|cookies not working in wordpress|
| 10:59 am on Nov 2, 2010 (gmt 0)|
I am having difficult time handling cookies on a wordpress theme I am developing.
The site needs to drop a cookie on visitor computer so we know that the visitor has opted-in. after then we have to check that cookie value to be 1990 (eg) and then show the membership contents.
I know we can do this by using wp login system too, but for some reasons we do not want to use it. I have to do it thru cookie system so the user doesn't have to login everytime they visit.
I tried adding cookie with path/domains and without it too, but both do not work properly. sometimes it writes the cookie and does not read. sometimes it reads the old cookie.
please please help.

Most likely you are setting an invalid date string, so it's defaulting to a session cookie? Let's see the code of how you set the cookie.

Yeah I know I am doing something wrong. here is the code. I am using to set the cookie and retrieve the cookie in wordpress theme
retrieving this cookie
I read somewhere that cookies work with path and domains only in WordPress and WP doesn't allow the cookies to work without path and domain. I tried that way also, but no luck.
