IE users can't login... only IE

for some reason when users running Internet Explorer try to login... it doesn't do anything.  Doesn't login, just ask for U/N and PW again. 

Tried this on 3 different computers, Mac and PC... tried logging in using Safari and Firefox and it works just fine.  Only IE users can't login!

help please!

Huh
  

I find your lack of faith disturbing.

OK -

A few questions

1 - Has it always been this way or is this a recent issue?

2. Have you tried Compatibility View?

3. Did you install a theme or modify index.html?

4. What OS and webserver is it hosted on???

IF you would like me to check with other IE versions, PM me the URL and a username/password.

Good Luck
Cool

I am having the same problem. When a user tries to register using IE, the Register and Forgot password are both grayed out. When using Firefox, those 2 options are not grayed out. I am using a Linux server on GoDaddy. What is compatability view? Is that an option inside the Admin Center? Sad

 Is a IE feature to allow viewing a web page without specific IE restrictions.  Look under the Tools menu for Compatibility

Have cookies been switched off? Microsoft has a terrible (but random) habit of turning off IE's cookies during one of its weekly security updates, in my experience (limited though it is!)

My problem is fixed. I had it "under maintenance" which doesn't allow registration. Thank you.  Smiley
