Remember me

There are number of hacks for "remember me" feature. Most famous is by GIJOE.

Can we extend this feature to have something what LinkedIn (and many other sites) already using.

* Once you login, you should have full access until session timeouts.
* After timeout, you have read-only access to your allowed contents.
* It prompts to login again if you want to do something transactional - say submit post.

Can we have built into new CORE?

Thanks,

I'd like to see this feature, but it should also be optional for the admin to use, perhaps a switch in the backend.

Re: Remember me

Yeah, webmaster should be able to turn it on-off using some config parameter. Let me evaluate the implementation part. I've a feeling that it may become a big change running across core and modules.

Thanks,

Re: Remember me

Since it's a potential security risk, I think it should be "off" by default.

Re: Remember me

Is "Remember Me" enabled here? It doesn't seem to be working.

Or maybe it is working. I think I had to log out and in again to get the right cookie after changing a profile setting.
