I'm on this thread because "Essential Links" at the top said this is where to bring "bugs, problems, suggestions" and there is no other thread that seemed appropriate.
For a few days now I keep having the experience of trying to post a message and being sent to the log-in page instead, although my name is on the list at the top as being logged in. This happens even if I log in again, and even if I log in many times. I've lost some posts because of it but then I learned to copy and save them. Sometimes if I log in and log out a number of times a post will go through but not always. Sometimes if I reboot the computer the problem may go away but not always. Eventually something resets and I can post again but I don't know what happened to make that possible.
Sometimes I have more than one page of EvC open when I'm looking up old posts, and sometimes one is logged in and the other isn't so I've thought that could have caused the problem, but the problem persists even when only one page is open.
This time I tried almost a dozen times doing this and that until I could finally post without being redirected to the log in page, and as I said, I have no idea what action or combination of actions finally cleared up the problem.
Now I'm copying this message and pasting it in my email in case I lose it.
Thank you. I've been having the trouble again but I think I've learned how to avoid it: I have to check every time I want to post a message that my name is on the roster above and it gives the "Logout" message rather than "Login" after my name at the very top where it says "Welcome, Member." If those two things are there I don't have a problem though I'm still copying and pasting my messages just in case.
Oh and I think it may be MOST important never to just close the page without logging out.
I don't want to ask you to post complicated instructions if I end up not using them, but I would like to be able to get rid of just the cookies for EvC because I remember big headaches when I delete all cookies. But as long as I've learned to skirt the problem it may not be necessary anyway.
