i have a member site, and would like people who have signed in and then idle for, say 20 mins, to be automatically logged out (well for their session to expire)


Cant find anything in the documentation, can anyone help or suggest anything ?

Many Thanks.

Hello Ruckus!

you can use next code to set up cookie lifetime
SetCookie ('ftype','TYPE1',time()+$COOKIE_LIFE);
where $COOKIE_LIFE is in seconds.

Best regards!
