Unable to POST

Everytime I go to a different place on the website, it logs me out.
I am then unable to post anything.  It says I must be signed in, but on the top, it says that I AM signed in....
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks

Hello Denise,

That does sound like a strange problem. Which browser do you use?  How did you manage to post your message eventually?

It is probably a question of enabling cookies: when you are not allowing cookies the site cannot store its login information on your pc, so everytime a new page is loaded it needs a new login.
Never look back, unless it's time to go home.

So I need to enable cookies??
Even now, I just signed in and it has me as a GUEST
Other times I log in and it doesn't accept the log in.

Hi,
Not sure but you might need to clear your cookies. Don't know if that will help but sometimes deleting all cookies fixes that type of problem. You'll have to log in again on all sites that use cookies.

Cookies are only required if you would like your computer (= stored cookie) to remember your log in details for this website. In other words: You should be able to log in without cookies. But the problem you describe does indeed sound like a cookie problem. Like Dirk en Es said, try enabling cookies and see what happens. Should this work for you, please let me know (I would be really puzzled!).
