesn’t recognize either my name or password, not sure which, then the next try at signing in will bring up the WP dashboard,where I can sign in and go to your main screen. Talk about paranoid, the first time it happened, I thought I’d been kicked off.

    Dear Father,
    You have approved my registration and on the same day I once logged in to your blog. But the next day my username is blocked. It seems my ID treated as spam. Even your blog was not allowing to write a message. Later I wrote a mail to you, I am not sure you have read it.

    But today when I tried to log in, it is accepting. I am happy.

    I love your blog and homilies which i heard on youtube .
    You are the one of few prophetic voices in the modern world.

    I don’t know how related my news is, but I am newly registered. I didn’t notice anything especially awkward about my end of the process; in fact, the CAPTCHA part worked more smoothly for me than my usual experiences with it had led me to expect.

    The other day, though, I found my registration e-mail in my junk folder. I hadn’t noticed anything in the main inbox and had been assuming that things simply would take a little time. But I do check my junk folder and found the approval e-mail, by then a few days old.

    I haven’t logged in many times in the few days since, but so far I haven’t had any problems yet.

    I was having problems logging in from an iPad and iPhone. Finally logged in through my laptop. Go figure. At least I am in now.
