    If you log in to MP from the main page http://milepoint.com you revert to the main page and then have to do a further click to enter the forums. It would make more sense to me to be taken to the forum page after logging in.

    Yes, it would at this stage. Perhaps they plan to add other sections, so that the new main page will have links to the forum, to inside flyer, to whatever other main content sections. I see that on other forum sites.

    Good point about future development, which I hadn't considered.

    Thanks for the feedback guys, this is the default behavior of the forum, upon signing in you are returned to the page you were viewing before clicking the sign in link.

    This method encourages me to use a bookmark for another page to open up MP (to avoid the annoying unneccessary extra click required) rather than the landing page.

    That makes sense, I think most milepoint users will likely do this as the content is in the forum. :) Most also don't log in/out on their devices so wouldn't hit the log in page in most cases if they had bookmarked the entrance page.

    All that said, there likely will be changes to either this behavior or to the entrance page at some point.

    I don't come often to MP because I'm busy on the other BB, but if I have to log in 3 times before it 'takes' each time, that's a deterrent for me. It's irritating to be logged in, says it's me in the upper right corner, but if I click on alerts (for example) it tells me I have to be logged in in order to access that. Same if I want to reply. I couldn't figure out why that didn't exist as an option until I logged in for 3rd time.

    If its going to take you back to the mainscreen, it would be nice to at least see some indication that I'm in fact logged in other than having the login screen gone.

    Maybe if where it says "Come in and look around" could be dynamic and say "Hi Missy, come on in" or something?

    This is the type of change to that page that I was hinting at above. :)

    SkiAdcock, are you still having a problem now? It sounds like you have found the "Stay Logged In" feature.
