Starting today, when I go to Active Topics in Quick links, I don't see anything newer than yesterday midday unless I login. Once I login, I see several new posts from today. I'm used to having to login to post, but not just to view posts.

If you don't log in, how would the forum know what was new since your last log in? There have been changes on the forum but I'm not sure this is one of 'em. Maybe that changed but I haven't noticed the issue you speak of here.

I'm not sure how it USED to work, but it always knew what I opened on my last visit, even though I only ever logged in when I wanted to post.

Mysterious....the workaround is just to stay logged in all the time.

I disagree. Log in while you are on the site and log out before you close the tab/window. Maybe I'm just old fashioned.... But other than two places I NEVER keep tabs/windows active. Those two sites are pretty cool - I have no worries. Many of you have one of 'em active, probably right now.
