Greetings all.

While trying to create a session-based advertising model that does not rely on 
the existence of cookies, I ran into trouble: I can't figure out how to place 
the entire $_SESSION array into a MySQL table row, then retrieve it and use the 
information from one page to the next.

The best that I can do is copy the PHPSESSID into a MySQL row, then dissect the 
$_SESSION array so that each of its parts can be stored in a separate row of 
the same record. Then, with the $_GET variable, I am able to get the 
MySQL_last_id and retreive the information from the correct field, and it works 
across pages.

The only problem is this: should the $_SESSION array grow with more data--say, 
adding a first name variable, and a time-of-day varaible--then I need to update 
the MySQL table whenever I do this. Not a big deal, I know, but I'm frustrated 
with this.

One more thing: one of the variables in the $_SESSION array is an <img src> 
url, so it screws up the mysql insert, even when I use serialize.

Thanks for any help you can give.
