Login Length (Cookies?)
Well, on my forum it every time I go onto it, it pretty much makes me login every time, like if I leave it for an hour and come back I have to login again, but on MyBBExtras, I've been logged in for like months, how can I change my forum to not log me out and to keep me logged in for a longer time?

Delete your browser cookies. Whatever browser your using, google how to delete site specific browser cookies. Then the next time you login you should be asked if you want to remember the login details for that site.

Oh.. yeah.. I know that.. I've done that heaps, I thought you meant somehow on the forums side.
It works fine for your site every time, but my site logs me out like hourly.
Even on other computers, and it happens to my friends and users too.

Won't that break the entire logging in?

Yes, but maybe that's what you need. Just means everyone will need to login again, might not be a bad thing.

@Switchbladed Your profile says you have MyBB version 1.6.6? I used to have the same problem, but only in Firefox. The bug was fixed in 1.6.8.
