How long am I supposed to stay logged in? It seems like I'm constantly re-entering my username and password.

Well I can stay logged in between the posts. I only sign out if I close the tab. Have you got any firefox settings to delete sessions or something?

I'm in the same boat, I cant stay logged in very long at all. I use FF as well. It is kind of annoying, having to re log in every time I go to do something.

Yeah, there's definitely something going on. My understanding is that sessions should last for the duration of the window, not just the tab. And even so, I know that I've had sessions expire within a tab. All of this changed when they upgraded the forum module. On the old SS site, everything was fine.

Surprising to me that a major feature of the module simply does not work in a version that is available for download. I suppose one of us could just download the module, patch the bug, and submit it back to SS.

I doubt its the forum module itself as that doesn't handle any of the member auth stuff. It leaves pretty much all of that up to sapphire I would have thought? Any other ideas?

Maybe it is something to do with the cookies. I have 2 PHPSESSID's set, one for www.silverstripe.org, and one for silverstripe.org. Maybe there is something causing an error there.
