<cfset client.pass=1>. I test this variable in every template in the admin's directory. If the client variable is defined they don't have to log in. It's always worked that way for me. However today I was informed (after two years) that one of the administrators has to log in every time. Why would that be?
I have clientmanagement="yes" and setclientcookies="yes" in the application.cfm. I have no browser cookie called "pass" on my machine so I assume the variable is store on the server's registry.
