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.

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

Thanks, JaneFairfax!

I did exactly as you said and it worked!

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 !)

Thanks ... yeah it is rather odd.

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

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.

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 ... ?

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

School is practice for the future. Practice makes perfect. But - nobody's perfect, so why practice?

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