Getting logged off

On 2 different occasions this morning I have been perusing threads when I noticed I have been logged off. I have had to log on 3 times already in about 30 minutes time. Is anyone else having this problem???

OK. I logged off and I see the remember me box. I thought that was just for automatic logon when you went to the home page. I had already logged in but for some reason keep getting logged off.

This issue has come up several times. Yes, the board does log you off too quickly. I am the administrator on another board using different software and there is a configuration parameter that can be set to control this automatic log off time. I am quite sure there is a setting on this board for that as well.

It has been adjusted in the past and this issue goes away for a while then returns. It appears there is more that one site administrator and they differ as to what they feel is an appropriate automatic log off time.

I have been caught several times making a lengthy post only to find I have been logged off before the post was completed. Very annoying but that is the way the board is operated. I do not use the "Remember me" because I do not want to remained logged on if I have computer issues on my end.

I did not think the remember me box pertained to this. I log on and off as necessary. Don't think it was a time issue as I had only been on a couple minutes each time when I was logged off. I have experienced the same issues as you have with a nice long post to find out I had been logged off and could not respond. Aggravating to say the least.

I agree that the timeout seems a bit too short. It may not be that the time is being consciously being changed back. The timeout change may be set longer, but not being made permanent. Any time the site restarts it may just revert to the shorter setting.

I find that remembering to click "Preview Post" keeps me logged in. Another option is to keep another tab open and just click back and forward on that occasionally. Any active open connection to the forum resets the time for all. For longer replies I often use Wordpad and then copy and paste the text to the forum.

Using Windows 7 Google Chrome if I wait too long I don't lose any text by needing to sign back in for "Preview Post". I just use the back arrow after re-logging in and return to my text. Other browsers may react differently.

I agree that the timeout should be a bit longer to make posting more friendly.

You have to check that box and have cookies enabled. If you clear cookies the site will log you off as well.

I assume the change in timing is from software patches/updates that occur behind the scenes.
