I just noticed that I can no longer login to the forums unless Java scripts are enabled in my browser (Opera). Is this a new feature?
Slight correction. I cannot login from the forums starting page forums.opensuse.org. But if I want to “Reply to Thread” from any posting it takes me to the login page and I can login. Doesn’t sound logical to me.
In fact, “Login” does not even show on the forums starting page.
That is not right
Does the same happen with konqueror?
I have not seen this and we have no other reports like this that I am aware of
Test: was to use an alternative firefox profile that I have defined. It uses “noscript”, and opensuse.org is not in the whitelist for “noscript”.
I copied the forum url to bring up the page. It looks about the same as the main forum page when I am logged in, except that there is nothing on the top right. The extra stuff that usually appears on the login page is not there.
I have now clicked on “temporarily allow opensuse.org” in the “noscript” settings. The page changed to add the multi-line “NOTICE TO NEW FORUM USERS:” and to and the add the “help register|login” links on the top right.
