    As time goes by this forum has gotten harder to read and wastes my time. Lately if I am not logged in any time I open a page in a window it won't close again unless I confirm it. And then again there are those pop-up windows that I have to close for each page too. Are you deliberately trying to drive away users? If you are trying to make money, this doesn't help. You need to attract people to the forum, not drive them away.

    Does the page and window behavior change when you're logged in?
    Generally, I'm automatically logged in when I come to The Photo Forum. It might be I've optioned to stay logged in either here at TPF or within my browser.
    I've never had happen to me what you've described.

    Once every couple years TPF does an upgrade and I have to log in again. I usually don't notice until I attempt to post a comment. I say D'oh and then log in.

    Edit: I recall a few years back that I was so busy with life in general that weeks and even months would pass between my visits to TPF. I recall that TPF would then ask me each time I came to log in if I wanted to comment or post a photo. Might it be that you are here infrequently enough for TPF to forget and require you to log in?

    Yeah the pop ups don’t happen if you’re logged in.

    Readers mean nothing without advertising, and vice-versa.

    I have noticed a difference in viewing this site between I pad and win 7 lap top but I believe that is because the lap top is still using ms explorer

    What OS, what browser?
    Auto Log-in, Windows 10, Chrome with an ad blocker extension: no pop-ups and only a single ad under the "Forum Sponsors" area to the right.
