I cannot log out, why???

Software is a wonderful thing; Especially javascript & the like...

I notice I am now unable to log out on a Windows 98 box. It has been a problem in the past with a message to the effect, "Unable to log you out. Click here to [try it a different way]". Now, it just does not log me out period.

It would be nice to log out so that other people with access to the same machines I do do not come in behind me and post things like:

Would you mind looking at the log outs?

Thanks,
Tom

Tom,

I understand the request I have the same issue when I logout on one of my systems. I get the same error in XP, 98 and on Windows ME (don't go there, I know )

I know that Andy is aware of it. I do not know if this is a common issue or not from a standpoint of user names, I use the same one on multiple forums and even ebay. I wonder if that could be part of the problem??

Anyone else having trouble?

AHHHH...Yes.. I know that weird humor.. I apologise for my 15 year old son. Perhaps he was made to spend too much time on stripping out our airstream this summer, while I was in Mexico breathing fresh air. I got back 2 days ago. I'll talk to him this afternoon. Imagine LIVING with such a fertile imagination. But he did work very hard. I just don't know how he got on the airstream site.
I apologise again, silver suz

Do you have the check box marked remember me when you login? Or does opening the site just log you in? If I login on a computer that is not mine, I am sure to uncheck the box, then no cookies get place on the machine.

The are other forums than this one? What's an ebay?

Seriously, I only use tcwilliams here. I use my real name, Horace McGreevy, in other venues , and my wife buys everthing on Ebay. Don't remember her handle.

Talking

If you go to TOOLS then INTERNET OPTIONS in Internet Explorer, and delete your cache files, history, and cookies, then when you go back to the site, there will not be a cookie or file on your computer telling the site to keep you logged in.
And, unless you check the little box to keep you logged in on this machine, then you will need to log in everytime and log out every time.
Or buy the kid his own computer and keep him from downloading viruses onto yours..hehee

You're right. But I'd prefer it to be a bit more convenient for a routine basis.

If nothing else, my wife would kill me if I obliterated some of her cookies!

The "hard" way would be to delete all the cookies from the machine you are working with. This also assumes you are on the machine as an administrator, but it could be done. If it was worth the trouble.

Take a look around the Internet for a program called "CookieWall" This program acts like a firewall to protect you from unwanted cookies. It is a free program from AnalogX. Once you have it installed then you can delete all active cookies from your system.

Note: You will need to log on each time you come to this site since you will be eliminating the cookie.

If you set it to prompt each time the program receives a cookie then you can not only know that the site is trying to put a cookie on your system, but you can smash it right then and there. There are a lot of sites that won't allow you to view unless you receive their cookies. This is BS! With CookieWall they will allow you to go and look it over since their precious cookie has been received, but Cooliewall allowed you to delete it. Hehe to them.

I have run this program for a little while and it is a great tool.

ditto

I have noticed also that I cannot log out or off these forums.

Apparently (from the above replies) this is my problem not the forum's doing. Some how I doubt that. I think that anyone (i.e. Airstream Forums) who goes to so much trouble to invite someone in (to their abode) should make it a high priority that those visitors (members) can leave at their leisure.
I do not want to clear my computer of all cookies at this time, I am aware of that option, and assume that it might work.

FWIW I used to log out regularly with no problems. Then I just never logged out for a month or so. Is it possible that staying logged on for a long time in some way leads to the "can't log out" problem?

I have deducted that Organic Hosting is quite computer savvy and therefore I feel confident that he can figure this thing out, I just hope he will find the time soon.

Here are the two seperate and ineffective error messages, NOT my browser messages but messages of this forums software. My OS=WXP, Browser=IE.

vBulletin Message

If I log off the forums, visit the photos section, then return to the forums, I appear as a logged in user in the forums.

All in all, I'm glad I'm not the only one who has unexpected results with their code
