It wasn't clear if this post should be in the Professional section, so I plonked it here, mods please move if the wrong call...
So, I've been working on a website under Wordpress, as in developing a theme, that would hopefully work on old machines including our beloved Atari's. Everything works great as far back as at least Netscape 3 on the Mac, and on our Atari using CAB 2.7 (sadly 1.5 won't even accept a doctype declaration before the html tag rendering it useless) the site displays almost perfectly, woohoo! Fonts really need to be set to the system font by the user in the preferences (nothing bad my site is doing, just the rendering of small text is nasty on any other setting on the Atari), a couple of minor alignment issues and it seems it's not smart enough to render white text on a black background when told, but both of these I can work around.
This was all much better than I dared hope for but then I ran into a big problem...
In order to allow the user to post to the site and do a few other things, they have to be logged in.
This means Cookies.
I discovered that even if I set CAB to accept cookies, and it seemingly does, Wordpress claims the browser doesn't support them or they are turned off.
I noticed there are 2 settings for how CAB handles cookies, if I type http://cab.ovl
in the address bar I get a bunch of settings for the ovl file I'm using to connect via Sting (I forget which version but I think it was by Oliver somebody...) and it has 2 settings for accepting cookies, one of which is to let CAB handle it. That's the setting I was using. I tried changing it to "always accept" in this ovl vs "always accept" in the CAB control panel, and now I don't get the error message thrown up by Wordpress, but I'm still not logged in either, I just get returned to the login page.
Can anyone help?
