Beg your pardon.
It was Franca who said that she found the name of the addressee odd in the introductory line that the software uses as a 'title'. I don't find it so, but I never read those anyway, except when my attention is drawn to them.

Apology accepted, but unnecessary (I was amused by your screen shot rather than annoyed).

Default Still seeing the wrong view!

I don't know if that has occurred yet, but I thought I'd let you know that log out is fixed but display mode is not.

When I come to the forum, the default view is always Threaded Mode. I hate Threaded Mode so I change to Linear Mode. This sets the following cookie in my browser:

www.desktoppublishingforum.com bbthreadedmode
Content: linear
Expires: Tuesday, August 28, 2007 5:02:59 PM

Now, as long as I don't log in, everything is fine. I can shut down Firefox, even shut down the computer, and the next time I come back to the forum, the forum software apparently reads this cookie and I am still in Linear Mode. Just like I used to be.

But, if I do log in, even though this cookie has an expiration date of August, 2007, it gets deleted when I log out, so next time I come back to the forum, I'm in that dratted Threaded Mode again!

Why is the forum software deleting cookies that are not set to expire until 2007? Shouldn't it only be deleting end-of-session cookies?

No idea. On my system, Firefox can delete cookies, or I can; never have had any other agency do so.

I will rummage through vBulletin’s innards — try to see if this is possible or likely.

Because that is what "log out" means--to delete the cookies. It is designed to be used when you log in from non-private machines, where you don't want to leave the cookie behind.

if you go to the "User CP," then choose "Edit Options..." under "Settings and Options," you can select your prefered display mode under " Thread Display Options." This will store your choice in the user record in the database--instead of just in a cookie.
