Stay Open Plugin

The Stay Open plugin keeps your session alive until you close the browser

Written by Gary Mort/Modified and Extended by Joseph Bui

 

The Stay Open Plugin keeps your logged in session alive until you close the browser. Whether you are working in the frontend or the backend, return after a break and you will be right where you left off.


It will keep your global session alive, but it does not override the security feature set in the Joomla core which sets an expiration time via a token for create/edit an article/ module.


The original version was for frontend use only. The new version of the Stay Open Plugin now supports the backend too!

 

Code borrowed from the Remember Me plugin. The Remember Me function sets a cookie which will never expire, the StayOpen plugin sets a cookie that will expire when the browser closes.

 

WE NEED YOUR HELP! If you find this plugin useful, please review it on the Joomla extensions site. http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/tools/site-management-tools/8690/details

Thanks!
