I was reading posted messages after having been away for a few days when I came across a message I wanted to comment on. I did not realize, I was not logged in but that really "should" not matter! It took several attempts of clicking on Reply before the system responded, no clue why but my connection to the network was solid.

Once the system responded, it displayed a login page. I suspect this might be the first time I accessing the message board from this browser. Anyway, when the login page was displayed the system updated the tree view of my current readig list. And after entering my email address and password, I was taken to a post new message screen rather that taking me back to my current list of messages or for that matter not returning to the message I was originally trying to reply to.

I don't think the old message board had this behavior. Oh well, at least now this browser has my account information so maybe next time this won't occur.

Hello, session and users are two different things, despite that synchronization of sessions for the same user would be a verry good thing for "Web Connection" in the future.

Uh what?

If you want to sign in only use the sign in option. If you reply the list the signin form will force you to log in first before putting you to the write message interface, which is all the right behavior IMHO.

Your session maintains your last login, but as Marcel points out, it's stored in the session not hte user account. You can always reset your session dates using the Search box.
