View Full Version : Consolidated members area?

August 7th, 2004, 02:21 PM
I have purchased ReviewPost, PhotoPost, and PhotoPost Classifieds. I have 3 logins to what is essentially the same area of the members site for each. Is there any chance I can get access to all my downloads in one place? This has bugged me for a year and would like to know if there are any plans to put everything "under one roof"?

It's such a pain to have to log out and in with another username/password combo.

I dont know what you mean? Three download areas all in the same. THEY ARE NOT

Photopost members area


Reviewpost members area


Classifieds members area


All 3 products have separate domains.

That looks like two domains to me. The point is, 3 logins for 3 products from the same company is excessive. Lets say you save your login for Photopost, well, if I want to download the Classifieds app I have to enter it manually every time.

I think the point here how the authentication routines are setup. The login for these products is not a persons email. It is tracked by the members area login itself which is checked against a listing for that specific product for authentication to a specific download area.

I do not know if there are plans at redoing the entire way the members area is setup. I can pass it along.

It is a good point mixylplik3.
I also have the problem especially when I have told my computer to remember passwords... then its a real pain to keep finding and manually entering the various passwords to the various members areas.

If you are concerned about having to enter the passwords manually each time then I recommend Roboform.

I agree. It stinks as it stands but PhotoPost rarely listens to it's customers. I am trying to download the latest Photopost and cannot as I keep getting directed to the PPClassifieds members area instead even though I am going to http://www.photopost.com/members/members.pl

Then you are entering a classifieds license member signin

Photopost has included many customer suggestions into its software. To state Photopost rarely listens to its customers is simply far from the truth.

It has been explained before. Given the way the site is set up there is no easy way to setup like you want.

Things are always being looked into to make things simpler and that takes time.

I'm not entering anything. IE just takes you there. Part of it's "remember password" feature. You can clear cookies etc, but you still get taken to the same place. Seperate members areas for the seperate products doesn't seem like much to ask especially for those of us who have bought all of them.

I have separate members access on all my products as well and can access them all if I use the proper link.
