First of all: I had to register a new user account in order to post this topic.
I am used to authenticate to this forum via my GitHub account. This was working for years and stopped approx. last week.
When I try to login via GitHub the forum responds
“[…] there was an error authorizing your account. Perhaps you did not approve authorization?”
So I did return to GitHub and checked “Authorized OAuth Apps” and “Discourse” is listed as an authorized app.
I did afterwards revoke authorization for “Discourse” and authorized it again on Github via login to this forum. But it didn’t work out. Same issue.
To be able to report this problem here I registered a new forum account (native Discourse). During the account provisioning a similar issue turned up:
I received the “[openHAB] Confirm your new account…” email. I clicked on the included link to confirm and were forwarded to a page saying something like “Problem with authorization” (sorry no screenshot or exact wording).
So, it seems there are some issues with user login and new user registration with this Discourse instance.
Any suggestions or help?
