Hello, I am sure this will be an easy one for you pros, and hopefully I am in the right place, but I am still wetting my feet with php and this one has me stumped.
I have a customer that claims their wordpress website sets a cookie when someone chooses a state so then when they click on the homepage later on they are actually redirected to a state specific version.
I know enough to be dangerous and I went through the code looking for the setcookie script with no luck, then I checked if a cookie was even being set (I took his word for it initially) and nothing was there (after multiple refreshes too and making sure cookies were accepted) so then I used cookie-checker.com to check the site and it agrees that no cookies are being set by the domain?! So I let the customer know he's either been duped by the previous developer or perhaps it broke somewhere along the way, but he sent me a screenshot showing a cookie with a state as the value??!!
What now? Apart from some conspiracy theory about the previous developer setting some computer specific trick for my customer I need some help on what may be going on and how to fix it.
Any thoughts or ideas? Thanks in advance!
