you apparently do not have the SSL setup correctly. your domain name is not secure according to my browser and my test script.
however, you do have cookie secure set to yes. that is what is causing your logout problems.

Since you are using secure-cookie, you should be using https: not http:

I apologize for the images, but wasn't sure otherwise how to show you the settings. These are my default settings currently. How would I change this to fix the issue? Thank you for your time.

Dont change the settings... Type in https: in your web browser's address bar.

When I type in https, it shows as secure but will log me out still after visiting 'vote' and then back to forum which will switch to http again. I have an ssl certificate, where am I going wrong? If I force https, I get an error. My cookie secured settings are enabled because I have an SSL certificate.

There is no reason for your browser to switch to http, unless you are clicking a link which says http, rather than https

Thank you! Seems to have fixed everything, somehow. I changed the header links to link from http to https, seems now that everything automatically comes up as https now.
