So I checked all the settings on the forum and cannot for the life of me see anything that will allow for increasing the time before logging out after a few minutes of inactivity?
Seems like I'll get called away from my computer by one of my kids and then 5minutes later I'll come back and have to log back in. It wouldn't be a problem but I always check "new posts" to try and stay on top of what is going on :)
Is there a setting to do it? If not, what is the time frame before getting kicked off?
Thanx!

I've never found this either. I think it's just under 5 min. of no activity. It's the worst when you are composing a long message. I'm in the habit of "copying" it before I post so if I get logged out I have it stored.

I just checked settings and don't see a time limit anywhere. I'll have to dig further.

This forum is one of my home pages so if I'm online then I'm logged on. I've never been kicked off even after hours of inactivity. Don't know about any setting, just know that there's gotta be a way to fix it.

OK - thanx all for looking into this. It's irritating when I want to check all new posts since last loggin and then i get booted off and lose 1/2 the posts :confused:

GREAT - I just clicked it myself when logging in now and was going to see. Sounds like that's what I've been searching for :D

Holy crap. I closed my browser for a couple hours-- came back and didn't even have to log back in. Amazing!
