    How do i disable the option, so when i login to my forums, i don't have to re-login to get to the admin panel. There is no point in signing in twice, same passwords and all.

    So how do i disable this feature, and it is safe to disable it, right?

    It is not a feature which can be disabled.

    The Admin authentication stores a completely separate cookie from your public authentication. One that is shorter lived, etc.

    This makes the Admin CP much more secure. In fact, it is recommended that your forum account and your admin account are separate anyway. This isn't necessary, but obviously it does help to make things more secure.

    If it was possible to disable it, I'd say it wouldn't be safe to do so.

    This admin panel cookie is stored until you close your browser.

    Note that admin sessions last for 1 hour normally, and 24 hours with debug mode enabled.
