Staying logged in forever (Forum)

How do you stay logged in for longer than an hour?
I just get automatically logged out over sometime, and it's annoying.

Wait... what?

You really need to learn to post with more detail in your questions.  Otherwise you will end up eventually being berated (rightfully so) by other members of this community... and likely myself.

Well, whatever you say. But I think my question should be clear enough,

When I do something else and have an Arch Forums tab open in a browser on a thread, after a while when I refresh, I notice that I am logged out automatically.
So I want this to stop. There's usually a forum feature that says "Stay logged in forever." So that the user does not automatically log out.

I guess the FluxBB back-end that is used doesn't implement this.

See, I would have had no possible clue whatsoever that you were talking about the forums.  Typically it is assumed that you are looking for advice on how to use arch linux here, and not a simple web page.

When you log in, there should be a checkbox that says to remember you for 180 days.

So I have to log out and log in again?
Wonderful.

And the title of my thread has "forum" in parenthesis, which I added for clarification.

EDIT: Actually, there's only something that says, "Log me in automatically each time I visit."

Okay, well that wasn't apparent?

Wonderful.

You could do it the first time you logged in, I think.
IIRC, with "Log me in automatically each time I visit." checked, I'm being asked to re-enter my credentials (i.e. I'm logged out) once a month. Works for me.
