Unable to Sign in to Forums Using Opera

  • This post is about Opera 20.0 for Windows. I had a question and wanted to post to the Opera forums. I clicked on "SIGN IN" and after entering my username/password it gave me the "What next?" screen. In the upper right, it showed a user icon, indicating I was logged in.

    When I returned to the forums, it changed back to "SIGN IN". When I clicked on that, I was not prompted for username/password but immediately returned to the "What next?" page. When I tried clicking on "START A NEW DISCUSSION" in the forum, I was returned again to "What next?".

    So, I couldn't post to the forums with Opera 😞 I had to use another browser.

    I limited cookies in Opera but I allowed [*.]

    Why won't the forums work in Opera 20.0?

  • I limited cookies in Opera but I allowed [*.]

    Try cleaning cookies (for * and the cache. It works if you fully enable cookies?

  • I cleared the cookies and allowed all cookies. It still does not work.

    What is going on? I'm trying to access the OPERA forums with the OPERA browser! This should work, of all things.

  • Ah, you have to have JavaScript enabled.
