Subject Re: web crawler not sharing cookies
Date Wed, 25 Jul 2018 17:06:38 GMT
Hi again,

Thanks Karl, I was able of doing that after defining some "login sequence",
but also after filling database (cookiedata table) with certain values due
to "domain constrictions".
Before every web call, I suspect Manifold only takes cookies from URL exact
subdomain (i.e., so if you define your cookie as "" it
won't be sent, so I added every subdomain by hand and started to work.
