I would like to know where there is a setting for extending the session timeout while editing the content and development. The annoying thing is that it does not give you a warning and will log you out losing your work if you didn't save. I understand it is for security but right now it is just me and I get frustrated I have to log back in after I go get a drink.
I am a novice so it might frustrating for you if I don't understand (I'm even more a novice in ASP.NET and I have a hunch the answer way lay there.
Thank you in advance. Merci d'avance.
You might want to checkout the attribute executionTimeout of the HTTPRuntime element in your web.config file. This is the configuration file for asp.net applications so also for Umbraco. Find more info at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/e1f13641.aspx
The link is dead.
This link should give you the information you need:
Microsoft have marked this one as archived, but the recommended link is the broken one which was originally posted!
Just in case the link disappears again, it says that the default value for ExecutionTimeout is 110 seconds. The value is ignored if <system.web><compilation debug="true">
Your reply is much appreciated!
There is an appsetting in your web.config that you may also want to try changing:
<add key="umbracoTimeOutInMinutes" value="20" />
Thank you so much for your response.
Pardon my ignorance, but I assume the change needs to be made on ASP.NAT on the server, correct. Because I do not host or manage the server. A pro set up the site for me to manage just the content but I turned developer and am having fun. All I have access to is Umbraco.
If that's the case (it is on the server) should I ask the guys to change that?
Thank you so much again.
Both of the suggested settings can made in the web.config file located in the root of your website. You can make the can make the changes using any plain-text editor such as notepad.
I got it. Thanks for your help. I appreciate it!

I thought the 'keepalive' iFrame would prevent you getting logged out?
We also have observed users getting logged out after for example 25 min of inactivity.
Looking at the code, i see that if the keepalive iFrame fails once it will stay broken.
