Why is there a need for a PHP session when WordPress is not using it. This seems like a lazy solution that actually causes more issues for a scale-out solution. Given that WPML itself requires so many resources (double server size just to run at normal speeds) this is a major concern. Why couldn't this be better implemented using usermeta or even cookies?

Hi.

Our second tier supporters agreed that this issue needs to be reevaluated and they will discuss it with our developers. Therefore I'm escalating this issue to our second tier supporters.

Any update on this? I am about to launch an scale-out solution and this is a concern. Hopefully an ETA or any information would be much appreciated 🙂

Hi.

I'm sorry, but I have no ETA for this fix. The issue is still escalated to our developers. Our second tier supporter let me know that as soon as one of the developers is available for this, it will be taken care of.
