Sessions and Cookies

Recommended Posts

I'm brushing up on Cookies and Sessions.

 

My book says that in order to access the same Session data, you must have

 

 

session_start();

 

 

on each page that uses the Session data AND the user must have accepted the Session Cookie?!

 

So what do you do if a user has Cookies Turned Off or Declines a Session Cookie??  :shrug:

 

(I find it hard to believe that Sessions are that "delicate"?!)

Hello,

 

You are correct in that you need session_start();

 

What I do on my login page is set a session var of, say $_SESSION['user_id'].  Then, I check for that var on every page as well.  That way, if they don't have that session var active, they don't get access to any page.

 

Hope that helps.

Sorry, that wasn't my question...
