Because all the sudden, I can't get logged in.

I get the login box and it lets me input my username and password into the fields, but when I click the login button, it's like it just doesn't take. I get a visual cue – the outline of the button changes color – but after that, the phone browser treats it like a piece of text: tries to select it for copying and so on.

I tried doing the least drastic form of cache clearing, and that made no difference. I'm wondering whether AO3 changed something underlying the login.

Does a five-year-old Blackberry count as a Smartphone? I never know how to answer these things. I can try logging out & back into my account using it, if that would help.

I don't want you to get stuck logged out if it doesn't work!

I logged out and back in and it didn't give me any trouble. Hmm.

Did the scorched-earth cache clear and got in eventually. Hmmm.

I haven't had trouble with AO3 on my smartphone recently (but I also haven't logged out in a while, so it could be just an old cookie remaining effective for the time being).... but I DID have that exact problem with a different website! Clicked on a button, got the 'visual feedback', and it did nothing. :| Makes me wonder if it's more of a website coding issue and less of a smartphone thing.

Hmmm ... I'm trying to log into DW to see whether that works. LJ worked, but they have an actual mobile version wth a very simplified login screen. But DW is taking ages to load.

I ended up doing the scorched-earth variety cache clear. DW kept prompting me over and over, but I eventually got in. AO3 acted like nothing was going to happen, so I left it alone for a few minutes, and when I got back I was logged in. Weird. Messed-up cache on the login box code, I guess!
