Automatic logout

#1
It seems that after a number of minutes of no activity, I get logged out automatically. Is there a way of disabling this?

If not, it would be really useful to have something in user settings to either disable or change the non-activity period. Quite a few times it's logged me out while I'm in the middle of writing a lengthy post.

Thanks

Hmmm I don't seem to have that issue... There might be something in the settings.... Although looking at it now, I am not seeing anything. It's a very bizarre behaviour.

Has anyone else come across this issue? Or know of a solution?

In fact, thinking about it, I think it logs me out after a certain amount of time regardless of whether I'm 'idle' or not - sometimes when I'm writing a post, I get an error message about a 'server error' (next time it comes up I'll post the error message here), which I think coincides with when I get logged out automatically - I usually have to log back in and restore post content before I can actually post the reply.

Hmmm Interesting... as I said before, it's not happened to me, and I'd idle for hours... so I don't know... I ask again if it's happened to others.

There's a tickbox in the login dialogue. If I don't tick it, I get logged out in about half an hour. If I do, it stays until I clear my cookies.

Well, there you go. So it does seem vBulletin does have an auto logout feature. Just be aware to tick the 'stay logged in' button

The auto-logout is set to 15 mins, are you asking for it to be longer or are you saying its not working?

I'm saying I would like an option to turn it off completely :p Or at the very least make it something like an hour instead of 15 mins. It definitely works...

Ok thanks, I'll look into this.
