Grand Central - funky login *solved*

Postby gizmo78 » Mon Aug 25, 2008 10:28 pm

ok, I was just about to post about how LastPass does not work with the funky way GrandCentral handles logins when I found a work-around.

Instead of going to http://www.grandcentral.com instead go to http://www.grandcentral.com/account -- at the 2nd URL is a traditional login that LastPass handles just fine!

Larry -- You might also be able to use 'Refresh Sites' on the page after the login overlay is displaying -- let us know if it works.

We've been tempted to check the page after page load again but can't see slowing down your PC -- maybe we'll add it as a default-off option.

Nope…refresh sites does not work for it. GC is one of the stranger logins I have seen…when you select login an OSX style sheet scrolls down from the top of the page. It's slick, but it breaks the internet. I would not program for it…I don't remember seeing a similar login screen on any other site.

Not sure if it is programatically the same, but another site with a similar type of issue is gliffy.com (free online flowchart program).

Both grandcentral.com and gliffy.com use Macromedia Flash for their login boxes
