  • Automatic logout when editing?


    sometimes posting and editing a reply can take some time. Many times, when I finsish, the system tells me "you no longer are logged in as member MS-SPO, but as guest now".

    That's inconvenient, especially when the restore didn't get my latest changes.

    Is there a way to solve this?

    Sometimes I bypass this situation by copying my text into an ASCII-editor, but that's limited when using formatting in the Advanced Editor view. An alternative is repeated posting and editing, but that may cause other problems.

    Thanks + best, Michael

    I believe it is set to 15 minutes. If you are idle for 15 minutes, it will log you out for safety. Use the "remember me" to stay logged in.

      Hi Alan,

      I didn't stop the time, but I think it's happens faster than 15 minutes. And no, I'm active, not idling ; -)

      Can it be browser related (FireFox, now version 42.0, while I run FF all the time)?

        I have not had this problem in FF, but I never sit on a page for more than 3-5 minutes at most.

        I just checked, and the setting is set to 15 minutes. If you do not move from the page during that time, it will log you out. You will have to make your settings keep you logged in.

          Clear your cookies for

          In FF 42.0, click on the favicon for vdrums in the address bar (it says; Connection is Not Secure) Click the expand arrow > More Infomation > View Cookies > Remove all

          Close that dialog, and refresh any forum page.

          Sign in again as usual, making sure the "remember" box is ticked.

          This will create a new permanent cookie that will expire in 1 month. (You'll also want to add as an exception in any privacy cleaning programs, if you use them)

          This doesn't stop the occasional forum errors (Invalid server responce) you get when typing, but it keeps you signed in, so hitting post reply always works.

          If you sign in without ticking the remember box, you should clear the cookies and start again.
          You also may need to do this once the cookie expires after a month. Doing so, avoids any potential conflicts with data from a previous session.
