As an example, if I click on this link: http://community.tableausoftware.com/ideas/2840
the Idea is opened in a new tab, but I will not be logged in at the target page.
I'm using IE11, so I'd say its safe to say its not a browser-specific issue.
Also, if I choose to "login" at that point, I am taken to the Community "Welcome" page, and not the link I wanted to go to in the first place. Also super annoying.
Thank you both for reporting this. I'm investigating now.
Mark Fraser when you're clicking between yourself and Community or Forum & Community are you opening new tabs? Or staying in the same one?
Matt Lutton, I was able to recreate when going to the idea link you provided, but not when going to Ideas or TabWiki.
Just an FYI, as to what the maintenance was - our URL will be changing from community.tableausoftware.com to community.tableau.com
I'm going to move this thread to Getting Started in the Forums
And will update, as I learn more. Thank you for your patience and sorry for the inconveniences!
Yes, I meant links specific to those areas--not those specific links. If that makes sense. But any link on TabWiki, such as:
Was doing the same thing for me (although this time it seemed to work... maybe you're fixing it as I type this?)
I just received an update - the redirect from our side needs to be pushed out and this should be resolved by this afternoon. If you change the links from community.tableausoftware.com to just community.tableau.com, you should still be logged in.
Again, sorry for the inconvenience!
This should now be resolved. Please let me know if you are still experiencing issues!
