On the same path, is there a timeout option or something? If I'm signed in and come back to the same browser session after a half hour or so (don't know the exact timeout) I hit refresh and it doesn't know who I am, making me sign in again.

I believe the first issue is fixed in our source tree, so it should be fixed in the next site update.

The timeout right now is, if memory serves, the ASP.NET standard 20 minute session timeout.

Brad, the timeout is horrible.

I was editing a Wiki page and lost everything because it would go back and ask me who I was at the login page and return me to the wiki page. However, the page was empty. This really needs to be fixed (maybe if the system remembers the current user it will be).

Very frustrating.

I posted a bug on this a few days ago. As a workaround, you can probably back up in your browser history and resave.
