I can't log out.
Help! I can't log out! I just get a message that says all the cookies have been cleared when I try and log out.

Cookies are how your internet browser tracks what you have been doing and if you are logged in to different sites. As far as I know, when you log in you get cookies in your browser, then when you log out your cookies are erased.

I tried to log out yesterday too and got the same message.

I was logging out, b/c its still not savings which threads I've viewed and thought logging out and logging in would 'fix' that.

I know what cookies are. I am still logged in after I get that message!

Thanks for the help though!

I figured it out.

I had to go and manually clear the cookie from his computer in order to log out and log back in. My boyfriend wanted to register for the forum (to be able to ask questions about knitting) and we couldn't get me logged out on his computer. He is a very new knitter.

Interesting. I just tried logging out and in again and had no problem. I tried going back in to the forums and it gave me the message it gives to not-logged-in people. Meh...

Good for your boyfriend though

I was going to ask why you'd even want to log out, but now I know. That's so cool!!

I think it would work if you clicked Log Out, click OK, then go and manually remove the cookie for Knittinghelp.com, then log out again.

I never log out, I just close the window and shot off my modem. Should I be logging out?
