Login Change - login with email

Next week (Tuesday) as you login you will be prompted to use your e-mail address and password instead of your username and password. This change is being made for a number of reasons.

The biggest reason has to do with the forum being part of the RV Life family of sites.
Many of us have accounts at other RV Life sites, specifically campgroundreviews.com. In time you will be able to login to Crossroads Owners Club as well as other RV Life sites where you have accounts with the same login, simplifying things substantially.
We hope to have an enhanced mobile app available as well that will allow you to read and post on multiple RV Life sites where you have registered an account if you desire, although this is not yet fully developed.

Some other reasons:
  • Username logins were case sensitive and often had punctuation that could be miskeyed or forgotten and has been a regular cause of login trouble.
  • It's easier to remember your e-mail address then username for most folks.
  • E-mail address are not visible on the forum but usernames (half of the login combo) are and so there is a little better account security.
Your username will remain unchanged and display as usual next to your posts.

If you have trouble logging in with your e-mail address instead of username there will be some prompts on the login screen to help you and a link to update your email address if needed.

Thanks in advance for your patience with these changes - we're working hard to improve security and keep the site easy to use.

Is anyone else having issues logging in? I don’t know if it’s the new procedure or not, but that’s about when the issues began for me. (Yes, I am using my email) When I first try to log in, it appears as I’m NOT logged in. I’ve found if I then click on a topic, then my name appears as I’m logged in, and I can participate as normal. Never had to do this before...

No problems here Steve.
Maybe one of the administrators will chime in here with an answer for you.

I have to log in a different way now from what I used to. In the past I would just click on the log in and enter my user name and password in the pop up box, and be logged in. I’ve now found that I first have to click on a topic, and then click on the log on box. Then I enter my user name and password. I’m am then logged in.

Not a huge deal, just doing it in a different order now. Hope that makes sense to you...thanks for checking.

So, to give a bit more detail, if I go straight to log in, I get ďThanks for loggin in Steve7Ē. But it leaves me as unregistered. I then have to click on a thread, and then go through the log in again to get me logged in. Iíve reduced a step by just clicking on a thread and then logging in. Itís not terrible, just different. But I will keep doing it so I can converse with you great group of people!

Steve can you try doing s restart on your device? I think this may be a caching issue.
