I posted a message this afternoon and received some valuable replies. When I returned this evening to thank the posters, it appeared that I was logged in as I was recognized by the "Welcome line" at the top - "Hi Western Guy, welcome back!" - yet when I tried to post a thank you I was told I had to log in. So I went to the "login here" hot button that took me to the page showing all the available places to go. I clicked on the "Forum" button and was taken back to the page that told me I had to log in. After going around in circles a couple of times, I finally figured out that I actually had to "Logout" in order to login again. Can some one explain to me why this is necessary, or is there another route I have to follow.

Out of interest, which browser are you using? There's a Prevent Cross Site Cookies setting in Preferences for some, which could potentially block the forum cookie from being created when you log into the main site.

Thanks @WesternGuy, let us know if it happens again and we'll investigate further.
