Default Login Timeouts

A couple of times when I have been in the process of entering a post or reviewing/entering some Control Panel information I've gotten a screen that says 'you must log in' when I attempted to enter the information. I was logged in when I started the process. I assume that there is some time limit (perhaps 1 hour?) of 'no activity' after which I was automatically logged out by the system.

Admittedly, I can be painfully slow when composing a post or entering other information. And I assume that while typing in a post, the system does not perceive any 'activity'.

Fortunately, on this system I did not loose any information. After I re-logged in I was returned right to where I left off. (When this kind of thing happens on Yahoo Mail, everything is lost.) But this is still somewhat disconcerting. Could the 'no activity' time period be made a little longer?

Hello,

The default is 15 minutes which has already been extended to 30 minutes.

Did you know that there is a "remember me" box that can be checked in the login box?

The problem with making it longer is that when the forum is more active members may PM you and expect a reply seeing that you are online when in reality you have been away for 50 minutes.

Let me know what we would like to go. If we want to increase from 30 to 60 minutes it's an easy change to make.

-Raymond

I see your point. I'll try the 'remember me' feature and see how that goes. I think as long as I don't lose long posts I can deal with the re-login step.

Thanks
