I have a question regarding Cookies.
I’m kind of lost about how they work.
As a source for my information I used: This link
That being said this is what I don’t get.
If I go to the URL of my loginpage I get two cookies being set.
One for the url and one for the date.
When I login and check the remember me box it get’s 3 more cookies for my login, plugins and wp-admin
Now this works. Even if I close my browser and go to the page again I’m still logged in.
The following gets me questioned.
If I logout all my cookies are deleted except the one containing the URL.
If I want to login again it doesn’t remember me at all. No name and no password.
To be sure I didn’t F**K things up myself I used a test account with a clean install and a clean database.
I used different browsers and different versions and Mac and Windows machines.
So please can somebody clear this for me because I have no idea why I can’t get a user to be remembered.
