    Default Auto Logout

    I've read the tutorial on BV's login system. My question is, is there an auto logout? I know there's a logout button, but let's say, a member went out of the secured pages, sort of clicked a public page. Will he/she be automatically logged out? Thank you.

    In this post, and all of your previous posts ... why don't you first try implementing something to see for yourself how things work rather than ask many questions without ever actually doing?

    What is your Domain name, or a URL to your website?

    No, there isn't such a feature. BUT, why should a member be logged out just because he visited a "public" page ???

    Hello, well it's because I like to think things over before I start something, whether it's feasible or not, doable or not, can I do it or not, and so on and so forth. Unlike others, I'm not a web programmer, I'm more into design, so I'd like to know first if what I have in mind is doable or not.

    Hi Naval, it's because the protected pages contain custom car designs that I don't want others, even members to copy or spread out (sort of for your eyes only). Here's how the site works out - prospected members will have to email me for the username and password, they won't have to signup. Members are 'super select' few who are car design enthusiasts and possible customers. Thank you.

    What I'm saying is that there is no reason why one of these "trusted" members should be logged out automatically, if, while visiting the members only pages, they also visit (among them) also a "public" page.

    Yes you're right. But in my case, even competitors can disguise themselves as "trusted" members so, I just don't want to give them (competitors) any chance to copy designs. Or should I say make life difficult for them to copy if it can't be avoided. But thanks a lot.

    What I'm saying is that someone that already has the login details, can login in at any time again. So what you are asking is meaningless.

    That's exactly what I'm saying - make life difficult for them by logging in again and again every time they veer out of secured pages. Sorry, odd isn't it? :)

    Thanks again.

    If this is what you want, there is a simple solution:

    1. Make the "public" pages php

    Add in all public pages, in Start of Page, the following code:

    <?php
    session_start();
    unset($_SESSION['username']);
    ?>

    Wow that's great! In this case, I should put the login form in all public pages, right? Thanks!

    What about timing out? Like in this forum, I'm being logged out after few minutes.

    No, just put a link to the login page.
    To automatically be logged out after a ceratin time period you would need to modify both the login page code AND the Protect Page code that exists in all protected pages. Requires some PHP knowledge.

    Ok I'll go for the link to login page. Thanks so much for the help.
