Remain logged into forum

I was wondering if perhaps I've overlooked some setting, but I'm getting fed up with having to log back into the forum after a very short space of time.

 

I was wondering if anyhone knows a workaround or some setting that perhaps I might have missed that would allow me to remain logged in. 

 

Thanks in advance Smiley Happy

Re: Remain logged into forum

The issue has been raised before and it is a pain keep logging in.

 

Some of us ese Firefox with the add on ReloadEvery which you can set to refresh the page every 10 mins or so. You can then stay logged in if you wish.

Refresh Monkey does a similar job on Chrome and you can customise the settings on both.

Irritating isn't it, the problem is you're also logged into the main site which I believe always times out?

 

I think I preferred separate log ins.

 

ReloadEvery is handy, but I still get logged out a couple of times a day.

Just out of interest, if anybody wants to do further tweaks in Firefox type about:config in to the address bar. Also about:mozilla does some other stuff.

 

Leave your candy-colored cans in the toy chest and try a pair of proper headphones.

Of course, this disclaimer sounds more daunting than it actually is. Although be careful.

I must admit I also find this a pain but I use Norton identity safe which stores all the passwords for my sites so at least I don't have to remember them all and keep typing them in

Does it work with the O2 sites?
