session times


Active member
One of my users has just spent 2hrs working on a wiki page, when he went to preview it XF had logged him out and he lost the lot. Is there a default session time somewhere of something like 3600 seconds??? I need to increase that...or if anyone has any other ideas that would be great!

That shouldn't happen if he checks the "stay logged in" checkbox.

There is the Online Status Timeout in Options -> User Options but I'm not sure if that is also tied in to the session inactivity timer for those who don't check the checkbox.

Sessions are valid for an hour. They should be maintained if he was working within the window though (if the window gets blurred, then that would happen, but he should have the content elsewhere...).
