How to stop being "logged out" whilst composing a thread or reply.

Hi all, I.m SICK of being logged out whilst composing a thread, RR or reply, I have just (Again) attempted to submit a RR with maps,images etc only to find I have been logged out and all is lost.Very dissapointing
I am at the point where If this cant be solved I wont bother posting. Other forums I submit to that are FREE , I can stay logged in indefinately!.These are the ones I will be submitting RR's to. I don't really want to just post a "link" to another forum- We ride a 'Strom so want to put or 'Strom rides here
HELP!

ps I know it is possible to compose a RR using "office" or whatever and
"paste" it here? but I dont have that knowledge atm. I just want to extend the automatic log out to an hr or 2 or remove it.

posting issues

Cutting and pasting ( use ctrl C and Ctrl V ) from Word helps me sometimes; but after you have posted you can go back and edit your post and save it again.
Don't give up.

Road Toads Charter Member - old guy goes stromabout on a 2007 Vee and finally has touched all of the 48 contiguous United states and the 10 Canadian provinces.

Do you click the "remember me" box when you log in? If not, do that. Also, you can compose your post in any word processor or note pad. Highlight you composition and copy it. Ctrl-C will copy highlighted material in Windows and Ctrl-V will paste whatever you copied or you can use the toolbar. Other operating systems have ways to copy and paste too.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

Please vote in the poll on what Strom(s) you have at https://www.stromtrooper.com/informat...-you-have.html

The safest thing to do if more than just short response is to compose it in Microsoft "Word". When finished, you can proof read it and spell and grammar check it there. Then right click mouse, "select all" and "Ctrl C" (copy). Then go back to the forum thread open text panel and "Ctrl V" to paste it in your posting text panel.

What you do so you don't get logged out?

I am also constantly getting logged out when just browsing or following a link outside of this side and read that for a little while. I have not timed it but guess 5 maybe 10 minutes. In the past it did not seem to matter when I used the "remember me" feature. I doubt it does but will try it again. I thought that is just a cookie to remember the user name next time you log on.

I have the same problem. Figured I was too long away or I simply timed out.
The site has to protect itself so it's part of using the forum.

Its bloody annoying! as commented even browsing or following a link causes "log out" - particularly when you are a paid up legit subscriber

I thank all respondants and see the benefit of using MS Word etc
This is something that will ease the post topic urgency but wont solve the timeout when browsing the forum and getting disrupted for 5 mins or so. Other (free) forums seem to protect themselves without the timeout....

As said, click the "remember me" button when logging in. The cookie might expire after 10 minutes depending on how it's set up. I'm never logged off on this forum or any of the others I'm on that the Canucks own.
