Logo Logout and css admin

Hi Joe,
I have some questions for you:
- My siteLogo doesn't link to the home page, How can I add an url to it? I can't understand, there isn't a field in Site settings.
Must I modify it directly in the skin?
- Can I modify the time of session for logout? Example: if I login and then close my browser, if I come back to my site the day after, there is my login yet. Why?
- I have a strange layout in the admin of my site, but only for the online version. I can't insert a picture in this post, how can I show you it?

Thanks

I also noticed that my local developer copy of mojoPortal has a non-tabbed site settings layout but my online site has tabbed site settings. It's almost like the tab control is defaulting to no tabs locally?

In my case it's the contrary: non-tabbed site settings layout online, it's tabbed in my local copy.
The solution?

I've noticed the tabs issue too. The cause is if your development machine is not connected to the internet, because it loads the YUI scripts and CSS from the google CDN instead of locally. You could configure it to load them locally but then you'd have to download the YUI scripts and put the YUI build folder somehwere beneath /ClientScript then configure user.config settings to tell it the appropriate path. There are old settings in web.config with the path that used to be correct when Joe was inlcuding the YUI scripts with mojoPortal and there is a setting whether to use the google CDN.

Re: Logo Logout and css admin

And for this question? Can someone help me?

Can I modify the time of session for logout? Example: if I login in my site and then close my browser, if I come back to my site the day after, there is my login yet. Why? Where can I change it?

The login cookie is only persistent across sessions if you check the "Remember Login" box when you login. 

You may be able to adjust the timeout of the cookie from Web.config:

<authentication mode="Forms">
<forms name=".mojochangeme" protection="All" timeout="50000000" path="/" cookieless="UseCookies" />
</authentication>

Hope it helps,

Joe

My "Remember Login" box is unchecked...so do I try with the timeout value? does it indicate when the cookie must die?

Re: Logo Logout and css admin

On my installations of mojoPortal, if I don't check the Remember Login box then my session is lost upon closing the browser and I have to login again when I open the new browser. Now maybe in Firefox if you restore a previous session it may preserve your login, but thats a feature of the browser not mojoportal.

For further reading about ASP.NET Forms authentication and cookie timouts see these articles or google.

Yes, with IE and Safari it does run, mybe it is a Firefox option. Thanks

But I have more a problem: My siteLogo doesn't link to the home page, How can I add an url to it? I can't understand, there isn't a field in Site settings.
