Default Making it so they don't have to re-login everytime

I have some visitors complaining about having to re-login everytime they come back.

How difficult is it to keep them logged in until they log out. Maybe set a cookie that gets read upon return and creates the session?

Sorry i can not help you with a solution, but i would be verry carefull
with this. What happens if somebody stays logged in at the office or
such? Especially when you store creditcard information it can lead to
verry unpleasant situations. Who will be responsible if other people
start bying on his account?

Cheers Eddie

Yup, I understand the possible ramifications.

I NEVER store credit card information on my records, I just don't want that responsibility, and the user takes responsibility for their account in our terms of service.

If you change inlcude/check_useraccount.php: from

Code:
session_register("login"); session_register("login_type");

to

Code:
session_set_cookie_params(15552000); session_register("login"); session_register("login_type");

That will save their session for 6 months - but I would warn against it for all the same reasons as highlighted.

Would it be possible to add a check box next to the login box
[X] Remember my Password

?

That's a good idea, and then maybe have a javascript popup warning when they check it.

I'll work on this tonight and see what I can come up with, don't see why it wouldn't be doable.

session_set_cookie_params(15552000);

Adding that does not seem to work to keep sessions.

I can do the logistics of the checkbox, and what not, but I'm having difficulty getting it to set the extended cookie, and I need to do that first.

Definitely doesn't work, any other thoughts?
