Slingers Guide
Jun 30th, 2018 at 11:55pm
 
Is it just me or does the slingers guide section appear and disappear from the main page all the time?  Most of the time I donít see it unless I use the search bar, but once in a while it will magically reappear.

Thatís the weird part... I am logged in, but the main page says Iím not.† I try to log in from there and it says I am already logged in, and if I click on a visible topic it shows my username. I guess itís something weird with my browser.

if your ip address changes then you need to do the log in and out thing.
Most people have dynamic ip addresses, so every time you reboot your router your ip address changes.

As I'm at the end of the local telephone exchange I re-boot my router quite a bit.

I find when I come onto the forum I'm logged out, I click the home button and I'm magically logged in. Same with my on my phone. I haven't typed in my password since... possibly the first time I logged in.

Ok itís not just me Smiley
It really only affects the one topic because of the privacy settings but itís a very strange quirk.

I just figured out that if I click on the breadcrumb links it says I am logged in but if I go to the home page by clicking Lariat Man, it doesnít... interesting.

ip address changes.
Some modern routers routinely reboot to keep you at the top of the pile. So even though you might not be aware of it, your ip address could be changing regularly.

The forum software looks more at ip addresses than user names for account security.
