Log in error since the new upgrade of SongSelect
Hello everyone! I hope someone can help me. I tried logging into SongSelect last night and received the following message:

END OF MESSAGE-----
I've spent all morning googling the error and can't find a solution. Mostly they talk about changing the viewstate etc. but I'm not the administrator of the web page. I also don't run on a Mac as they suggest as well. I'm simply trying to log into SongSelect as I've done the exact same way for the past two years.
Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions!
I had an error there a week or so ago. SongSelect would work on Safari (I do use a Mac), but not Firefox. (It looks to be a different error, but I don't know enough to tell if they are similar in origin.) Then the problem was fixed & it began working properly on Firefox. It is still working properly for me now, & when I first had the error I emailed CCLI about it. What browser(s) are you using or have you tried?
You might email them the error text as well, & let them know your OS/browser.
...didn't know they recommend Macs. Interesting considering only Windows users seem to be able to download charts (or lyrics... maybe both?)
Yep, this would definitely be a code/server-related issue on CCLI's end ... have you tried lately?
Problem fixed - Kind of
Hi guys, thanks for the replies. I finally tried downloading another server and that worked. I was using Explorer. I've never had trouble before. It was kind of a blessing in disguise......I like the new server better and it's faster! Ha Ha Explorer!!
