Forum timeing out??

Can you enlighten me as to the reasoning behind (logging me off) if their hasn't been any activity on my part for a period of time?

There could be a number of things causing this...

First off, the server disconnects you from the site after 30 minutes of inactivity - this is a security precaution and keeps bandwidth down for members with limits on monthly usage who may forget to log out.

But: if you click the "remember me" button when you log in you should be reconnected automatically when you come back to the forum provided you have allowed cookie exchange with the forum. Here's where it gets a little dicey....

We use cookies (little bits of info swapped with your computer) to keep you logged in at page changes AND to log you back in when you come back to the forum. Some security programs (like Mcaffee and Norton) purge cookies when you lave a page if the security levels are set very high in the programs. Windows does the same thing.

You can do several things if you are having trouble staying logged in.
1. Set your security settings to medium.
2. You can specifically allow cookie exchange with the site in your browser settings or your security program
3. Be sure that you have clicked the "remember me" button when you log in.

I don't know that I fully understand that reasoning. With the way I have the settings on my PC, this is the only forum/website that I have this issue with. I would think it could possibly be a setting within your website/forum that could be change to eliminate the problem.

Lloyd,

Make sure and check the box that says "Remember Me" when you login. If not, you will be logged out after 15 minutes.

Andy, I understand that part of it. I just don't think it should be "necessary" to have to do that. Like I stated previously, this is the only forum/website that I have encountered this.
