I could not find a similar issue so I decided to open a new one.
I am currently working on issue #760 which is related to this..
Actually, there's been some work done with regards to user preferences. IMO this would be an instance where we'd like to use user preferences. Have a look at http://review.markusproject.org @aimenk and @seanbud should know more about the status of user prefs.
@lejaokri about that: We should really use user preferences for this. I.e. have a table in the app to store these infos. A cookie isn't supposed to hold much data. Besides it's inconvenient for a user who switched browser or uses two computers to set those preferences multiple times.
Again, it would be best to talk to the folks I've mentioned above and pick up their work and finish it rather than doing this with cookies. My $0.02 :)
@aimenk and @seanbud May I know the status of this issue? Once I found the ticket similar to this, I will close #788.
Found it.. #689
I am closing 788 because it's a duplicate to 689
