    A friend wants to log-in from my computer, but I seem to be automatically signed in whenever I come onto the site, and when I try and log-out it gives an error message!! Can anyone tell me how I can log-out successfully from this site???

    Cheers, Rob

    Clear your cookies - it seems to be the only way!

    what style are you using? I have had no problems using the "logout" link from the clean style.

    There may be an issue with logout at the moment - I am having the code checked. There is a way though to log out and that is to go to the forum home page (not the portal page) and select log out from there. That should do it.
  6. If you click on the "home" link and then on the "forum link", you will then see in the top right hand corner which says "log out" (and then your name next to it) then it will say your "cookies are cleared", then click on "return to page previously viewing" and any one can then log in.

    They're tasty biscuit things ;)

    Seriously, they are what your computer uses to remember who you are when you log into a website. They do a lot more than that too, but that is it in a nutshell!

    To clear them, go to Internet Options (if you use Internet Explorer) which is in the Tools Menu. You will see a button there called "Clear Cookies". That should do it.

    Different browsers have a similar option, but in different places depending what browser it is!

    Hope that helps....
