Yes it should. It didn’t for me until I saw that having just logged in, then going straight to the new releases page I was shown as logged out. So I did a Ctrl-F5 (to force a refresh) et voila ... logged in and with new items showing! I am getting sick of this.
I had this Shop VS Forums thing explained to me. Okay, this is what I know do not ask me why because I don’t know.
The Shop is a Secure Server site (yep) and the Forums are not a secure site (yep). And that’s all I know.
