session timeout

does anyone know what the timeout is for the session vars on this site? It seems like even if I'm idle for 10 minutes, I have to log back in.

Correct. Only have to log in once in awhile, I think when cookies get cleared.

well i've searched thru chrome's settings and nothing is off. cookies r not being cleared at any time, even when closing the browser. but how can this be a browser issue anyway? cookies are issued by websites.

But browsers can be set not to allow them. In any case, I was just speculating, I don't know the answer.

yes I know, and my setting is to allow them, so that is not the issue. I'll keep investigating.

Re: session timeout

hey you guys,

does anyone think that this timeout issue could be related to the fact that I'm logged in here many times on my mobile phone's hotspot?

I also get this stupid issue with my bank whereby when logging into online banking, almost everytime those idiots want to send a verification code to my phone cuz they don't recognize the device. it does not matter how many times i press that stupid "register device" button after entering the code. the low level agents claim it's an issue with me clearing cookies, but just like this website's issue the cookies are never cleared. I have a suspicion it's their website's code not thinking US Cellular's IP address associated with hotspots are valid or something. As far as I know, that IP address doesn't change.

Re: session timeout

I would have thought that if you were 'attached' to another hotspot, that ip address would change.?

I only logon from PCs, two devices in the house and one in office, so never have the problem after initially logging in?

as far as I know, the ip never changes. I assume the hotspot ip address comes from a cell tower? everytime I've checked the geo location database ip address of my page visits via PHP code, the address has always been the same.

Re: session timeout

I was at the library on a wi fi all day long today and not once did I time out on this website, and there were times that I was idle for 30 minutes or more. Now I'm back home on the hotspot again and sure as hell, the timeout has started happening again!
