The cache for guests is longer than the guest for members.

I simply stay logged in.

There is something screwy about signing in lately. If the forum logs me out, when I come back, it goes right to enhanced mobile view. I always would go to the menu and choose ďleave enhanced mobile viewĒ. Then view the site like Iím on a desktop. Lately it wonít let me leave mobile unless I sign in. Even when I sign in it takes a few attempts.

Also I was/am getting a pop up while on mobile view. It tells me Iím the lucky iPhone user and I get to spin the wheel and get a virus. So I close the ET tab and open a new one. If I can sign in fast enough, and leave mobile view, it doesnít come back. Sometimes it takes a few tries. It does not do it at any other site. I closed all tabs and Safari, then cleared all cookies and history. It was ok for a few days and then started happening again.

Enhanced mobile view lacks likes and thank you, smileys, location, post count etc...

It would be nice to be able to view new threads and only sign in if thereís something to add. The way it has been for years.

iPhone ten using Safari

Cricket,

Your reply is unacceptable.

Why did it change all of a sudden? Having to sign in every time you want to look at recent posts won't fly.

Guess I should just spend my time on another forum like Mike Holt's which does not have this problem.

I'm just a low life engineer so maybe I don't belong here anyway.

I would too if I worked for them.

New posts works, but the sub forums don't.

I only regularly check the Cdn sub forum ... it has no new posts since I last logged in, so I have no reason to log in (to provide content to the user and the site)

Maybe you guys should hire a programmer.

I think they may have done some fine-tuning.
