Post Timeout

Post by Harewood »

Hi,
We have upgraded to the latest version and some members are complaining that when they type out long posts and click submit they are prompted to re-login and loose what they have typed in their post. Is this a bug or is there a timeout setting for writing posts?
Any help appreciated.

You could check your session length to see if it is artificially low. It defaults to 1 hours (3600 seconds). ACP > General > Load settings.

Hi,
Thank you for your replies.
I have checked:
ACP > General > Load Settings.
Value = 3600

Perhaps it's related to your cookie settings.
