But as Raluca stated in her previous message, this causes the panels to 
keep collapsed because this value prevents the cookie to be created. I'm 
afraid I'm still lost with this issue: I don't understand yet why 
setting $expanded = 'collapsed' instead of reading its value from a 
cookie prevents cookies function.

Please, Lockie, how to you get a collapsed panel at page loading time 
being later on controlled by a cookie? I mean, panel A appears collapsed 
when you access the site for the first time. From this moment onwards, a 
cookie will remember the preferences of each visitor.

Here it is the example that is making me nuts:


It is a simple portal still in progress. I want that all four menus on 
the right will appear collapsed the first time a visitor/users access 
the site. And that the stated of each panel will be stored in a cookie 
for subsequent visits.

#set($expanded = 'collapsed') allows me to show them collapsed, but prevents 
cookies function. In fact cookies are never created. I think I understood 
Raluca's explanation in the her previous message in this same thread, but I'm 
still not able to find a solution for this issue.
