cite (from manual):

"Depending on forums setup, user login can expire in different time. Usually it expires within 1-2 hours, but administator can also make more longer expire"...

How to do it? People wants from me to change it.

Thx for help!

This setting is defined in $cookie_expires option. $cookie_renew options sets amount of the time, after which $cookie_expires will be enlarged automatically, if user is on forums near the expiring time.

2592000 = 1 month.

Be sure to set unique $cookiename also.

$cookielang_exp is an old setting and doesn't mean anything, in general.
