Is anyone else having difficulty navigating in PBS?  I keep going to the home/login page, but can't get to my account home page (where I see books coming in and going out) and often as I am navigating through the site get bumped back to that home page.  I'm using Chrome and have never had a problem like this before.

Yes, I'm seeing the same issues in IE.

I think there is something wrong with the cookies ... because what it's doing is the site is checking to see if you have permission to access certain areas and then deciding "no" cause you are not logged in (because it is not remembering that you are logged in).

So, if you click on a link that you have to be logged in to see ... you get chucked back to the login page. But I'm finding that after I log in a bunch of times, it finally remembers.

I'm having the same issue in Firefox.  It's not making me log back in, but it usually kicks me back to the main page the first time I click on something I have to be logged in to see, then the second time I click it, it lets me in.

I'm having the same issue on my iPad. Doesn't go to login for me, just to the PBS home page.

Similar issues here, too. It started happening last night. It doesn't seem to matter if I use a link from off the website or a bookmark stored in my browser, or even a link provided via email to a watched thread.

Has anyone already reported it?

Here's a link to ta thread in "Club Members' Thoughts" on this topic: http://www.paperbackswap.com/Getting-Directed-Wrong-Pages-PBS/topic/279016/

According to a post in that thread, the PBS Team is aware of the problem and is working on resolving it.

I am having issues too.  A lot of times the home page won't open.  It times out on me or it takes a LONG time to open.  It's only been happening recently so hopefully the problem will get fixed soon.
