  • Getting logged out after a couple minutes how to turn it off?

    When we sign in, if we don't click remember me, we get logged out after a couple of minutes. This could become very annoying when people have spent 10 minutes typing something, then when they press post they get asked to log in for a second time and when they do, everything that they had typed is gone and they have to retype everything.

    How do I fix this problem so that members do not get logged out after like 10 minutes?

    Thanks!

    The only way is to have them click on the 'Remember me'. That's the purpose of this.

      hmm I can't edit something in the templates so that it will log them out in like 30 minutes instead of 10?

        No, but you can increase the Cookie Timeout setting to 1800 (30 minutes):

        Admin CP -> vBulletin Options -> Cookies and HTTP Header Options -> Time-Out for Cookie
