  • Why does the forum log me out after a given period of time?

    This is very frustrating!! It doesn't matter if I am actively reading posts or not. I get timed out after about 10 minutes or so unless I am constantly responding to posts or clicking links!!
    I just got through writing a fairly lengthy post in the showcase section. Once I got done, I hit the submit button and it said I couldn't submit my post because I was not logged on! I hit the back button and my post was still there in edit mode. I scrolled up to the top of the screen and it showed I was still logged in... what's the deal with that??!!

    When I tried to hit submit again, it still said I was not logged in, but this time when I hit the back button, it didn't take me back to my post. I lost the entire thing and have to start over. That really sucks!!

    Just had to vent. I am going to go back and try it again but I don't know how to keep myself logged in if it takes me too long to write what I have to say!

    That sounds like a local issue. Try clearing your cache and reading this thread for possible other issues.

          2 things I always do, and that I've passed on to at least one other member in the past:

          1. Make sure you click on the "Remember Me" block with the log-in section.

          2. Depending on what type of computer you're using, in most cases - when you're composing a message, keep a word processing (Microsoft Word/Works, etc) file open also. Copy and paste your message to the open file, and save it in the open file, before you try to post it. If it's an anywhere-near long message, periodically copy and paste what you've composed so far, in stages, until you're done. Or - compose the complete message first on the Word/Works/etc open file, save it, then copy and paste it from there to your message on the forum.

          That way, your chances of losing it are next to none. I have one running open file that I use to compose/save all entries I put on any forum. Not only can you quickly retrieve/transfer any message if it doesn't enter properly, but you can easily retrieve it for future reference at a later date if you need to post a similar/same reply on the same or a different forum.

          Between these and what Alan posted above, you'll probably never lose a message again before you get it successfully posted...

                    Wow, that's never happened to me. You must have offended the forum spirits. I recommend offering libations and a monetary sacrifice.
