    No. I'll try it.

    Also you might try
    1. clearing your cookies and then logging on again and click the remember me box.
    2. Try a different browser or check your browser setting to see if it is refreshing or deleting your cookies every so often.

    That too if it doesn't work. Thank you!

    If I reply to a post and start composing a response, if I take too long I start getting pop ups about failed access to the server (something like that). My logon has timed out. There doesn't seem to be a way to just logon again without getting right out of everything. I've noticed if I hit preview often enough it doesn't time out. I can just carry on and shut down the pop ups but it's a pain. Is there a better way?

    If I read a long post, stop for coffee or otherwise don't do anything for a while it times out. Fair enough. The problem is that the page still shows as if I'm logged on and I can't see any way to logon and stay where I am.

    Thanks, Sparko. I have seen the is 3 issue myself. I guess I'll have to be more careful on where I click.

    Any chance this can be disabled in a thread title?

    For now, the best way around that is to make sure there's some text BESIDES just the reference -- I had the same trouble, so we added some words to the "scripture verse only" thread title.

    Beyond that, Sparko may have a solution.

    In the meantime, as my budder Rogue pointed out, you just have to click on the little blue thing at the beginning of the line...

    I had to figure out all by myself that I needed to tweak something in my settings so that I actually got a notification that someone had poked me.

    I guess that makes me one of the techs on staff around here, at least in dear rogue-y's opinion.

    Boy, is he wrong.
