Hello all,
i have a question about the forum.
when i logged in to forum, after successful login it redirects me to the forum page.
but from this forum page if i click back of my browser, it again brings me back to the login page, although i still logged in, but instead of again redirecting to forum page it redirect me to login page.
is it a kind of bug in the forum??

I've experienced some web applications that had serious problems with the back button, so I think William is right.

However, I tried the following:
1) Logged off
2) Logged in - I was redirected to the Forums page
3) Pressed the Back button and got back to the login form
4) Logged in again, and again ended up on the Forums page

Perhaps the issue is browser/setting specific. I'm using Chrome.
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
