Hi there,

I was wondering how/where I can change the default log-in time (time to stay logged in) in SMF ? Currently it's set to 1 hour and I'd like to change that. Do I need to set in a specific php file or is there a menu in Admin?

Thanks in advance!

Hi @Kindred, thank you! The funny thing is, I did check this section after I had read in a post for an earlier version of SMF that it was supposed to be there. But for me, there was no dropdown menu visible. But last night, when I read your answer on my mobile, there it was! That made me curious.
Then I went to see what was happening via Dev Tools and there is a CSS script showing (cookie banner) I wasn't familiar with (see attachment).

Edit: Seems like it's caused by the Ghostery add-on. I just temporarily shut it off and now the options are visible. The actual culprit is the anti-advertisement option (button in the center)
