Woah! I was on a PC (Win 11) using Edge, and when I looked at a news story (Arrested at Crash Scene), a box emerged at the top of the screen after a minute or so saying I had to sign in to use the site.

Has anyone else experienced this? (No I did not grab a screen shot)

I figured out what that problem was and had it fixed at around 10am this morning. Thanks for letting us know.

Thanks! I was going to go ‘off’ on Castanet if a paywall were going up. Y’all are spared my wrath (for now). [icon_lol2.gif] :130:

The last few days I have encountered an error message after clicking on the link for certain stories.

I've never had this happen before thus am assuming it's something to do with Castanet.

I am able to get to the link if I close the browser and start over, but that's a pain when it's not been necessary before.

I got this latest one after clicking on the story about the guy living in his RV title is... "As more unhoused turn to living in RVs, call comes to allow use of parking lots"

Just retried it and got same message.

Just clicked on that story and it opened fine.

Opened for me just fine too now. Maybe Troy fixed it. :135:

For what it's worth I'm using Chrome browser, and I haven't closed and reopened to get in this time.

I suggest checking for updates to the web browser you're using.

Whenever I've seen problems like that, it's usually fixed by updating to the latest version.
