Braindead MovableType Cookies

You know that nifty feature in MovableType that allows you to choose "Yes" to "Remember Personal Info?" It's braindead.

It only remembers your information for that article. Safari had over 500 cookies in its cookie cache… for 12 blogs.

I've posted a query in the MT support forum. Let's see what happens.

Update: the answer has already been found in a previous post (not sure why my search didn't find it :-P).

Here is the answer..

Basically, it requires changing:

setCookie('mtcmtauth', f.author.value, now, '', HOST, '');
setCookie('mtcmtmail', f.email.value, now, '', HOST, '');
setCookie('mtcmthome', f.url.value, now, '', HOST, '');

to

setCookie('mtcmtauth', f.author.value, now, '/', HOST, '');
setCookie('mtcmtmail', f.email.value, now, '/', HOST, '');
setCookie('mtcmthome', f.url.value, now, '/', HOST, '');

MT users should make this change both the individual archive template and your comment listing template. Then rebuild their individual archives. Joy. 😛

  1. I was hopeful that this would work on my site, but it didn't.
