There;s a LOG in/ Join box on the top right on an non-logged in page. Beneath that there is a magnifying glass. On a normal page the (user panel: inbox, alert etc) options are right below the "caracature" So, when not logged in, you have to move the mouse quickly to get to the login screen. If you move slowly all bets are off. The LOG-in options should appear just below the orange title bar.
