My company wishes to split their website so that anonymous users are given slightly different sites based on a question when they first visit.
I intend to use a cookie to store the answer to the question between sessions, but I'm wondering what the best way is to use that answer once the user is browsing the site? I intend to use page manager to handle the context but I'm still trying to determine where it should be stored:
- Cookies can be turned off by the user, or the IT department, much of our target audience have policies restricting or outright banning cookies
- Session variables seem to be the way to go, unless:
- Does the Global $user variable store different information for each anonymous visitor?
Are there downfalls in either of the latter two options? Have I missed any options?
