    Default Workaround for 10/27/2021-to-when-it-gets-fixed Forums Login Problem

    Before attempting to log in on the Forums, go to the Wiki, open a page, and Log In there. When successfully logged in on the Wiki, THEN go to the Forums. Seems to be working from there.

    Can an admin put such a temporary message at the top of the Forums page?

    Yes, that just worked for me.

    I found out about that trick from the support mailing list (looking at archive).

    It wasn't when I posted this. There was no mention of the problem on the Status page at that time.
