Ok, the log out time on here is far too short, and it is killing me. I can't even describe the frustration involved in typing a long post and hitting submit and getting a log in screen. Then, you hit the back button, and guess what? Everything you just spent so long writing, is gone.
Please MGM, lengthen the automatic log out time....
My users are complaining about being logged out too quickly!
You can increase the default length of sessions (ie. how long before a users session is considered 'dead') in Admin->General->Configuration->Cookie Settings->Session Length. Set it to whatever value your users feel comfortable with, remember that security issues may affect your decision (ie. having too long a session may allow non-users to abuse your board should a user forget to logout or otherwise leave a current session on a public workstation).
