Summary0000477: Round in circles on log-in
DescriptionAttempting to view any page on the Ravelry.com website will take you to the log-in screen https://www.ravelry.com/account/login (which is fair enough so far as it goes - this is a member-restricted site), but the log-in then repeatedly fails.

After supplying a valid name and password the requested original URL will appear in the URL bar briefly but the page is not rendered before you are once again returned to the log-in screen. (If you supply an incorrect password there is no attempt to transfer to the requested URL, so the data is clearly being received and acted upon at the far end.)

Once you do manage to get logged in (I haven't managed to work out what triggers it) you then have access to the whole site, with the absence of the JavaScript features, but cannot then log out. This is less of a problem but still puzzling.

The log (attached) suggests that the problem is occurring somewhere around "Failed creating namespace" (line 86 in log)
Additional Informationharriet added a note on Tue Jan 22 04:09:04 2013

Addendum: it is possible to log into the site using the test JavaScript version with Javascript *disabled*, but only on the ARMini. The identical version of Netsurf (825 js-on) running on the Iyonix requires the cookies to be deleted as previously.
(RISC OS 5.19/5.18)

Uploaded: logs of failed (on Iyonix) and succeeded (on ARMini) attempts to open http://www.ravelry.com and log in nusing same username and password.

This is apparently a [lack of] JavaScript issue in addition to a cookies issue, since it is possible to log in to this site without prior cookie deletion using the test JavaScript version.

Further to this: you have to open the login page *before* attempting to delete the Ravelry cookies - doing so 'in advance' doesn't work. Required sequence: display http://www.ravelry.com/account/login
Show cookies
Delete www.ravelry.com cookies
Log in

The answer to logging-in is to deletes cookies, apparently (I knew I'd done something or other in the past....)

And the solution to the XSRF Netsurf/Sourceforge problem which prevents the posting of comments is still to log out of Sourceforge :-(
