    Default Login Question

    How can I set up so I don't have to login every time I come here?
    OS 11.0, KDE4, Firefox 3.0.

    Maybe this is a Firefox Question. I got FF set to remember PW and such, but that isn't it.

    Thanks.

    Not possible - at least not at the moment.

    This question has been widely discussed in the forum recently since the forum switch.

    You shouldn't have to login _every_ time you come here. The forum should remember you for around an hour. If you simply come back after 5 minutes or so and have been logged out then there is an issue.

    FAR too short..

    i think google mail allows TWO WEEKS (not that everything google is good
    but but but)..

    especially if you consider the FACT that i "enter" and read/write the
    forum via nntp WITHOUT signing in....think about that: i get the benefit
    of avoiding all the unnecessary but pretty fluff of winkies, blinkies
    and smilies...AND i don't have to prove who i am, OR give a secret
    handshake to participate..

    open and freedom comes in many varieties..

    This is simply not true, at least for me.

    I have the forums in an RSS reader (Akregator). When I open an item I have to log in to be able to see it in my favorite skin and showing my timezone and being able to add a post. Then I close the window.

    Going to the next RSS item I have to login again! All within a few minutes.

    When I leave such a window open, the new windows start loged in. This effect stops indeed after about an hour.

    We're aware of an issue with iChain sessions expiring arbitrarily that started sometime yesterday. It's been reported to the right contacts at Novell.
