    • State changed from “new” to “wontfix”

    Kyle, We've thought about this on the team and have discussed it in IRC quite a bit. The consensus seems to be that a user doesn't really care if they have a certain cookie set, but they do care about what that cookie causes to happen for them. For example, setting a login cookie would have a section saying "Welcome, Username" instead of saying "Please Register/Login".

    So I'm going to mark this as wontfix unless we come up with some other compelling reasons.

    I'm having some issues, and I think I need this too.

    The behaviour I want to test is that when a user logs in, and they visit the site again later (i.e. when the session has expired) they are automatically logged in.

    On my application when you login you are remembered for that period via the session, and permanently by using cookies. This is automatic. When a user logs out their session is destroyed, as well as the cookie.

    As I can't destroy the session how can I test this, other than by testing whether the cookie exists?
