Login Changes - login with e-mail soon

Next week as you login you will be prompted to use your e-mail address and password instead of your username and password. This change is being made for a number of reasons.

The biggest reason has to do with the forum being part of the RV Life family of sites.
Many of us have accounts at other RV Life sites, specifically campgroundreviews.com. In time you will be able to login FGRV as well as other RV Life sites where you have accounts with the same login, simplifying things substantially.
We hope to have an enhanced mobile app available as well that will allow you to read and post on multiple RV Life sites where you have registered an account if you desire, although this is not yet fully developed.

Some other reasons:
  • Username logins were case sensitive and often had punctuation that could be miskeyed or forgotten and has been a regular cause of login trouble.
  • It's easier to remember your e-mail address then username for most folks.
  • E-mail address are not visible on the forum but usernames (half of the login combo) are and so there is a little better account security.

Your username will remain unchanged and display as usual next to your posts.

If you have trouble logging in with your e-mail address instead of username there will be some prompts on the login screen to help you and a link to update your e-mail address if needed.

Thank in advance for your patience with these changes - we're working hard to improve security and keep the site easy to use.

I didn't either, Alf, but this a.m. I needed to login with my email address.

Good luck everybody!

This morning I was wondering why I was on the forum as a guest - some of my preferences were not there. Sometimes we clear the "cookies" if we do some on-line shopping, but I did not think that was the case. Easy enough to log in, and I am glad you are working on making the forum better and safer!

I did use my email, after having entered it, but it did not accept my password.

Admins, please note, the password reset email script still tells you use your old Log-in name, not your email.

Not sure why it didn't like old password, but successfully changed. All good.

Who are those people pounding on the front door?

Well, I tried to login with my username, not having seen this, but when it kept asking for an @ sign, I tried email. Yeah! It worked!

Not a problem, and anything for security.

The new account worked. Now I have to go in and merge the two. I hope nobody else does this - have a heart, y'all. We're all volunteers on this bus.

Don't like it!

Although I understand tech changes need to be made, I'm NOT happy about this. I'm an old dog trying to be taught a new trick, and all my other RV forum accounts still happily take my username/Member ID as a log in.

With at least 1/2 dozen email addresses, I have to rack my brain after every unsuccessful Fiberglassrv.com log in (every time now) to which email account I've set up with this website.


Would love to see our login go back to our Username!

Not sure what your problem is. I just don't log out ( why bother? ) and if I did, I have checked the box that says "Remember Me" so it's no hassle logging in.

Hey Glen,
That's great when you're logged in to the same server. Servers don't remember you when you're no longer there to log in to that server.

As a full-timer, I log into different providers almost on a weekly basis, so I don't have the option of logging out. It automatically happens. I must log into a different server every time I move.

That's the economical way us full-timers must deal with technology and continually being on the road. If you can provide free, consistent access to the Internet for me (on a budgeted flip-phone plan) without my service being interrupted, I'm listening. My budget is $30. a month.

Set me up, and you are my man.
