Hey Thorsten,

as i have written before that:

Code: Select all

36  * Timeout for the admin section, in minutes 
37  * 
38  * @var integer 
39  */ 
40 define('PMF_AUTH_TIMEOUT', 30); 
only works for the admin section not for the normal user frontend.
And "remember me" dont work for the frontend at least with ldap and secured Login.

I want to set a longer time out for the frontend section.

Hi,

it has also to work in the frontend as it shares the same code.

hmm, seems you are right...

Both admin section and frontend automatically logoff after are unknown time... (can`t say exactly how long it takes - feels something around a hour)
but i have set following:

Code: Select all

define('PMF_AUTH_TIMEOUT', 1440);
But logoff happens definitely before 24h are over.

Is there an other switch to set the timeout?

Hey Thorsten,

with the Internet Explorer 11 no Cookie was createt.
In Firefox is a Cookie but the session time out appears around a hour anyway.

I will make a bug report.
