Can anyone tell me why I keep getting logged off this site.
Is there an automatic log off and if so how long before one gets logged off. I have the site opened and I am still doing other work on anther site, then go back to this one and find I have logged out????

It's happened to me a few times too.
Just clear out your cookies and log back in.

Cheers

G'day Jim,
Hairy has posted the method for IE below.
I use Firefox, and in Firefox click Tools>Options>Show Cookies.
Then you can select the exploroz cookie from the list and delete it.
Then you just have to log back into the site.

Cheers
Glenn

What i find is an issue is if your logged in and have a long reply,and go to submit it,you have to re-log on and then all your reply is gone...
Some may take half an hour or so to write and does it make you see red..Hav to start over again or do people use word then copy and paste !

If you use Firefox, there is an add-on Textarea Cache that saves whatever you type into a text area or email to your clip board. In the event of a crash you can just copy/paste it back in again....too easy.
It's saved my bacon a few times.

Cheers

Warfer,
Try typing your reply in word, highlight, copy, logon, paste into reply. I agree that it is a pain when you lose your reply.
Cheers,
Wayne.

Could be something totally different as I use both IE and Firefox and have never been logged out even after extended sessions

I mainly use IE and also never have a problem with being logged off.

I once lost a large post in this forum so to combat that:

Whilst finished typing in the textbox use the following keys:

1. Ctrl A - That's hold CTRL down and press A. All the text will turn blue, callled highlighting the text.

2. Ctrl C - That copies the highlighted text into a clipboard (memory cache).

3. Now submit your message.

If it doesn't work, you can reopen the empty message text box and type 'Ctrl V' - that inserts text saved in the memory cache.

lots of technical stuff there,

I look at the forum from 2 different computers. I am permanently logged in on one computer (work unit of course)but whenever I view from the other computer (home) I have to log in each time.

Check back to see if you have used another computer, if so you may be logged in on that unit.

Nothing hard or complex simply when you log on look at the right side of the log in panel under the heading "Login Options" and tick the box that says "Auto Log in" for this computer.

You may have to do it every few months as I think it will require a new log on??
