    Why am I logged out so fast?

    Can anyone explain why I tend to get logged-out rather quickly, especially while I am composing posts? It has happened at least twice today, and I found it out only when I went to "Preview" a post (always a good idea), and got the log-in page instead. I had to re-log-in and try to pull the draft post out of my cached pages locally in order to continue. A real pain in the...

    Is it simply a problem of the default amount of time that a user is allowed to be logged-in, and it happens to expire while I am busy composing the post? If this is the case, can the user adjust the time the cookie is active before it expires (which is what is happening here)? I see no way to do it in the User CP.

    If it's another issue, what is it and how is it solved?

    Sounds like a cookie config issue on your browser. How do you have how your browser handles cookies set?
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    Are you ticking the "Remember Me" box?

    I don't at work and I only stay logged in a relativly short time if I'm not moving about the forums.

    Forgot about the "Remember Me" box... I have ticked it off.

    If I continue to have problems, I'll check my browser settings.

    Thanks.
