Timeout Before Post Completed

  ame 22:08 06 Jan 2010

Is it just me, or do you not get enough time to compile a decent posting on this website any more before you get logged out? I have made quite a few posts in recent months that I've had to redo because I've had to log in again........

Go to your Profile page and choose the " Keep me logged in on this computer (unless I log out)*" option. Although I have never noticed a "time-out" on posting, before.

You're not timed out once you've logged in.

Weird. It's just done it yet again. Is it something to do with IE8 or compatibility mode? MAJ - can't see that option in PCA My Profile page.

Scroll down, and you'll see a tick box for it.

Thanks guys - just found it!

You could try composing your masterpiece in a word-processing application and using copy/paste. In that way you can also run a spell check if you wish.

Hmmm. The "keep me logged in.." option means I am automatically logged in when I visit the site even after a computer restart. Useful, but not what I expected or really wanted. But what the hey...resorted to copying my post with right click before posting so if it's lost I can just paste it back in (as long as I remember!)

"Useful, but not what I expected or really wanted."

Log out before you leave?

Thought I did that - I'd better try again!

Unless, like me I find the "Logout" button does not work, simply takes me to a different page, but still logged in!!
If I want to 'get out' I need to do a Ccleaner run.
