Over the last month or so I have be getting reports of issues with “Cookies” causing problems with registering for classes online.
Although I am not super tech-savvy, I have received some clarification on what the issue could be.
Sometime this summer there were some changes in how cookies are being handled. That changes caused some issues with cross-site and same-site cookies. I sound pretty savvy now, huh? (Thanks, Mr. Boulineau) I honestly have very little understanding of what I just said, but we have made some changes in online registration to correct it (I hope).
As always, got to www.mkgmadison.com
