ALERT! Note: Do NOT use this for TWiki 4.0 and beyond, use the built in sessions support instead

After you register yourself on a computer, you never need to login again. This plugin adds a cookie to your machine that will identify you for all future accesses to your twiki. This is very useful in intranet situations.

Feb2003 release

To get a version of the UserCookiePlugin for the latest release, download and save the UserCookiePlugin.pm file as SessionPlugin.pm And the put the UserCookiePlugin.txt file into your Plugins web dir You can ignore the rest of the files mentioned here as they are for the previous release smile

I have updated the cvs version to work with the Jan2004 Beta

Syntax Rules

There is no special syntax. you may need to change the cookie expireation date to use the format that your WebServer requires (I found that IIS's date format changed depending on the version and localization setting.)

UserCookiePlugin Settings

  • One line description, is shown in the TextFormattingRules topic:
    • Set SHORTDESCRIPTION = Identify users with a persistent cookie created at the time of registration.

Plugin Installation Instructions

  • Install the patched versions of register, TWiki.pm & Plugins.pm
  • Download the ZIP file from the Plugin web (see below)

  • Test if the plugin is correctly installed:
