I posted in a thread, then I clicked the banner at the top of the page linking to daily verses from Papa Zoom. When that page opened I was logged out. I clicked Log-In thinking it would correct itself and got a message that said, OOPS, looks like we've ran into a security error. Click back, refresh, and try again. I did that, going back to the page I had been on, refreshed, nothing happened. I tried to log in and got the same security error message. Ultimately, I had to go all the way back to Home link, refresh there, click Community Forums link, and when that page opened there I was logged in .

That's weird. I clicked on the link just now and it was fine.

When you visit the link is there a www in the URL?

Sounds like something glitches with your cookies. If it happens again, log out, clear your cookies and history and give it another shot.

I did that. I cleared my whole history and still had to go back to the home page and click the community forum link to get back to the forum where I was still logged on. The cookies aren't my machines responsibility they're the sites. Somewhere there's a glitch. I shouldn't be logged off after posting in a thread and even when clearing history that includes cookies, am still logged off until I go to the home page and click forums again and there I am still logged on.
Clearing the history should have logged me off as a matter of course but it didn't.

I have had this same issue reported by another member. It occurs when they click on a link from What's New, and when they click on a link from the scrolling notification bar.
Are you experiencing it from other links? If so, please let me know the specific link.

It is on my list to research this with xenforo and with xenfocus to see if its a known bug.

This behavior is being reported by others in the xenforo community. Most are reporting that this is occurring in Firefox.
What browser are you using?

Before I logged on today the banner at the top of the page welcomed me as a guest. And then told me if I hadn't yet done so I should update my gender and something else I can't recall, on my profile page. I don't have a profile page as a guest.

Thanks for that. I've changed the criteria where only users who are logged in will see that notice.
Thanks.
