I just noticed, in my new Netgear router settings, that by default, the connections setting was set for "Dial On Demand". I went ahead and changed it to "Always On" as my DSL is always on.
I was noticing that my email was disconnecting after awhile and my first email "Send" would yield an error. Then I'd hit send/receive and off the message would go. So my connection was waking up. Let's see if this helps all around.

Well, the change I made in my router (in the previous message) didn't help. I got logged out automatically again. (sigh)
Oh. I guess I'm not the only one.
I can't Quick Reply either or it makes me log back in again.
It is a very well known free app for cleaning up useless and unused files. It is completely spam free. It is easy to use but can also be as advanced as necessary once you understand it.
Be forewarned.... it will completely clean out your IE saved cookies and ALL temporoay internet files. You will have to re-log in to any accounts.
But I always do this about every couple of months or less any way. I have used it for years.
This solved my problems with LX forums log off and I had it for over 1 week and I had also tried several other routes.

Hmmm... if we really believe it's something in our individual cookies then why are we all experiencing this at the same time now? I don't have any other sites that are doing this but lxforums.
As far as ccleaner; I'm using Firefox, not IE. It's easy to empty all temporary files and cookies. I just don't like doing it because it resets so many stored logins.
But if DMAG is supremely confident that this action would cure the lxforums issues, I don't have a problem doing it.
If you know CCleaner well enough you can chose what cookies ot delete. And by process of elemination you can "Exclude" the cookies you need to keeep your other stored log-ins. Of course this will take some trial and error.
Ccleaner will also dump your "index.dat" file which may hold the source of the problem.
There are also some freeware "index.dat" viewers to see what is in it.
Any issues that we had are fixed on LXF side. Any remaining logout issues are either due to cookie remnaints or cache on your browser. I can't vouch for any third party apps (for cleaning) but if others have had luck, who knows?
Ok guys. I'm going to try one more experiment before any other effort. I went to my wife's computer and logged in to Lxforums on hers. She uses IE7 and I'm using Firefox. We'll see if it logs out or stays logged in on hers. If it logs out on hers, I will be more suspicious of a central problem, such as our 1.5 month old router. If it hangs in there on her computer, I will be more suspicious of my PC and cookies/temp files.
I did check an that ccleaner does work with Firefox too. So I may first try the old fashioned way of using Firefox to delete everything and if that fails, try the utility. Strange that there are many of us with these issues. I'll try to keep you all posted with the results.
If you log-in is maintained there, then it is not your router (which I seriously doubt anyway, unless you have an advanced firewall configuration that can block web sites cookies, but you would have to know that because you set it up).
Well I got mine working! Cleaned cookies, cache and whatever else was recommended!!
I think I'm good now. I stayed logged in. Sorry for all the drama. As an IT vet I just had to know the cause without jumping on to what some would seem to be obvious. Geek!
I don't think it had anything to do with the Cookies though (since I deleted a bunch of those already). I think it had to do with the offline cache file in Firefox.
Glad it is working for you now.
Mine is working now, thank you very much... That extra click was just KILLING me
