#4774 closed defect (bug) (wontfix)

//links.org style URIs do not allow session cookie to be set correctly

I have noticed a bug on the Wordpress session login. While setting the blog URI to a link.net as opposite to http://link.net all the blog's links become link.net/whatever which is the desired behavior.

However, when trying to login via /wp-admin, I believe the cookie cannot be set, so it repeatedly asks the user for the username and password. In order to revert the problem I had to manually edit the database to revert the blog URI back to http://

stylelinks.org are allowed per RFC 2068, so it would be nice if this issue would be fixed.

Oops, I introduced an error on the ticket. It is RFC 1808, not RFC 2068.

Moreover, I did not make clear that using instead of http:// had no other negative effect on the blog, besides the session login problem.

Nobody cared to check this ticket. Anyway, I found a workaround of sorts.

I have to keep the Wordpress URL as http://spreadopenmedia.org but the Blog URL may be spreadopenmedia.org

Result: the site works just fine with the added plus that every Wordpress URL (the K2 ones are strangely not affected by it) become as opposed to http://

All's fine and well.

I don't think this is worth looking into, really. Who sets their links to example.com style? Might as well set it to http://example.com. Just because something's allowed doesn't mean you need to use it.

I recommend closing this as wontfix.
