    Question moerators - Please

    When I am writing a long post, it is coming from my heart. When I go to post it, The page tells me I cannot as I am logged out. This is frustrating to say the least ,as I am usually crying when I post personal stuff, that having been on this forum for a long time, I feel I can do. Please adjust the software to NOT log someone out if it is a long post - Auto- Restore does NOT always bring the post in its entirety back - usually only part. You folk do a Great job so please look into thjs issue.

    Hello Alex!

    When you log in, there is a little box with the words "Remember Me?" right underneath your login name and password. Please make sure you put your cursor on the box and left click. You should then see a check mark inside the box. This will keep you logged in whenever you come to the site. If you don't want to be kept logged in, like if you are using another person's pc, tablet, etc., just click on the words, "Log Out".

    I know it is very frustrating to write a long post and not be able to post it. It has happened to me and you are right, the auto-restore doesn't bring all of it back. I don't believe the software is set for a certain length of time when you are writing a post. I will forward your question to Mike, though and see if he might have any other ideas of a possible problem.

    I know you are still grieving the loss of your beloved Cynthia, but I also hope you have some days of peace when you know she is with the Lord.

    Hi alex :)

    I poked around in the settings and can't figure out why it's timing you out. The system is set to allow you to stay on for a full 24 hours before you get automatically logged out. I did tweak the auto restore settings so it should come on sooner (as soon as it would let me which is 20 seconds).

    Let me know if this happens again and I'll put a ticket in with our host to see if it might be a setting I'm not aware of.
    Question: Why can't I post links or pictures?
    Question: Why can't I have a signature, avatar, or profile picture?
    Question: What's wrong with my account?

    Answer: You are in the "registered users" user group. This group is very limited in what it can do. This will annoy spammers to no end Just keep posting once you have been registered for 30 days and have made 11 posts your account will be "unlocked".

    It's really easy to put someone on ignore and it's strongly recommended that you do so with people who's posts you don't like.

    Step 1 - log in
    Step 2 - click on the "settings" link
    Step 3 - click on the "edit ignore list" link on the left side of the screen
    Step 4 - type (or paste if you copied and pasted it) the username of the person you want to ignore
    Step 5 - click the "ok" button on the right of the screen

    Easy peasy and will lower your blood pressure. One important note though, this won't hide quoted posts. It's an oversight on the developers part and it's not an easy thing to "fix." So if someone quotes someone you have ignored, you'll see the quote.

    Alternatively when you click on a person's name and view their profile page, underneath their avatar, there is a option that says, "Ignore this person". Click that link and then click the yes button.
