Was wondering if increasing the time limit before you are logged out or even offering a stay logged in option is possible.
I like to write long winded replies and it is quite annoying logging in then typing post just to have to back up, copy text, re-login, past text and submit post. Time limit must only be half hour or something like that(maybe an hour, I am quite slow sometimes...) but it could be a few hours at least imo.
The time limit is an hour. In the Member Profile section there is an option to remain logged in -- but it doesn't work in Safari for a reason we're yet to figure out.
Hope that helps.
there is an option to remain logged in
Yes I've tried that. It logs me in permanently everywhere EXCEPT the reply box so I'm not sure what the advantage of clicking on that option is?

Maybe it doesn't work properly on ubuntu either?
@SBE I don't have an ubuntu machine so I can't test on that unfortunately -- it does sound extremely odd though. If the "permanent login thing" is working correctly, it should mean that once you have logged in, you can then turn your laptop off, turn it back on again, open a browser, go to Travelfish and you'll still be logged in. Does that happen for you?
We're working on a pop-up thing similar to what AirAsia do to warn you, so hopefully that will address your situation.
-As long as I don't shut down TF by clicking on the red x in the top left hand corner, I'm still logged in when I reboot the computer.
-Clearing cookies logs me out
-Other tests are more time consuming because I have to wait at least an hour each time and make sure it's not 59 minutes otherwise it proves nothing. I rechecked to see if I could access PMs just now after leaving the tab open approximately one hour and the answer is yes but I wasn't using a stopwatch so I'll have to redo that test later. Previous less rigorous experiments and my eyes tell me I'm logged in all the time at the top of the page.
-I think both ubuntu and safari are based on unix but windows isn't.
-When I tried to post the above I had to log in again so clicking on PMs doesn't reactivate the answer box. Luckily I took the precaution of doing "select all"+"copy" before hitting the preview button because I knew that might happen.
Again I just wrote up an extensive informative reply to a post only to find that I've been timed out and have to sign in again. Reply/edit totally lost! So frustrating making the effort and it's simply gone. Any way to fix this timeout issue? Keep us logged in while composing/editing please! Lonely Planet Thorn Tree (your main competition) allows edits with no timeout until someone else replies. Please adjust, Cheers
