authorization - Remember me checkbox

Would it be possible to add some checkbox which says for example: "Remembe me" so that our users won't need to log-in each time they visit our forum or their session expires.

Try to set cookies in setup_options to expire in 10 years or more :).

Being more precise - $cookie_expires defines amount of seconds which cookie is set for.

We won't add checkbox or something like that in default version.

Can $cookie_expires be set on a user by user basis? i.e. if user "joe" signs in set $cookie_expires to 100000 but if user "bob" signs in set it to 5000?

It's possible to do manually in bb_plugins.php... via the code like

if($user_id==XX) $cookie_expires=100000;
if($user_id==XXX) $cookie_expires=5000;

Also it's possible to implement a new field under user's profile which will define some kind of such value, but I guess it would be a lot of programming work...
