The most annoying thing in the world is really getting into the groove when writing an article or story, then hitting save and losing EVERYTHING because Joomla has logged you out. Well no more! This plugin has saved me so much time and aggrivation.
Wonderful for site development as well. Never lose a change because of login timeouts again.
10 stars out of 5.
Keep up the great work!
You get back, and you hit that "save" button, and you are back to the sign on. Everything is lost, and you start to say those things that are not allowed in a review.
This little tool keeps you from facing that again, and that is all it does - your admin session just does not log off.
It is simple to install and activate - upload, go to the plug-ins, activate. No parameters, no maintenance. I do not know anything about support - it has never malfunctioned, caused any cross-module/plug-in problems.
It just works.
Of course, you would not want to have this running if you do not secure your workstation - but who does that? I mean, you don't REALLY have your password taped on your monitor, and your workstation autolocks, right? Good lord, man! I work out of my home office, and I have that level of security.
I use this on every site I install, and fully intend to paypal some money to the author when we are making money (we can talk about starting a not for profit business in the worst recession of our time some other time).
I think that this should be rolled into Joomla! as a default option. It is absolutely one of the most vital extensions there are.
I have been a web developer for 12 years, and am a advanced Joomla! admin.
I still have to log in. I thought it would stop me having to login to the admin area?
So, I've been using this since it first showed up. I run it in live sites (because I'm crazy) with no problems. I don't know what bug fixes there have been, but I have yet to update my original.
