  • Users complaining of being logged out while composing posts

    How do I increase the length of time before users on my vBulletin Board need to login again - they are complaining of being asked for their login/pwd between the time when they start composing a post and come to send it?

    Thanks!

    Tell them to click on the 'Remember me' box when they login. This will keep them logged in as long as they are not blocking cookies, assuming of course you have no modifications that broke this.

      Thanks, Steve.

      Have suggested that to the users in question.

      Is there another setting (in the Admin CP) regulating timeouts?

      Your quick and helpful reply much appreciated....

        You can increase the cookie timeout:

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