Hi,

I am having a problem with one of my surveys. The survey has several questions and for some users it takes more than 30 minutes to complete. The survey is actually timing out on users after 30 minutes. Please help how to disable this time out feature.

Thanks a lot in advance.

Naveed

Pre 1.87, you can change the session duration with the $sessionlifetime setting in config.php.

As of 1.87, this can be set in the admin panel --> Global settings --> General tab.
Cheers,

I don't think so. Session time-outs are triggered by the server. Only problems a firewall might cause is loading certain Javascript libraries or the like.
