Is there a problem with the PGL?

#1SocranPosted 10/7/2012 10:34:06 PM
Whenever I try logging into the Global Link, the login box disappears, but nothing else changes. I figured it might've just been a browser issue, but the same thing happened in all my browsers. I also tried putting in the wrong password, and got an error message before being given the login box again, so I know that's not the issue... But a search on "PGL" and "Global Link" didn't show anyone else having issues. So is this only a problem on my end, or are people just not talking about it?

Kicked off the first page, bump time.

One more bump... Can anyone at least say whether it's working for them or not?

Works fine for me. Both the BW and BW2 versions.

Damn, so this is genuinely a problem on my end? I wonder why the same issue crops up on multiple browsers, though... Does anyone know what programs or plugins the site uses, specifically for that sidebar login thing?

Do you use any extensions like noscript or notscript (for chrome)? If so you may have to "Allow" the pages to use their scripts.

I don't use anything like that, at least not on purpose. I doubt something like that would come preloaded with the browser, especially not multiple browsers, and if it did more people would be coming forward with the same issue.

I was just being thorough. I am able to log in just fine. Are you able to log in to your trainers club account from Pokemon.com? I know it doesn't log you in to the global link from there but, if you are able to log in from there your account should be fine.

Yeah, I understand, I was just being thorough in my answer.

As for logging in elsewhere, it seems to be more of a problem with the site functionality than the account, but... Oh... Well that's interesting. I tried logging in from the main site, and got a white screen with this plaintext message.

"CAS is Unavailable
A general exception occurred while trying to access CAS.
Please notify your system administrator."

(I imagine that the reason the other one didn't get to this point is because it was trying to log in as a secondary function of the page, rather than opening a page purely for log-in purposes.)

So, uh... No clue what that means. CAS?

This page describes what CAS is:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Central_Authentication_Service

In short CAS is a specialised server that handles mass login for web applications (such as the PGL)

Basically, your computer and the CAS server are failing to communicate.

The problem could be on either end unfortunately.
