    There's still a logout link on the far right at the top for me. It's on the dark blue bar.

    In firefox 2.0011 the page seems to load but no log out in the far right
    in opera9 the page is messed up and no logout
    in seamonkey the page loads and I get the logout button in the far right but I have to log in to read this post as otherwise it is covered with ads and I can not read it.

    Bucky, the post being covered with ads is being fixed. I'm using firefox 2.0011 too and I can still se the log out in the far right. We're also working on fixing the website to work fine with opera. Can you post some screenshots?

    Thanks...your consideration and extra work are appreciated..I sometimes forget I am playing with garbage (computers)...but linux works so well on these old things...I currently have two p3 6xx running on 800x600 so that accounts for some of my issue...but
    I can load the forum on opera today and it looks good..still no logout

    I did boot the 1024 and I get a LOG and can click to logout

    here are the shots of 800 and 1024

    will clear this link later if thats ok...as I want to use the space for something else

    Perhaps the solution to the logout button is to exchange " advanced " with " logout"...this would allow folks with some 800x600 units to logout

    So does it matter that I can not log out?..I am just closeing the browser or page. or should I just not login at 800x600...which means not on these machines which I often need help with?

    I never Log out, I usually just close my Browser or Surf to a different page. Unless you have other People that use your machine, it's no big deal.
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.
