    Thank you very much for your explanation. However, I am afraid I have to bother you again.

    I'd like to make sure that I am correct this time. However, I can't find this 'Standard forum page'. Is it on-site English Forum in the middle of the columns? Could you please kindly tell me the steps of doing it?

    To save your time I am listing the steps ( I think some of them are correct) I used to take to post my questions so you can delete or add as it is needed.
    1. Click on Forum in the first line between Memembers and About.
    2. ESL Forum Home.
    3. Log in.
    4. Click Ask a Teacher on the left under Menu.
    5. Submit

    I am looking forward to hearing from you.

    Thank you in advance.

    Therein lies the problem.

    Previously, the Ask a Teacher link on the left hand menu used a javascript link to pop up a box where you could enter your question. This works well on other areas of the site, but in the forum it would mean that your login information would be ignored. The popup box used throughout the site is designed for new users.

    Within the forum, I've now made the Ask a Teacher link go to a standard forum page, so this problem should not happen again.

    You're a gem, Red. Or perhaps a ruby, a Red gem.

It's simply a session timeout condition.I don't know what scripting Red is using but I know that when user don't request a new page after a specific minutes ASP cancel the session and release all or some of the resources so it can be assign to next login user.Another timeout is script timeout and it is in seconds whereas session timeout is in minutes and it is 20 minutes by default. :mad:
    I haven't experienced a time out in months. Often I get called away from the computer when I am in the middle of a lengthy response. When I get back, everything is still as it was. :D

    Dear Red5,
    I posted questions following the precedure I listed yesterday just now. Unfortunately it didn't work. Guest appeared under Author.

    Maybe I should type my questions and then log in before I post the questions. It's possible there is something wrong with my computer.

    Sorry to bother with such a small issue.

    Best wishes,

    Jiang
