Domain name changes
Posted by potatono 12 years ago
People seem to be having trouble with cookies because http://www.linkfilter.net and http://linkfilter.net seem to keep separate cookies (when did that start?). I've made www.linkfilter.net redirect to linkfilter.net so that it shouldn't be a problem anymore..  
 
But... There are some clever users (linkfilter has the most clever users) who have used www.linkfilter.net and plain 'ol linkfilter.net to distinguish between different users sharing a computer.. So for them i've created mr.linkfilter.net, mrs.linkfilter.net, and ms.linkfilter.net. Each one of those will have it's own cookie.  
 
Is that agreeable with everyone??  
LOL
shigpit: "Hey Wifey! Want a cookie? Too bad, you'll have to log in yourself. Hahahaha!"
...
deathburger: Hey, that's pretty cool. Thanks potatono!
deathburger: By the way, if anyone wants the Greasemonkey scripts I've made to work in these new urls, just say so. It's a snap to fix, but if nobody's going to use it... :)  
 
Greasefilter will work as-is.
..
blarp: can we get dr.linkfilter.net? :)  
 
for what it's worth, i've always just used linkfilter.net and been mildly annoyed when i followed a link on the site to www.linkfilter.net/something.. so, thanks!
deathburger: I had a thing in Greasefilter that fixed those.. I guess it's obsolete now though.  
 
btw, setting the cookie domain to "linkfilter.net" instead of "http://linkfilter.net" will make the cookie work across the whole domain, be it www.linkfilter.net, users.linkfilter.net, or bork.bork.bork.linkfilter.net. That's how I have the Greasefilter cookie set up, else it wouldn't be available to the script.
blarp: oh yeah.. I remember trying out the greasefilter script a few firefox installs ago.. I should put those in again. Thanks for the reminder. :)
