Re: Is anyone else having weird cookie issues here?
I can confirm that the cookie format has changed. But I’m not sure when it happened. Clearing your cookies and then logging in again will fix this.
The maximum length these cookies will last is 2 weeks. This is set in the cookie contents, not just on the cookie expiry time.
If you *really* want to extend the cookie expiration then you can edit the contents of your cookie as well, the contents look something like this…
…depending on your browser.
If you set a distant expiry time on the cookie and also edit the second chunk of the cookie (which is an epoch time) to some high number you can get a fairly persistent cookie.
