Longer/No Timeout in Admin Panel

Post by ElMuggs on Thu Apr 05, 2012 12:42 am

So this wouldn't really take much to implement, all it means is that instead of being sent back to the front page of Admin Panel after 10 or so minutes when you hit 'SAVE' you either give a longer time or get rid of the timeout all together.

Basically it stops people from losing all their work if they've been working on something in templates, skinning, tweaking css, making Widgets etc. and hit save without copying their work first.

For a coder like myself there's nothing worse then putting hours of work into something only to have it all lost because Forumotion timed out.

As far as I can tell there is no reason or advantage in sending people back to the main page instead of saving changes.

After all if you get a unlimited time to make a post, why can you not have the same when making a Widget?

I didn't even know that it did it did that, but then again, I don't spend long amounts of time in the Admin panel.
If it DOES do that, I totally support. It would be horrible to be working on something for 10 minutes and then loose it all.
