Hi,

Even when I have set the "cookie_file=~/.config/lynx_cookies" option in my ~/.lynxrc config file; Lynx is still not able to remeber cookies from session to session. Why is this? Is there some global option turning this off?

You need to set the PERSISTENT_COOKIES option to true so that it will save the cookies across sessions, you should also set the COOKIE_SAVE_FILE option to the same file as what you've got COOKIE_FILE set to. Also if you don't want to be prompted to accept cookies each time you can set the ACCEPT_ALL_COOKIES option to true so that it will automatically accept every cookie.

The PERSISTENT_COOKIES option can only be enabled in /etc/lynx.cfg the other options can be set in ~/.lynxrc

Hey (sorry for posting 4 years later), but the cookie_save_file option doesn't work.

I'm using
Quote:
lynx -cookie_file=/home/phk/.lynx_cookies http://www.rackspace.co.uk/ -crawl -traversal -cookie_save_file=/home/phk/.lynx_cookies


And the /home/phk/.lynx_cookies file is never altered.

My /etc/lynx.cfg:
Quote:
phk@Phk-Laptop:~/Desktop/teste$ cat /etc/lynx.cfg
PERSISTENT_COOKIES:TRUE
SET_COOKIES:TRUE
ACCEPT_ALL_COOKIES:TRUE
PERSISTENT_COOKIES:TRUE
COOKIE_FILE:/home/phk/.lynx_cookies
COOKIE_SAVE_FILE:/home/phk/.lynx_cookies
FORCE_SSL_COOKIES_SECURE:FALSE


Any ideas?
