"Unknown error" when logging into Discourse - enable cookies

(Thanks @sam and @eviltrout for helping me out on Twitter - you were a really great help!)

Before logging in to any Discourse instance, make sure that the use of browser cookies is enabled for that site or all sites - that was my issue, and thus resolved the issues on Discourse Meta, KC, my school’s portal, and a whole lot more sites.

So, in other words…

Huh wow cookies disabled, we don’t see that very often. Honestly that is not even in my list of things to check except I do tell people to use a stock browser they do not normally use when troubleshooting to rule out browser specific customizations.

I was diagnosing the issue with Chrome for iOS (which worked fine everywhere), and then I guess turning cookies back on worked again :joy:
