I keep getting logged out from these forums

It just happened again! I clicked on 'Start new subject', and got logged out immediately. yesterday I was typing away at an epic post that took minutes to compose, but when I tried post it I was logged out. This is irritating, though not fatal.

Probably a simple explanation for it.............

Go to My Profile. There is a box to tick 'Keep me logged in'.

We all know that feeling. Why not do as many forum users do - type the epics into a word processor first, and then, when your prose has been honed and polished, paste it into the forum.

Thanks, FB. Done.

FE, good idea. I do get carried away sometimes. Usually when I'm waffling on about eons dead computer formats and arcade games of Yore, lol.

It happens to me every day.I have keep me logged in ticked but it keeps logging me out usually if I have left the computer to go for a cuppa.I am almost sure its an I.E fault.

I'm using the latest Firefox atm. IE kept freezing on me. I've only just got back online after a seven month absence, and it probably needs updating. Only use it for email, anyway.

I don't have a problem with it on Firefox.just don't like Firefox.
I.E7 you could try disabling your add-ons and see if that helps.or tools Internet Options and press reset.That puts I.E back to its original state.
But if you are quite happy with Firefox may be better just using that in case you get any problems with I.E.
