Except on my old Samsung S3 with Chrome, Vivaldi,
even Firefox; they're always logged into the forum.

I know the forum is configured to expire after 1 hour,
but the difference seems to be in the browser in use.

But, I like Slimjet, so I'll just keep on logging in when requested. :)

I am never on that long so never tested it. But it surprises me that a browser can over ride the Forum settings. On the other had it might be cache or cookie related. But not sure of the mechanism.

I think some web browsers do a "keep alive" so would re-start the hour clock

I do not believe that tweak is available in Google Chrome and most likely Slimjet, derived from Google Chrome.

Not sure I like the idea of over-riding an admin setting for the Forum.
