You can't change the Guide information. The Guide is depreciated, no longer being maintained and is marked for deletion. You should create/update your comics' page on the CGWiki instead. And if you say you can "get into site settings", then that means that you can get into SiteAdmin.

Log into where? If you just need to get your comic up and running, then all you need is to be able to log into your comic account directly via an FTP program. There are several tutorials on how to do this in the CGWiki. You do not have to sign into SiteAdmin to get your comic running.

Thanks for letting me know - this would have been a good thing to know when I first started out.

I'm trying to get around the siteadmin by using an ftp server, so I tried signing into the ComicGenesis FTP server, http://siteadmin.comicgenesis.com:8080/ ... eb-ftp.cgi, and it continuously says "login fails, redirect to login page."

I used my forum login/password to get into the comicgenesis ftp thing. Is there another step that I'm missing?

It's FTP, not SiteAdmin.

You use your FTP username and password for all FTP access, not your forum details. Your FTP username will be the name of the comic (so if your comic is mycomic.comicgenesis.com then your FTP username would be mycomic). You can set the FTP password (if you don't already have one) via these instructions.

You use your forum details for the Forum, SiteAdmin and the CGWiki only.

So, I have the right account name, I've been signed up for two weeks, I've made 13 posts on here, and I still can't log into SiteAdmin. What gives?

@ Elnifi: First, what FTP means and how to use it quickly and easily. If you have any more problems with it, start a new thread here in the Help Center and we'll get you sorted out.

@ MSPcomix: I don't think that there is anything else that you can do on your end. It seems that you (along with a group of other people) are currently locked out of SiteAdmin. As stated earlier, you ought to still be able to get your comic up and running without accessing SiteAdmin since SiteAdmin does not have any functions that alter the look or function of your comic.

@ Kuakistar13: You got into SiteAdmin? That's interesting. Someone that joined on the 6th can get in, but someone who joined on the 8th cannot. Something must have happened on the seventh?

i'm testing out a theory and this seamed like the best place for it. is a reply considered a post, and do i need a post for my account to officially be considered as active?

You should now see on the left under your username (and in your profile) a little message that says "Posts: 1" (it'll go up to 2 if you reply to this).

Most forums (that I know of) do not make a distinction between an opening post (creating a thread) and replying to an existing thread (such as your post above). For the purposes of the CG system, you have now logged into the Forum at least once (which means that a comparator hash key was created that SiteAdmin can compare against) and you have made one post (so you should {if it was working properly} be able to get into SiteAdmin). However, if you wanted to get into the CGWiki then you would need to make an additional two posts to get into there (the CGwiki checks to make sure that your post count is three or higher before letting you in. The officially sanctioned "I'm spamming the forum just to get into the CGWiki" section is the "Can't log into CGWiki? Post here" thread).

If a user registers on the Forum and never logs in nor makes at least one post, then they normally wouldn't be able to get into SiteAdmin; but if they have done both, then they should be able to get in. It's the current SiteAdmin hiccup that is preventing new members from getting into SiteAdmin...

Edit: The information in this post is correct except for one thing: you need two (2) posts to get into SiteAdmin.

@ Dr. Neo Lao: When I said "I got in," I meant I got into the FTP server and uploaded some comics.

Still can't get into SiteAdmin

I had to recently reformat my hard drive and reinstall windows. before that I was logging in just fine into the Site Admin.

but after the complete overhaul of my system, firefox seems to have lost the information needed to log back in..

I've changed my password, checked capitalization and everything! I think my account has been up since late 2007 or something..... so I'm not really a 'new' person.

here's the error I'm receiving:

That's a different error to the one in the other thread.

It might be the way that you are logging into the Forum. Yes, the way you log into the Forum affects if you can get into SiteAdmin or not. Make sure you log into the forum with that first capital "B" and not with "bellycount.."

Look in the CGWiki on the tutorials page for help - there are a few pages there about the new SiteAdmin (can't post link - hobbled computer and it's the middle of a storm here in Perth... )

Hey,
I still can't login to edit my comic. I registered about a month ago. A week later I confirmed my email and made my forum account. I initially had trouble with non-capitilization, but an admin changed it for me. Still can't login at current though. Any help is appreciated.

It's alright, man. We all make mistakes! =)

But anyway... still no luck, I've tried everything from capitalization on the forums and all that fun stuff.. it just keeps sending me the same error over and over again.. even changed my password a few more times, but nothing...

I'm so far behind in my updating here that its actually hurting... =(

edit: Okay, I'm able to acess the ftp upload page via my old password. but I'd still like to be able to access site admin unless there's another way I can submit my pog when its ready... also I like the manual updating tool... =P

edit2: scratch that. I'm having trouble with the ftp too... logs me out of it everytime I try to upload...
