Strange, But I Cannot Log Out
Posted by fuzznoggin on Friday, April 22, 2022 8:36 AM

I've seen folks with login issues, but I cannot log out.  I click LOGOUT, clear the cache&history, close the browser, and when I go back to FSModeler I'm still logged in.  Scratching my head on this one.   Any suggestions?     And this bottom pop up ad on here is driving me nuts too.  LoL

The log in/log out scenario has been one of the bugbears we've been trying to cage. It has been particularly ellusive, because we'll seem to get it locked down, and then it'll rear it's head again. All I can tell you right now is that is has to do with the interface between the main website and the community software. 

As for the ad at the bottom of the screen, there have been many posts about how to deal with the ads on the website. As they are a revenue component for FSM, all I can say is they help keep the lights on.

Thank you Tim.   I've narrowed it down to "Cookies".  I disabled cookies and can log out.....but can't log back in unless I enable cookies.  No biggie.   As for the ads, my Safari browser ad block doesn't disable them.  I can appreciate the "free site" and needing ads to keep the lights on.  But, this bottom ad has a tendency to enlarge itself covering forum content which is annoying to a degree.

Don't know if this will help you or not. I had the same problem with the ads. Got the free "Ad Blocker" and all the ads went away. Have not had any ads since.

I NEVER logout because I fear that I will not be able to login.
