[Cookie_Set] sets a cookie with a given name and value. The rest of the parameters of the method are optional, but should be set for best results.
-Domain identifies the domain which the cookie will be sent to by the Web browser. This should be the domain name of the current server. i.e. example.com.
-Expires is the expiration time of the cookie in minutes. If left blank the cookie will usually expire when the visitor's browser is quit. If set to -1 the cookie will be set to expire immediately so will be effectively deleted.
-Path identifies the path on the current server of pages to which the cookie should be sent. This will usually be set to / so the cookie is returned to every page within the current site. The path defaults to the folder which contains the current page.
-Secure specifies that the cookie should only be returned to pages which are served through the secure HTTPS protocol.
Cookie_Set( 'Cookie Name'='Cookie Value', -Domain='Domain Name', -Expires='Expiration in Minutes', -Path='Cookie Path', -Secure )
Use the [Cookie_Set] method. The following example sets a cookie named First_Name to the value John. Since the -Expires parameter is not set the cookie will expire when the visitor quits their Web browser.
Cookie_Set( 'First_Name'='John', -Domain='example.com', -Path='/' )
