I have this very strange problem where I keep getting logged out. It happens every time I use my portal. It doesn't matter which user id either. I can be working as admin and modifying settings and once I submit some changes, occassionally I will get
logged out and have to log in and start over. Has this happened to anyone else. I don't want this to be a problem for my customers.

How long a time are we talking about?
There are limitations, not by DotNetNuke but by the IIS functionality and sessions that are out of our control. I have had my clients say the same thing and I tell them do one of a few things to help this problem -
Either put your content into notepad first, not logged in, and then copy and paste into the module (obviously not practical for images) But things that linking externally, I still tend to copy and paste into notepad - not just for DotNetNuke but for the
forums, my blogs, whatever, since there have been too many situations where technology has let me down.
Save your work frequently and go back in and edit it. If you get sidetracked, phone rings, someone interrupts, updating at that point of disruption will not affect your work.
If your work is live, copy the information, or export the information, and then bring back in with administrator view only so your work isn't live until you want it to be.
Any images you are using, do a few together, zip them up, then use the file manager to upload them, and it will unzip them automatically.
I'm not sure if you're aware of this - but inactivity on the screen is similar to online banking, other functions that require *admin* access. They will time out, without doubt.
These are a few tips I've found that make working with dnn a little more resourceful timewise for myself and my clients.
Hope this helps.

Well, so far I am the only one using the site. The number of requests and time varies. It can happen immediately after I logon or after being logged on for 10 minutes or so. The only consistent thing is that it happens every time I use the site.

Do you have something going on with your cookies or something?
Has this been always happening or suddenly started?
