    Hi
    I don't think you can, I think there is a timeout set. Having said that
    if you use a nntp client, no timeouts

    Leave a browser window open. You can then open others browser windows which will be logged in. But even this method has its limits, a time limit (a few hours or so). After that you may have to delete the cookies from this site to be able to log in again.

    instead of Firefox, use Thunderbird and point it to support-forums.novell.com

    sleepy,

    > support-forums.novell.com


    Which is the old server but redirected. Currently you can use
    forums.opensuse.org or forums.novell.com which are the two mirrored NNTP
    servers.

    I don't understand this policy. Can anyone from OpenSUSE explain why we can't at least stay logged in for 24 hours? It actually creates a heavier load to keep logging everyone out, thus redirecting them to login pages, confirmation pages and then back to their previously viewed page. What's the reasoning behind this?

    It could be related to this
    openSUSE Forums - View Single Post - control session timeout?

    One thing that bugs me is that I can't jump right to the login page.

    I've accepted that I have to login each time. But why does a link to the login page redirect you to the forums front page where you have to click on Login to get back to the login page?

    Firefox saves my username and password, so linking right to the login would be good. One extra click is not a crisis, but it is irritating to not have such a simple thing.

    Yes. But that begs the question: What is the benefit to you/me/the openSUSE
    community to be tied to the Novell's iChain?

    From where I sit it seems to be nothing more than an hourly frustration--that
    is, of no benefit to me (or you).

    Google has (I think) a two or three week log in persistence. Perhaps NOVL's
    share price could track GOOG's more closely if the former emulated more of the
    latter's policies more closely. (Including a safer distance from Old Predatory
    himself, MSFT.)
