This is one of the few features i hate with GT,trying to post on the front page articles

I am logged in on the forums,but not logged in on the front page...i try to log in,and it says my details are wrong(even though they are the same as i log in on the forums)


So I usually resort to using my twitter account,but for some reason after i authorise the GT app,it comes back error ...so guessing there is a problem with Twitter(although i have no problems on my twitter page)..see below for the error that comes up

but why is it such a pain to do this anyway?,can't we have it so that if we are logged in on the forums we are logged into the front page(or vice versa)

can't we just be logged into the site overall?

This is the twitter error i keep getting when it tries to redirect me after authorising the Gaming Trend app

I want to comment on the front page,as i know you are trying to get more traffic directed there and i comment on the articles as i am interested in the article...but the constant logging in and needing to authorise the app each time(if it works)is a big put off

Frustrates me too - quite a bit.   We are going to have the front page and forums unified in the coming months.  One login lets you go anywhere on the site without needing to ever log in again, as it should be.

Yeah, single sign-on is not trivial functionality.
