I really hope this gets sorted out. :)
I’ve been having a whole lot of problems with WP lately, and it seems to always be a browser/cache issue.
For example, a typical snag is that I’ll be liking various posts, but if I try to leave a comment I get redirected to the login page. I am logged in! This happens everyday. The thing is that my browser automatically clears the cache when I log off so I am totally baffled.
What is the URL of the site that had the About page that you clicked on please?

timethief, I am topcat and 2ampundit. I just logged out of the one account and into another. The problems persist in all four of my accounts on several different browsers — each of which automatically clear the cache when I log off.
Windows 10 current version was loaded last month, and I have no add-ons or extensions. Java and cookies are enabled.
I intended to link the WP site that redirected me, but forget. Here it is:
When I click on the About tab it redirects me to whatever account I am logged into. If I’m logged in as topcat or 2am pundit (on any browser) that’s where I get redirected.
I don’t think it’s you that is doing anything wrong. That “About” link in their menu isn’t right. It goes to a non-existent post rather than a category as per the rest of the menu. So as you are logged in to WordPress.com you are redirected to https://wordpress.com/post.
@themagicrobot, thanks. I wondered about that and you have confirmed it’s the About link and not me.
Yeah, verified – it goes to https://wordpress.com/post for me as well.
Unless there are any other issues, I will remove modlook – feel free to add the tag back if you have any other questions.
