    What is a good amount of time for a Cookie Session Timeout?

    Is there any advantage to having it real long or real short?

    15 minutes (900 seconds) is the default and a good amount to use. I see that value used on most forums unless they are new and trying to make the forum look a lot busier than it is.

    Please don't PM or VM me for support - I only help out in the threads.
