Solved What are these cookies used for?

Post by Flerex on September 8th 2014, 4:28 pm

Hi!

I would like to know what are these cookies used for:


  • _utma
  • _utmb
  • _utmc
  • _utmz
  • fa_subdomain_forumdomain_com_data
  • fa_subdomain_forumdomain_com_sid
  • fa_subdomain_forumdomain_com_t


I know one of those cookies save any information related with the new/no new posts management because when you use other browser it might "forget" some new posts that you haven't read yet.

Thanks.

Hello Flerex,

I am not sure on all of them, but these are my findings :
data : Contains data on the user, when you decode the URI it's easier to read.
- If you tick log me in automatically it stores data
- Stores the User ID
- Contains something on "Posts" and "Last" ( can't really tell you what that's for scratch )

t : Stores visited topic ID
Everytime I visit a topic the data is updated. Looks to store the topic IDs and the time the topic was viewed ?

sid : Your session id
This keeps you logged in and able to use the Admin Panel. If your session expires a new sid will be generated.


That's all I know, I don't recall seeing those other ones you posted.
