    Forum logout if page is left open for a long time.
    Inconvenient.

    Agreed. I'll put a longer "sell by date" on the cookie. :)

  3. Has not changed.
    "Keep me logged in" - not work.

    Hmm. Check the expiry dates of the bitespire.com cookies. Are they expiring too quickly?

    I think I fixed it.... "think" !
    I'll see if I can stay logged in all night. I hope it's not my snoring that melts the cookie. :D

    Back to the drawing board.

  8. It looks like it's a session cookie that gets recreated for some reason.

    @doogieUser It looks like it's a session cookie that gets recreated for some reason.

    Yup. Going to have a fresh look at it later.

    If you remain signed into the forum but do anything on it (add posts, browse, edit) then it goes into idle state. If idle for more than a couple of hours, it signs you out.

    If you close the forum and come back to it far later, next day, then the Remember Me should sign you back in.

    It appears to be working for me with no problems so far on my IPad and doogie desktop.
    I’ve probably just jinxed it, saying that :D

    This is very annoying, I logged in, switched to another tab, after a while I check it, and I was logged out again ...

    I’ve baked some new cookies. Keep a tab open on the signed in forum in the background and see if things improve when you go back to the forum.

    These new session cookies are choc chip. ;)
