Stroke survivor, I am with you regarding being logged in, but not smileys!
As soon as I go to the forum I find that I am logged in! I can log out OK and go to other sites then return to the forum and find that I am logged in again! I do not save passwords and have used tools to delete any possible saved items, the forum is the only site where this is occuring and has only started in the last few days! I can even turn off and restart my confuser (thats what I call it) and I still find I am logged in!
Looking at who is actually logged in shows some members are on for many hours!
When I have looked at different posts today the smileys have only been in code but on Stroke Survivors previous reply they are visable!
