Logging out

MathsIsFun,
I am unable to log out of the forum.
I tried to logout from both the left and right ends several times,
I am not being logged out.
Please try to fix this problem.

Re: Logging out

Delete your cookie. That should solve the problem if nothing else does.

Thanks, JaneFairfax!
I did exactly as you said and it worked!

Re: Logging out

Today, I was unable to logout until I deleted my cookies.  I don't recall  having this trouble before.
No big deal, just a heads-up for MathIsFun.

(BTW, thanks for the great forum !)

Re: Logging out

Thanks ... yeah it is rather odd.

But I am hoping to upgrade the forum in the next few weeks, so that should solve it.

Re: Logging out

I'd like to suggest you bump this up to a higher priority.
Reason number two affects me personally, but numbers 1 and 3 should probably be considered.
1)  It is potentially a security issue for kids who use this site at school (it seems the login never times-out.)
2)  I decided I would just stay logged in all the time.  But to see a list of new threads, I need to mess with the cookies, which is getting annoying.
3) This is a public relations issue -- it detracts from the overall classiness and usability of the site.

Re: Logging out

I will have a look and see if I can figure out what is going on, but in the meantime:

2) Can't you click on "New Posts" above ... ?

Re: Logging out

The same thing's happening here - but it's not a problem at all. :]

Re: Logging out

Thanks, Rora. I am waiting anxiously for the new version ... which always seems to be just a few weeks away.
