For a plugin i need to track an anonymous user over the pages he is navigating.

I would use the cookieid for this purpose:



However, I am not sure if the cookieid could not created twice for two different users (?!)

Should I also store the IP address to be on the safe side?


PS: I have just seen now that table qa_cookies is doing this: cookieid + createip. Just have to find the q2a-built-in-function if any...
If using ONLY cookieids I have to make sure that they always exist. And I have to make sure that there are always cookieids available. I have checked another production database: From 55 076 anonymous postings there have been 7 without cookieid. Kind of neglectable.
