This is the most annoying point of the new board. If I want to post a reply or even read the most updated list in my view, I have to click on Subs board to sign in. This is even after I have signed in on the top right. The two systems are not communicating properly on firefox. I am assuming this has something to do with cookies and browsing privacy, but I do accept ALL third party cookies, however I do not cache user credentials, history, etc.
Will. My suggestion is to add a "Login" link specifically for the forum next to the search bar or the "Forum" tab. Additionally, if you could add the "reply" or "Post" option for those non-logged in users, which would first redirect to a user login, like on the old site, that would be perfect as well.
In a separate suggestion, how about a small real-time chatbox at the time. I've seen a lot of Vbulletins incorporating this, and it might help bring up the visitor level if people can just log in, and sit there and chat about things. Works for the bodybuilding.com forums.
Something like this

Have no idea why but Firefox works for me in regards to the sign on process. I don't have to do it unless I've cleared the cookies or run a scan.

I found the issue with the session cookie problem. aMember was not using the correct domain for the code that integrates with vbulletin. This is now integrated correctly and works like a charm for me. I would be interested to see if Gotham Hokie has better results now.Always use "Reply With Quote", so everyone knows to whom you're responding.

I get that, but it's not consistent. It's giving me trouble, but it's not reproduce-able on command.Always use "Reply With Quote", so everyone knows to whom you're responding.

I think unless you go to www.techsideline.com .. the actual home page, and login, the single-sign on doesn't work.
If you go directory to www.techsideline.com/forums as I do, and try to click on the login on the upper right, it will still require you to sign in to the forum if you want to reply or access member areas.
I think it's an issue with cookie generation. I believe the login module at the top right in the forums view is not creating a cookie.
Private mode or not, if I allow third party cookies until they expire, and I go to the home page to login before going to the forums, Single Sign On works just fine. If I go directly to the forums, and use the right hand login, it makes me log in again before I can post or access the subs areas. I think it's a problem with cookie generation from the upper right login in the forums view.

This might take some time to process, but it should show you the scenarios (1080p):
