    I have a couple of questions about user sessions and logging in.

    1.  When I check "Remember me on this computer" when logging in, my session still expires after a while and I have to log in again. 

    2.  Is there a way to set the length of the time-out on a user's session? 

    I've looked through the forums and the developer documentation but still can't seem to locate any useful information on these topics.  Any direction would be appreciated.  (I'm using version 3.1 SP 2.)

    Thanks.  Wendy

    Hello Wendy Derstine,

    You can achieve that just by changing a key in the web.config (timeout). The following example will set the expiration time to a day:

    <authentication mode="Forms"
         <forms name=".ASPNET" loginUrl="~/sitefinity/login.aspx" protection="All" timeout="1440" path="/"/> 

    Hope this helps!
