Auto log out

Recommended Posts

Mickey

Seems like I'm running into the auto log-out due to inactivity. Looks like the timer is set for 5-10 min. Don't know if this is applied to everyone, new members or number of posts.

Sure creates an inconvenience if one is slow in composing a post. Can anything be done to increase the time period?

That would be annoying Mickey!

I haven't heard anyone complain about this before so...

Let me ask our Tech guy and see if you are, somehow special :).

Fix is rather simple I think...

Just be sure to check the "Remember Me" box on the login prompt then it should be good forever. My Mom is the same way and had the same issues even with my site vB4.

(Technical Explaination)

What happen is without the "Remember Me" checked the cookie will timeout after about 900 seconds (15 minutes) and be dropped. (Security feature) but with the check box clicked then the cookie is saved and re-referenced from your browser cache after the timeout and the timer starts again... :happy34:

OK, checked the remember me box. Will have to see. Gonna let this post sit a while and see what happens. :) Looks like that did the trick.

Thanks for the tip.
