Log in for the debate forum

If you already have an account, you can log in to the debate forums by clicking the link "log in" in the top right corner. If you do not have an account, please scroll down to how you create an account. If you have forgotten your password, scroll down to how to retrieve a new password.

The log in-window will present you with to options to log in: a) solely in the debate forum or b) via Digitalarkivet (the Digital Archives). If you choose a) you will only have an account in the debate forum and will not be logged in on the site of the Digital Archives. (But you can change this preference later.) If you choose b) which we recommend, you are creating an account you can also use on the site of the Digital Archives. You will only have one account for both the forum and the site.

  • If you choose a), then log in with your registered e-mail address and the password you created. Check "Remember me" so you do not have to log in each time.
  • If you choose b), then you will be presented with a similar form where you must write the registered e-mail address and the password you created. But you will also be asked a question whether you want to join the existing account with this one. You will only be asked this question once. Confirm by entering the password you created for your account. You might also be asked to log in to the Digital Archives as well. Please do so. It might seem like you are getting the same question twice, but it is different. 

Forgot your password?

If you have forgotten the password you have created for your account, you can retrieve a new one easily. It is the same procedure whether you are in the discussion forum or on the Digital Archives site, but it will look slightly different.

In the discussion forum you find the "Forgot password?"-link in the window which opens once you click the Log in-link in the top right corner. Follow the instructions and be careful to write the e-mail address you have registered in the discussion forum. You will recieve an e-mail to comlete the retrieval, so be sure to have your inbox available.

Become a member of the debate forum

You can read and follow the discussions without an account, but if you want to post an entry, start a topic, send a message to the other members, you will have to have an account. You start an account by clicking the "Become a member" in the top right corner.

  • Fill in the registration form and be sure to use your full name.
    (If the name already exists, you must alter it slightly, for instance by adding underscore between given and last name, or by setting your last name first.)

Register on the Digital Archives site

You can search and browse the site of the Digital Archives freely, without any registration. But if you want to make pdf's of the scanned material or send messages for possible errors in the transcribed material, you will have to have an account.

  • Start by clicking the icon of a person at the top right, and there you select "Create an account?"
  • Fill in the registration form and be sure to use your full name. (If the name already exists, you must alter it slightly, for instance by adding underscore between given and last name, or by setting your last name first.)
