[ cookie_set ]


[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.

-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.

To set a cookie:

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.
