View Full Version : taking too long on the forum
04-22-2013, 06:36 PM
when I write a long reply to the forum I get logged out and then it asks for my login and I have lost my reply.
Don't feel like posting now since I've written it twice and it hasn't gone up.
And I had a really good response too

I see a fairly long reply from you on this thread:
Is that the one you were hoping would post? Or were you trying to post a reply to another thread? Glad to help if I can.

John, try Admin CP -> vBulletin Options -> Cookies and HTTP Header Options -> Session Timeout - I'm set to 3600.

I increased the session timeout. Hope this helps.

Try writing your posts in nvAlt (or any other text editor). I've lost my share of posts in the past. Now I just write them in a separate window and if I get an insight while I write, I save it in my computer journal, too.
This also helps with scrolling up and down if I want to re-read some of the other responses. :)

Yes, it was the post. I ended up writing it in OneNote and then copying and pasting.
Thanks for increasing the time out
