The Stay Open plugin keeps your logged in session alive until you close the browser.
Whether you are working in the frontend or the backend, return after a break and you will be right where you left off.
It will keep your global session alive, but it does not override the security feature set in the Joomla core which sets an expiration time via a token for create/edit an article/ module.
The original version was for frontend use only. The new version of the Stay Open Plugin now supports the backend too!
Code borrowed from the Remember Me plugin. The Remember Me function sets a cookie which will never expire, the StayOpen plugin sets a cookie that will expire when the browser closes.
Instructions for use:
-Download, install, and enable the Stay Open Plugin (User - Stay Open (Remember login until browser closes)
-Download, install, and enable the RememberMeBackend plugin (System Remember Me Backend)
-Enable the Joomla core System-Remember me plugin
-Set a short session time, say 15 minutes, in Global Configuration-->System--->Session Lifetime
-Open the Stay Open Plugin (User - Stay Open (Remember login until browser closes) and select the mode you want in Plugin Parameters. You can set it to work for the frontend, backend, or both
