Such is so...
Okay, I see now, the Register User link from the main forum page works.
Log Out, then click the Log In link. Go to register here on the log in window page, it takes you to MacNews to register which is a different registration page. It registers you for the websites, but the registration doesn't populate from there to the forums.
When I asked Bird
that was what she had done,
if you try logging in from the MainPage,AppleCentral
... the Log-In takes you in an
infinite loop of denying your Log-In Info.
Throughout which you are unable to access
the POSTING OPTIONS.
Ms.Bird was finally able to Log-In using
an older version of Safari thru MacTech
The other member gave up until the issue's
resolved, or a work-around is worked out.
