The forum keeps logging me out every time I go back to the main "Fab Forum" page.

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

I just had that same issue along with the issue of it saying stuff is new when it is not.

I have been having the same problem for days, so glad it isn't just me!

Here is what I think is happening, for some reason there is a ridiculous caching problem on the site, and that nearly every time you go to a page, you are seeing an earlier cached version of the page.

The site hasn't actually logged you out - even though it may appear so. If you reload the page, it will show you the most recent version of the page and you will show as logged in.

There are dreadful time-lags with pages at the moment, logged in or out, and I am needing to load most pages at least twice. Whatever the cache-lag is meant to be, it's going seriously wrong at the moment.

Two examples from the last couple of days.

I was looking for a thread that had dropped off the main forum page. I knew it was in Yesterday and Today, so went into that sub-forum menu. Looking at it, there was a thread that told me I had last posted on it 34 minutes previously. I knew that was wrong so refreshed the page. I was still the last person to have posted in that thread, but now it was 21 hours ago.

An another occasion, I entered a new thread (only two pages) that had a recent post. I went to the page, it left me sitting at the top of the page, and when I scrolled down, I found the recent post was missing, and so reloaded the page, which gave me the missing post. I realised it was part of an exchange that had started on page one. I loaded page one to read through the beginning of the exchange. I scrolled down to the bottom of the page to find the beginning of the exchange, and found it had loaded a version of page one when there wasn't a page two, and the last few posts of the page were missing, so had to reload the page again.

I don't know how it is for other people, but for me the site is running increasingly slower, and having to load most pages twice is becoming annoying.
