There were some glitches when we switched our name from americaninventorspot.com to inventorspot.com. The auto-login between the main site and the forums stopped working properly if you were logged in during the transition. If you're getting the "access denied message" please do the following:

- Navigate to inventorspot.com
- click the "log out" button
- clear cookies in your browser
- Navigate to inventorspot.com
- log back in
- return to the forum

That should do it! Sorry for the inconvenience.

There is not logout button I have seen when encountering the login problem. The way I had to fix it was to delete all cookies for http://www.americaninventorspot.com and also http://inventorspot.com for good measure and then type in http://inventorspot.com/forums to allow myself to login to the forums again. I think that will be a better way for people to fix their login issues.

Yes, deleting the cookies was how I was able to fix it, too.

Thanks Michelle and Roger.
