Hi, new Wikifur user here. When I go to the main page of Wikifur, that is, "Furry Central", the screen makes it seem like I am logged out, with the "Log in/Create account" symbol on the top right. However, if I navigate anywhere else on the site, or even click on the Log in symbol, the next page that it shows will show me being logged in and everything is fine. Is there some sort of coding error with the main page that is making it look like that? It's not really a problem, it's just a bit disconcerting and confusing when it happens.

It is also happening on the Meesh page for me when I searched for it. Searching and going to other articles does not do the same thing, neither does clicking random page. It's only the main page and the Meesh article so far. Whatever issue this is, it's really strange and seems almost random. SilverserenC 02:44, 28 May 2010 (UTC)
There is a persistent issue with caching that we've been trying to fix for a few months. You are logged in, and if you try to access an uncacheable page (like an edit page), then you should get the right one, but otherwise you might get a cached page as if you were logged-out. This might affect pages you just edited (though previews should show up right). If you want to be sure you're looking at the latest version of a page, just force a refresh in your browser with Ctrl+R or the appropriate combination for your system. --GreenReaper(talk) 03:49, 28 May 2010 (UTC)
That's kind of annoying. Well, I hope you're able to fix it. The only problem I was having, in terms of the Meesh article, was that I couldn't watch the page because it was showing me logged out, so the button wasn't there. I was able to fix that, though, by changing my preferences so pages I edit are automatically added to my watchlist. So i'll just deal. Thanks for letting me know. SilverserenC 04:03, 28 May 2010 (UTC)
