The link in the navbar at the very top of every page should work fine - it's the top right one when you're logged in, next to chat.
The gallery link wasn't working, and the navbar there was just a duplicate of the top one so that has now been tidied up and brought in line with the rest of the site. If there are any other logout links that don't work, please pm me or let me know here and I'll fix them up as soon as possible.
I get it sometimes.. the logging-out probs , that is.. (*))
When I open up next time....it appears that I'm still online bfore I've entered my details.... otherwise I find the machinery on the site "fair dinkum".
If I log off by first selecting 'Main Page' and then 'Log Out' on the navbar I get a pop-up asking if I want to log off (Y/N). Selecting 'Yes' produces an error message and confirming that I do want to log off in response to that message then results in a request to identify the page to which I want to return at log on. Then everything logs off OK and all the posts that have been viewed do not reappear when I log back on, only the unread posts are listed.
Using the same log off procedure from any page other than the Main Page does not achieve the same end results; either I remain logged in, or I am logged out but on re-entry, when I select 'View New Posts', I am presented with a list of all posts received since I last logged off from the 'Main Page'. That is, even those posts that have already been viewed are presented in bold type as if they were unread.
maybe i am wrong but i never log off this site..usually go some where else or switch off ? when i have logged of by mistake i have had to request my pass word to get back again???? Dumb or what? (Night)
You got it, Jim.
All I do is put a shortcut to the Main Page on my taskbar.
When I want Ships Nostalgia, I click it and I'm right there with no sign in.
Then I'm through, I click the "x" on the top right corner to quit or Google from the taskbar to get to another site.
No fuss, no muss, no bother.
I follow BC's procedure & have never had any trouble.Seem to remember when I first joined SN there was some discussion on this subject & it was pointed out that not logging out saved the hastle of getting back in which saves a lot of time when one extensively uses site. Kiwi
