When I click links to other areas of AT that people put into their posts, it will take me to a page telling me I don't have authorization to be there or to a page that shows me not signed in.

I get the same message on and off. I thought it might be due to bad intra-post links - ?

They are bad links. If you look up at the address you will see that the person has left the www. out. I have noticed it particularly as I use the grey skin, and those links take me to the purple skin. For example:

with the www: Dragons thread in Chat (http://www.tarotforum.net/showthread.php?t=134218)
without the www: Dragons thread in Chat (http://tarotforum.net/showthread.php?t=134218)

If you find one of those links, just go to the address bar, and add the www. You will be taken back to the page where you are logged in.

Both those links took me straight to the thread :confused:

I have had that problem very very occasionally, and not just recently. I think it might be that somehow the link gets connected to the person who set it (not sure how) and the software is telling you that you are not logged into their account. Dunno, that's my theory anyway.
