Thanks for looking into this and visiting the message board. I couldn't figure anything remotely connected with the profiles and the cookie, either, but as it was exactly right after I removed the 6000 profiles that people started complaining, it had me wondering.
I use Firefox, and I never had a problem with the cookie not working after deleting the profiles, but when I tested it with IE8, even though the cookie gets written, when I close IE and re-open it, my username and password is not there. My wife's computer with IE8 works just fine, but I did have to delete her message board cookie and let it reset it before it would remember her logon.
I will contact you about the plugins. I definitely like the idea of a plugin compared to me editing the code in the main files. My core files are so hacked up and edited, that that is the only reason I have not upgraded a LONG time ago.
: Hi Rus.
: Cookie and profile datafile are not in any way related. Cookies are
: always sent on each request to the scripts (as long as the
: anything "profile". This at least is (and was) the
: fact for unmodified scripts.
: However, handling of cookies does depend on how the domain is
: spelt. E.g.: cookies sent by www.yourdomain.com and
: yourdomain.com are considered different cookies.
: Regarding your special requirement of limiting the number of posts
: per day.
: Such things can be accomplished by custom plugins these days.
: Plugin would be future proof because it would not require
: modification to the core scripts and thus could be reused for
: future versions. ....
: Or maybe such a feature could become part of official release as a
: sponsored feature.
: Feel free to drop me a note via Contact page if you're interested
: in either of these suggestion.
: I'm not at all against custom solutions. We've implemented tons of
: custom solutions. Only I'm against modifications to core
: scripts. With modifications one is always stuck sooner or later.
: Other ways of customisation are more future proof, esp. because
: we have various ways to hook in custom code one way or the
