  • Automatic Logout

    How can I have a session automatically logout after x amount of minutes.

    My problem is that I have about 30 public pcs. Most of the time, they do not log off so they end up posting with another name. How can i have a session automatically log off after about 1 or 2 minutes.

    thanks

    You need to stop people from getting their browser to remember passwords.

    You will have to remove the entry from the modifyoptions, registeradult and registercoppa templates, and then run the following SQL query.

    UPDATE user SET cookieuser=0;

    It will then rely on the cookietimeout set in the control panel which is 15 mins then they will be logged out.
