I just accessed the site and landed on the default page for the forum where the address is the following: https://www.socialanxietysupport.com/forum/
What immediately struck me was finding that I had not only been signed in but as a different user (all via simply accessing the page). At least, this was my initial observation.
Freaking out, thinking I'd get nailed for an obvious misunderstanding, I clicked on the logout link found on the page. It worked, and I was taken to that page everyone sees when they logout.
Thinking I discovered a bug, I logged on with my own account and in the middle of typing this post, felt the need to reproduce this weird glitch.
So, now while still logged-in to my account, I yet again visited the above linked-to page. To my surprise, I again see the wrong username in the top section where it's usually displayed.
Curious as to what happens, I clicked on the Private Message
s link and the page it took me to was the expected one (with accurate PMs) where the correct username was now being displayed at top.
Till now, I haven't tested any other specific page while logged out but this glitch happened to me both while logged in and not logged in. While logged in, it appears that only the landing page or forum index is the page with the weird glitch.
Is this affecting anyone else or is this just me?
P.S. - I took a screenshot of what I see, but to avoid any conflicts, I omitted the image. On request, I would be more than happy to provide it to someone via private channels.
