    Forum AutoLogout Causing loss of forum posts

    When typing up a forum post that takes a few minutes to compose, when clicking on the "Post" or "Preview" button, the site throws an error that I am not logged in and cannot post. I am then redirected to a logon page and the post page is refreshed losing all of the text previously typed up. So far, I have resorted in copying the text of the new post so that I can paste into a new post form at which time I can successfully submit a reply.

    Is there any way to adjust the timeout so that this does not occur?

    Thanks, JohnZ

    OK, the default was 900 seconds (15 minutes). I've doubled it to 1800 (30 minutes). Is there some reason you don't want to use the "Remember Me?" check-box option when you log in?
