OEM, it's not working for me. Can not login using my credentials, when logging in as guest it only shows those error messages from the top of the gadget.

Not sure why, the gadget has always worked using the same username & PW of your seveforums membership. I just closed and reopened it without problem.

Are you sure your entering the password correctly?

Sorry for such a silly question, but thats the only thing I can think of.

Try signing out sevenforums, clear out your cache, then try signing into the gadget first. If that doesn't work, sign into sevenforums, then into the gadget webpage.

Added/Edited

When I'm signed into the gadget webpage and reopen a new gadget webpage, I get the login page, but without entering any info and just clicking login, logs me into webpage. Another words if I'm alreadly signed in to a gadget webpage and if I want to open another, I can leave the username and password blank and click login and the page opens.

Regarding the Guest link, thats the same way it works with the actuall gadget as well, ...dunno whats up with that either, but it has nothing to do with gadget, but with either sf or the server.

Re username and pword

gadget must use another dbase because several members prior to the problem have been unable to log on to gadget using the correct username and password.

It went so far as to have them (jonathan_King, Tews, and several others) need to have a different user for gadget

Thats really strange, ...as you know I haven't been on the site in awhile, however the other day when I went to log in for the first time in a long time, it wouldn't except my old PW and I had to have it reset. Maybe thats all it will take is to create a new password.

Attachment 84625

While my browser was set to 88% to display all of the webgadget correctly, I had problems with clicking the add attachment link, so there might be other issues when having to resize your browser to a different size than 100%. It might work best in its own browser window changing the size to fit, and open another window at the normal 100% for working and posting.

Its not I that deserves any credit for the gadget, but I appreciate your kindness.
However I did discover the link addresses that allow it to run in a browser.

Regarding the warnings, that is either from sf and/or the server the gadget uses. The're not generated from the gadget as I see them too and I don't have the gadget installed. Not much can be done with that on mine/our end. Same with current members on-line. We could fit many more members on the list, but thats out of our control.

Either way, it's an awesome gadget and well worth the wait for it to be perfected.
