But now I am more confused.
It appears that I am logged in.
I see my little picture icon in the upper right hand corner.
I can go to the premium topics and browse them.
Are you saying that I need to log in agaiin?
After I do that, how do I get to the premium area?
PS: Just for the record, if I do go to the home page, and try to log in again. I can't.
That has been my experience every since returning to the site.
After trying about 50 times, it finally let me log in about a month ago.
Since then, it appears that it has given me a cookie or something that says I am still logged in (for forum purposes at least).
Since I reset my password a couple of months ago, I have only been able to log in from the home page twice, out of about a hundred attempts.
Although it probably sounds like I am a computer incompetent (and I might be), I am also a computer engineer and generally do not have this problem at any other site I belong to.
