    I Keep getting logged out of this forum!!


    Is there some sort of idle time setting on this forum that would log me out?

    I have logged in but am then doing things that mean I am not always actively moving about the forum (e.g. running reports, checking on another laptop etc.). Then when I come back to the forum and try to post something, I find I am no longer logged in.

    Anything I can do to stop this?

    Maybee you have a schedule on a cleaner programme that removes saved passwords or cache or cookies can you check that?

    Hello Maggi,

    When you log in to the site, did you check the Remember Me box like below?

    If you did, then perhaps you may have a corrupted cookie. Delete your cookies, and log back in to see if that helps.

    I never let anything save passwords and I never check 'Remember Me' boxes.

    Also I never have any cleaner running that I don't know about. Maybe I should change my name to paranoid

    This seems to happen when I have logged in but then not been active on the site for a while, hence my wondering if there is some automatic logout after an idle period.

    Yep, without the "Remember me" box checked, you will be automatically logged out when the site times you out after being inactive for X amount of minutes.

    A forum session here expires after 45 minutes of inactivity, after that you would need to log back in.

    This site is harmless as far as cookies go.
