Is it possible to somehow set the user not to be automatically logged out of the website? Like Facebook?
I think that, especially in the beginning, the need to register is an unnecessary hurdle.
The user receives an e-mail notification of a new post, clicks on it, wants to respond, but cannot because he is not logged in. And a lot of users can see it, and they'd rather shut down the site than remember their credentials.
What do you think about it, is it working? Does it have any problems?
Thanks for the discussion.
The logged-in (authorized) status is directly connected to the browser you've used to login. It stores cookies and keeps you logged-in for a long period. So you should either check the "Remember me" checkbox in the login form or always use the same browser (sometimes the email app opens links in different browsers).
And a lot of users can see it, and they'd rather shut down the site than remember their credentials.
You can use the "Save password" feature of the browser.
