I can't log out!
« on: January 09, 2006, 10:26:29 pm »
I have clicked the "Logout" button a gazillion times, and it won't log me out! Is there some other button I'm missing?

Restart your computer and try again, that should work. Otherwise you can delete the cookie for this site and that will do it.

My solution: don't log out. I never log out. I just close the window and slowly drift off the list. If you don't do anything on the forum for 15 minutes, then you'll drift off and you won't be logged in anymore. And when I come here again I have it to log me in again automatically. So I never use any do any "logging."

Yeah, that's what I do, but if I want to be a guest, namely so I can look at people's profiles without looking suspicious, I need to be able to log out.

My problem is that every time I leave the site, it logs me out when I have it set to "Forever."

There is balance in the universe.

When as a guest, try to reply to a topic, and it will give you a screen about how many minutes you want to stay logged in for. Click forever, or put in some insanely high number.

On the laptop, I can stay logged in forever. However, on my desktop, it logs me off every time (after the 15 mins) even though I have selected forever. Go figure ~  :-\

I changed some settings, give it a try now (but make sure that you restart your computer first and then try it).

I wondered what the "admin help pages" were. Woo for "Who's Online". I'll try it in a second.

I had to delete all my cookies, but it worked. Now I can log on/off!

Yeah, I think there's something wrong with my cookies. I log on and set thatbar to 'forever' but when I exit the site and come back, I'm always logged off. This is the same for any other site. My cookies aren't being deleted, they're still in the folder, just not being read.

edit: Already tried restarting my computer, haven't tried deleting cookies yet, will now...
edit2: Yay it worked!  ;D

And this is a bad thing?

Exactly my thought.
