Every half hour or so, I am logged out automatically for some reason, and have to log back in. Is this a setting in the software here I can change? Or is it a setting on my computer? Thanks.

When you log in be sure to check the box that says "Remember Me".

If not, you'll be automatically logged out every 20 minutes or so.

It could also be a browser issue on your computer.

Hope this helps.

Please also note that you don't get logged out if you are doing something. Even refreshing a page will restart the 20 minute timer. When members get logged out, it is because they are idle for a long time or composing a long post, etc.

Same thing kept happening to me (*far* less than the time-limit you seem to have noticed, however), so I set the reload time of my browser (Firefox 2.0.0.16) to 2 minutes, and all is well.

Hmmmmm...

I'm using Firefox also.

I do believe I get logged out every so often even if I'm doing something every couple minutes.

And yes, I do check the "Remember Me" box every time, but it makes no difference - it doesn't help.

Oh well, not that big of a deal; thanks! :)

A thought and a possible explanation to what you are calling getting logged out. When you login or access THR for the first time each day, what URL are you linking to? In other words, do you go to www.thehighroad.org or to thehighroad.org (no "www")? Then when you get logged out (usually after clicking on a THR link), what is the URL address in your "Location Bar" as it's called in Firefox? If the prefix is not the same, then that could explain it.

Make sure you don't have cookies disabled.

It is your browser. Clear the cookies. Am temp files and then make sure that you can save the password and also click the "remember me" button. I had the same problem with FFox.

It could definitely be cookies. Sometimes they get corrupted and the forum won't recognize you are being logged in.
