Forum Suggestions & User Assistance - This may sound stupid, but I can't log out
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
Don't know if it's just my machine here at the office being wierd and holding on to cookies, but when I attempt to log out, then refresh the page to go back to the main page, I'm still logged in. After I get the pop-up confirming that I want to log out, I get the confirmation screen that shows I'm logged out (there is the log-in UserName/Password boxes at the top left) but after I click on any link I'm back to being logged in. I've tried closer the browser and opening it again too.
Why might you ask am I trying to log out? Well, I typically don't since I'm not on a shared computer, but I wanted to provide someone with the direct link to where to go to get information on becoming a paying member. :)
Manually, yes, I can go clear the cookie. However there are a large number of members who probably don't know where cookies are saved or how to clear them through their browser or manually. Just tried it on my computer at home, doesn't work here either.

Odd, I can log out and log in just fine. Anyone else having this problem?
cuda, are you using any time of ad blocking software that could be changing the cookes? What about 3rd party software that remembers passwords?
I've got google task bar installed which blocks popups, but I seem to be able to maintain cookies just fine. You probably are right though about something in my browser or software I'm running causing the problems. In any case, finally got logged out and got the link to the page I needed. Thanks for the assistance Joe & Stacy.
