Hi, where is it that we can extend the time before automatic log out to say 60 minutes? Thanks.
Options > User Options
Thank you. Is it the same as 'Online Status Timeout'?
Hi, I extended the time in 'Online Status Timeout and I'm still getting logged out. Did I do something wrong? Thanks.
If you increased it from 15 minutes to 60 minutes, you'll still be logged out. It'll just be after 60 minutes have gone by, not 15 minutes. However, to prevent being logged out, check the "Remember Me?" box when logging in.
That option doesn't have anything to do with logging out. It will always be around 60 minutes of inactivity (and no tab focus) unless you choose the option to stay logged in.
This is new to me. What's tab focus?
The browser tab.
If it is focussed, you have the tab selected.
Right. But what does it have to do with inactivity?
As Mike said:
Yeah, I understand it's after 60 minutes of inactivity, but I don't understand what tab focus has to do with it going by what Mike said.
If the tab isn't focussed, the 60 minute inactivity time limit applies.
Ah. So if I didn't check "Remember Me?" when logging in here on XenForo Community, if the tab was selected and 60 minutes passed, I would appear logged out only after refreshing the page or visiting another page, but if I were on another tab and 60 minutes passed, I would appear logged out when going back to the XenForo Community tab?
I have gone to user options and extended to 60mins...some members complaining they have to log in too often. Is there anything else I could do or recommend to them?
If they check stay logged in, they shouldn't have to log in again.
thanks for quick reply. they say they use that feature.
does the browser or their pc going to sleep have anything to do with it I could suggest to them?
is there another option I could have changed to counter-act that option?
If not, ah well, maybe they complain too much lol
The only things that would make them have to log in again are if they logged out or cleared their browser data.
