When I'm editing pages on the wiki my login session often times out after a short time. This short time is not usually long enough to finish editing. Sometimes I've barely logged in and I find my session has already expired.

Can we extend the time limit please ?

Sorry for not noticing your post.

Any suggestion on how long the logon expiry should be set to, or what's the maximum time you'll need to edit an article?

I know that having a session expire in the middle of an edit is one of the biggest frustrations working on a wiki. On the other hand, the session timeout is supposed to reduce the chance bogus edits when a registered user has left their terminal unattended.

Assuming the likelihood of the latter is small, I will try setting the session timeout to 15 minutes unless there is a better suggestion.

That should be ample, thanks!
