Session not retained

Hi Jason,

Thank you for your reply. I am indeed aware of this function and already used it but without any success. The session is not being retained.

In my case, I have a form divided on two pages. step1.php and step2.php

On top of the first page I started the session handling:

<?php
if (!isset($_SESSION)) {
session_start();
}
?>

I have then applied the session value to all the form elements:

<?php
@session_start();
if ($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST") {
$_SESSION["mem1_Title"] = "".((isset($_POST["mem1Title"]))?$_POST["mem1Title"]:"") ."";
}?>

For the second page I have again used sessions:

<?php
if (!isset($_SESSION)) {
session_start();
}
?>


But when I want to read the session value like this: <?php echo((isset($_SESSION["mem1_Title"]))?$_SESSION["mem1_Title"]:"") ?>

I get nothing, the session is empty.
