    Resolved [RESOLVED] Website timeout

    I'm sure I'm not the first person to say this, but I think the login timeout is pretty short. I'll be on the site then do a little research then come back to it and have to login again... I'm not sure how long the timeout is, but it's pretty short.

    Re: Website timeout

    Are you checking the "Remember Me" checkbox when you login?

    As stated, the remember me check box is important is is enabling cookies.

    I never get timed out and I stay logged in on several boxes for days and weeks on end.

    Now that I've said it like that I'm a little scared

    Thanks everyone. I didn't realize that the "Remember Me" checkbox had that effect. I will certainly use it the next time a login

    It may just be me, but a handle like that would be hard to forget (sorry, couldn't resist).
