Smile cookies and headers

hi

im trying to use the setcookie function to set a cookie, but its not setting the cookie, i suspect that it is because i have a header(location: blah blah) function called after that?

if this is the problem is there a way around it?

thanks... you dudes are cool and thanks for helping me out

if the setcookie function is used after the header function, that should be fine,

make sure theirs no white space any where,

make sure that in your code that the <? or <?php tag, is the first chars, and their isnt any spaces

hope that helps

if you have a location header, then that means that the browser isnt displaying a page, and to set cookies, the page must display. even if you set the right cookie headers with setcookie, if you call location, then it's going to change the page location before the cookies are dumped to the browser.

your best bet would be to use setcookie then meta tags to do the redirect to a new page

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; url=http://www.devarticles.com">

will refresh the page to devarticles.com after 0 seconds...
