I get logged out
I don't know if anyone else has this problem, but if I reply to a thread and my answer takes more than - for example - 15 minutes, and I then try to 'Submit', I find I've been automatically logged out.
It's annoying because I then need to go back to a previously cached page, copy what I wrote, log in again, relocate the thread I'm replying to and paste my reply in there.
Is there any way of increasing the default log-in time, to take into account longer replies?
I'm also having similar kind of problem.
while repling to a thread,sometimes,what i wrote is lost..i have to re-write the same stuff again in gedit rather than using text area reply box given by linuxforum and then post as reply.
Only Core Wizard has the permissions needed to make that change, so maybe he can respond directly to your inquiry.
In the interim, if I plan to work up any longer than average post/reply, I use a text editor to create a draft of the message, and only when it's done do I then copy it to the forums message box. Doing that has saved me a few premature logouts.
I find that if I check "Remember me" when I log in, this doesn't happen
Yes, that option works very well. You just have to remember to log out when your done if you don't want to be logged in on your return visit.

Some people would stay logged in forever if allowed to do so. Forcing a logout after a determined amount of time helps to keep up with how many are logged in at any given time.
Maybe Core Wizard will answer with more info/details.
