Hello everyone
Using IE 6, i log in to my forum and then close my browser whithout logging out. When i start my browser again i find i am still logged in. If you ask me, this is not desirable, is it?

It's a feature and this is like it's supposed to work. Works in all browsers that way.

If you'd like to log out all users and do not keep their sessions, take a look at the bb_cookie.php script. Modifying the functions which set cookies, you could modify them to set a cookie which expires at the end of session (but I'm not sure if that would be truly comfortable for your users in the end).

Alternatively, the OP can consider configuring his/her browser to delete the cookies upon quitting the browser. If interested, Google for "delete cookies" for instructions.
