Where did the 'stay logged in forever' thingy go?
« on: May 03, 2013, 01:10:05 PM »
I might just be missing it but... last night I was tinkering and posting at the same time. I had about finished a post but went out to tinker some more. I then forgot about the post and went to bed.

This morning I wake up to find i am logged out when I try to post the post I had written.

Not much was lost but it was still an annoyance.

I've also noticed that the site boots me out after a while.

More than once I was actively on the site when I started writing something to post and when I hit the "Post" button, nothing happens......   :(

I've learned that when this happens I need to highlight and copy everything I've written to my computers temporary memory.

Then, by hitting the refresh arrow on my web browser I am suddenly at the site but I'm not logged in. :(  :(

By re-logging in I can get back to the topic I was writing in and finally post my thoughts. :)

I do the same thing just in case I accidentally delete it or back browse by accident... copy paste is a lifesaver...

Its right there. If you delete cookies form your computer (some browsers automatically do it at fixed intervals) you could lose login info.

My login is at the top of the  screen...  Weird...

Ah Ha!  1 thumps picture shows the key to the dilemma.

Yes, there is a "logon" at the top of the screen but it doesn't offer the ability to change the length of time before you are automatically booted out.

If you are not logged in, over on the left side is another "logon" with the ability to select the time span before your automatically booted.  This doesn't show up if you are already logged on.

(Now that I've used it and said that, just watch!  The next time I come here I'll have to log in again.)  ;D
