Fixing logins on Chrome
rating: +41+x

Google recently added a change for Chrome/Chromium which blocks all third-party cookies by default. The aim is to minimize user tracking across different sites, which is good. Unfortunately because Wikidot only reports cookies (used to determine if a user is signed in) for sites ending in "wikidot.com" this means wikis with custom domains (e.g. scp-wiki.net and kontainer.djkakt.us) don't recognize that you're logged in.

The easiest workaround is to use http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/ instead of http://www.scp-wiki.net/.

However it is possible in some cases to adjust Chrome settings so we can use the custom URLs and be logged in on Wikidot. If this does not work, the only workaround is to use the *.wikidot.com addresses as mentioned above.

If you have any questions, you can ask in #site11, our IRC channel for technical matters.
