Automatically Logout.

Postby rjamil » Wed Dec 13, 2017 2:31 pm

Hi Admin,

It happened sometime recently that, while I was logged-in, after doing some posting, editing, etc., suddenly logout (as shown on top right side) but my username included in Registered User at Who is online (as shown on bottom after topics).

My hardware/software configuration is as follows:
Toshiba Satellite C855D
AMD E-450 APU with Radeon (tm) HD Graphics 1.65 GHz
4 GB RAM
Windows 10 Pro, 64-bit operating system, x64 based processor

there is a probably an inactivity time out period: i don't know how long it is but

its happened to me before when i was editing and making a massive post. I hit submit and was forced to log back in and lost all the stuff i was going to update.
{back button some times recovers it}.

That is the way it works. Check the Log me in automatically box when logging in to avoid this. Also, the list of users is a list of people ho were logged in in the last five minutes, not who is logged in right now.

Hi all,

Thanks for your valuable feedback.

I also recovered sometime my typing by backspace button.

Its neither inactivity timeout period nor log me in automatically check box button problem.

Sometime, I logged-in from smartphone and closed this forum site without logout, and when I reopen this forum again after some time, I found myself already logged-in. Please note that, I intentionally unchecked log me in automatically from all sites for security reason, i.e., email, online banking, etc.

I always logout from this forum when logged-in from computer/laptop.
