You would have to sign in to post, of course, but your browser should, when prompted,  remember your username and password so it's all there ready for you every time you visit the site and you should only have to click on the LogIn button  >thumbsup<

I have not had the e-mail accepting me.
I have not had to sign in, in fact on my pc there wasn't a 'sign in' thingy.
This is just to see if I'm posting.

Depending on the type of email account you are using the email accepting your membership and ones notifiying you of PMs can end up in your Junk Mail folder, so please check that folder.

It sound like your computer and the server automtically logged you in. I If you look at the list across the top of the page do you see the words Log Out next to the word members?

It is good to see you posting  :-)

Hi SunshineMeadows

Yes, I do have the Log Out. but do not have the log in.
Also, I do not have a junk mail folder.

Maybe my pc is getting old (like me) but it works well usually.

Cindy,

As long as you remember your log in details I think it would be worth you clicking on the Log Out option and logging out, because you with then get the Log In option loading on screen. Then you can log in again so youu can see how that works.

I suspect the reason for automatically logging in is that when you set up your account you accepted the default 'forever' setting so it logs you in each time without you having to do so.

I can't see a way of changing this directly without deliberately logging out. This may then trigger a login in which the option should appear. Not certain as I have not tried this.
