I could not use the site as it appears to be able to view  you must create an account.

Yep. Agree with ya there, Toolman.

 

Even in Chrome 57, which I'm currently beta-testing, the instant the page loads it just 'greys-out', and refuses to allow access to anything. You must create an account to be able to view content. Period.

 

Maybe this is their solution to one of these 'security vulnerabilities' they mentioned? Either that, or Deimos already has an a/c with these guys, and never even considered it might cause viewing problems.....  :P

 

(Only joking, DC..!)

 

 

Mike.  :wink:

Well that's interesting guys... I did post from my work computer, which I have signed up for Beyond Trust Webinars before. I just checked the link here from my home PC and it works just fine.

Don't get me wrong, DC; I'd like to have a look at it, for sure.

 

But it kinda makes me wonder what folks' motives are when you have to sign up with them, before you can even see what it is that you're signing up for.....   :P

 

Just out of curiosity, do you use Chrome/Chromium or one of the Chromium-based browsers.....and do you have a Google a/c? If so, the sign-in credentials would get transferred from work to home via the a/c. Especially if you use a password manager.

 

Just a thought, that's all. Unless, of course, it's standard practice to sign-up for webinars before you have anything to actually do with them. I don't know; it's not an area I have any experience with.

 

 

Mike.  :wink:

Ah - I do use a Google A/C... but I didn't have to sign up with them to view webinars. You do have to put info in... sometimes they are annoying with calling cause they like to get businesses to buy stuff from them.

 

*Edit

 

Oh I get you all know - sorry.

 

Yes you do have to put your information in to get signed up for the webinar. I actually got a call from them today on my work line. They do use these webinars as sales tools... which is annoying. But a lot of the webinars do have good content. So its a trade off.

Curiously, now viewing from Iron 56 (32-bit) in X-Slacko 2.3.2, I can indeed view the page correctly (still got the sign-up crap; I see what you mean about using these as sales tools.....they want to know how many employees, etc, etc, and every detail of your business. They appear to assume you must be management to even be looking at this site..???) But, you must enter genuine, valid information.....and every single one of 10 different fields is a mandatory requirement.

 

Obviously to ensure they only get genuine enquiries..!!!

 

However, the page doesn't 'grey-out' in Iron. This is a real case of 'curiouser & curiouser' now, because I can view many problem sites in 32-bit Chromium-based browsers where their 64-bit counterparts give me trouble...

 

That's odd. 32-bit is supposed to be well past its use-by date!

 

Well, I can't do anything with it. Sorry about that, DC.

 

 

Mike.  :wink:
