Ok i just set it to 1

Edit: Oh man I'm stupid. Open Elinks -> Escape -> Settings -> Option Manager -> ECMA Script -> Open (with Space) -> Activate -> Edit -> 1. If you want to see javascript errors check Script Error Reporting to 1.

Let's see if it works

The dialog you have there is options for enabling scripting but you want to cancel out of that and highlight the "edit" below with left or right arrow keys THEN you can hit enter and edit this option. You want to make sure it has a "1" there. That would enable javascript. "0" would disable it.

Gosh, how you get logged out that fast? Shouldn't be that fast logging you out. Must be something else, like an idle setting.

Thanks for the reply

not fast... It keeps me logged for quiet some time, like 15 minutes

There's no idle detection cause in Iceweasel(firefox) i just load it and leave it there! of course i prefer to run a text based on my server cause it takes a lot less resources.

one of the frames auto-refreshes to check for new messages..

Try this: In options, "Document -> Browsing -> Document Meta Refresh" set to 1.

That option is already 1 for default

chrism01 no idea what that is

What else could I do?

I don't mind making another account there if any of you is into webdesign or something, it's a gay site by the way

Sorry, I've exhausted my brain on this one.

By the way, did you save all your changes? You might need to save changes and restart ELinks.

Is there a text based browser with a auto-refresh option?
