This topic may have been posted already but I can not find it.

My grumble is this:  I keep getting signed out of this site if I'm gone for 5 minutes or more.  Is this just my computer setting? I don't have this problem with any other site.

Please help me from pulling all of my hair out!

Thank you,  Dawn

It's not just you, Dawn. I get signed out after about 10 mins of inactivity,  even though I have a window open.  I have no idea how to keep from getting logged out, though.

Thanks for the reply, Kim.  It's probably an internal setting to help keep the "riff raff" out of our site.   :)

I don't have that issue. I wonder if it's something in your browser. How often do you have your browser set to refresh?

I have never had my browser clear my cookies on its own volition, that I know of...

I never had an issue of having the site open, getting up to go to the bathroom, get a bite to eat (okay, much more than a bite) and then coming back to find I've been logged out of the system and have to log in again.  However, since the updates, this is a very common occurance.  Like all the time.  I thought it was just me.

I've had that problem ever since the last major overhaul (how many months back was that?), and can't seem to fix it.  I've just learned to live with it (and it helps keep me from popping in here every 3 minutes or so....).  :)
