Signing In Always Defaults to Main Page Now

#1 Postby veggieprincess » Fri Apr 09, 2010 3:42 pm

The board used to be set up where you're browsing without sigingin in... you click on a link you want to respond to, it sends you to the sign in page, you sign in and you're right where you were at when browsing.

Now it always defaults you back to the main page. A real nuisance if you found an old thread you want to respond to and have to go dig it up again once your signed in.

This seems like an easy fix, and again... the board never used to default you back to the main page every time you signed in. Would love if that got fixed.

On a related note, when I go to veganbodybuilding.com at work there are no links to the forum on the front page.

Do you see the Front Page button when at home?

Have you tried what Robert suggested? I don't ever have to log in when going through threads or searching and I haven't had other members mention that they are experiencing this.

Yes.

I found the cause, the links are part of an image, I have adblock and that image made its way into the filter. I made an exception for that image, problem solved.

Yes There is something wrong.
You go to VBB you start reading.
When you find a thread that you want to post a reply to, you are sent to the sign in page.
After signing in you are not sent back to the page you wanted to post on.
So now you have to go back to the index and search again for the page you wanted to post on.
That is if you remembered where you were when you came across that thread.
It seems so 20th century.
This feature use to work right before the change.

For those that are running into a sign in again issue, please clear out all your cookies and log in. When you log in, make sure you choose the box that says "Log me on automatically each visit"

That's the point, I don't want to log in automatically on any account on my computer. Nor when I'm surfing and decide to go to VBB, do I want to log in unless I see something that I want to reply to. The code just need to be fixed as to redirecting back to the same page, after signing in.
Not complaining just trying to make my point.

Fair enough. Can someone who's having the issue try the following:

1. Log out
2. clear out all cookies and browser cache.
3. Close the browser
4. Open the browser
5. Try logging in

Ah.. now I've tested it and see it. I'll have to let the board developers know as this is something they would have changed.
