posting trouble

Postby sl_simpson » Fri Jan 21, 2011 9:33 am

Just have some trouble with posting a reply or new post. I type all info then go preview or submit and have to log in again as it has timed out and what I have typed is no longer there. Even doing the save button at the bottom the samething happens.
One thing that I have done so I don't lose what I have typed in I do a copy then login again and paste.
Has anyone else had this problem?
Is there a setting that I need to adjust my end that will stop this happening?

It might be sessions expiring, i'll see if i can set it longer... i've had that issue before, what happens is that it logs users out after they have being inactive for a certain amount of time, mainly a security issue... when you type a message it sees it as inactive ... its a dumb setting so i'll see if i can somehow disable it... i have written really long replies before only to hit submit and it asks for the login again... of course then it wipes all the message you just wrote... really annoying... i tend to write my replies then highlight it all right click and copy it, then click submit... that way its saved if that occurs....
