Hi, Regarding the recent thread on sessions.
If you want cookies to expire after the user leaves the sie or closes the browser do not leave the expiry date emty. 9 times out of 10 the cookie will remain. All you need to do is set a date that has passed. Like 1st Jan 2000. Most set it way back to 1980 because some people reset their dates and what not for Program hijacking etc. So 1980 is a good limit. You can use any date passed and it will expire, any future date it won't expire until the date has been reached/passed. Regarding using $ variables. I have seen on some servers you can easily use $"the vairable" but some servers don't like the user of $ . I have never seen an explaination to why this occours, so thought I'd mention it. If the session is unset 9 out of 10 times the $ may be a problem on your server and you will need to look at alternative methods. J Find local movie times and trailers on Yahoo!
