in reply to Perlmonks 'Not logged in Error' - Proposal for fix

Perlmonks simply sets a cookie and whatever client you use remembers it for whatever hostname you use. There is no way to convince a browser by doing .htaccess magic or other server configuration so that the browser sends a cookie for www.perlmonks.org when it accesses perlmonks.org.

We could make http://perlmonks.org always redirect to http://www.perlmonks.org, but I'm not really convinced that there actually is a problem.

Re^2: Perlmonks 'Not logged in Error' - Proposal for fix (autocorrect perlmonks linking shortcuts in preview )

    99% of the problems could be fixed by autocorrecting perlmonks linking shortcuts in preview (and whatever processes chatterbox talk)

    The problem is folks typically use  [ http...perlmonks...node_id=... ] instead of  [id://...#] or rarely the  <a href="http...perlmonks..."> which results in unrelative links

    This could be easily fixed for new nodes

      I agree. I have done that in my forum software (with the possibility to turn it off), and it's really helpful

    Which is what I was hoping for!

    I am not so sure about that - For those more experienced, it certainly is not a problem. But for someone new to programming it might be.

    Wouldn't it make more sense to let those who know what they are doing go through a little more effort to achieve a couple of things ( such as post from multiple users using different domains ) and so on rather than forcing those who are relatively new to make sure they use relative links?

    Not by server configuration, but by changing the code.
    You could explicitly set the cookie domain to .perlmonks.org for http://perlmonks.org and http://www.perlmonks.org
