automatic logout after x time of inactivity?


9 Jul 2003
After I first sign in and by the time I post a message, it always sends me to the sign in page.
So I have to go back, copy my pre-posted post, sign in, then go back and find the thread I was at in order to finally post my message.

At first I thought this was because I was taking such a long time to type out my response and the system automatically kicked me out after a certain amount of inactivity. But then I posted just a little while ago and I don't think I took too long to type in my message.

Is there any way for an individual user to change the amount of time they remain inactive before they have to re-sign in?
I think this board is set to 5 minutes or something. Why not use permanent login that automatically logs you on (by going to User CP > Edit Options > set Automatically login when you return to the site? (uses cookies) to yes)? And when you want to logout, click the logout link.
