    I think it's that the "Logged in" period has been extended so users stay active for longer - if you look at the last activity time for the people listed as being online now it now stretches back to 11am this morning - normally it's only XX minutes maximum.

    See here http://www.acorndomains.co.uk/online.php?order=desc&sort=time&pp=200&page=1&who=members for the logged in members ordered by last activity time.

    Might well be wrong though.

    Yes I extended the period as people asked me to, this is a consequence.

    ditto. Now however (with admin administered new settings) it is not a true representation of who is currently using the forum.

    I've put it back to how it was and will see if there is another way to allow people to stay logged into VB.

    What I do is default the remember me tick box to on.
    The implications are that the session will never time out which may be an issue on a shared computer, but then if the user is on a shared computer they should logout before leaving it anyway.

    Thanks for the input but does this do it though? Members are telling me it differs by browser....

    I must admit I use Chrome and it never times out..

    Yep, works on all my forums. Only exception is people with corrupt cookies, people who log out (as that destroys the cookie at logout) or people who untick the remember me.

    I can't even remember the last time I logged in to the forum!... The 'remember me' tick box works like a charm!

    Firefox on mac never times out. Also forumrunner on iPhone doesn't time out with old settings.

    Can people with the time-out issue please try the tick-box and let me know if it's a fix.

    Thanks
