redirect from index page

redirect from index page

Hi

I'm trying to setup a redirect based on a 5 day cookie life. I've searched and cannot find a solution recipe
so over the past weeks I've been working on it.

I now have on my index.php page above the header

<?php
if( !(isset($_COOKIE["splashCookie"])) ) {
header("Location: http://www.ashburyblinds.co.uk/splash.php");
}
?>

on the page splash.php I have

<?php
if ("" == "") {
setcookie("splashCookie", "visited", time()+(60*60*24*5), "/", "", 0);
}
?>

This does not seem to work, any ideas why?

thanks

Ian

On your splash page, you need to change:

if ("" == "") { to

if( !(isset($_COOKIE["splashCookie"])) ) {

because you only want to set the cookie once, otherwise the cookie expiration time will be incremented by 5 days every time your visit the page.

Hi Dani

regrettably no further forward!

If I go to

index.php

the page does redirect to

splash.php

the code at the top of the index page is:

<?php
if( !(isset($_COOKIE["splashCookie"])) ) {
header("Location: http://www.ashburycurtains.co.uk/splash.php");
}
?>

I can find no other code relating to the cookie ie no onLoad events.

On the splash page is the code:

<?php
if( !(isset($_COOKIE["splashCookie"])) ) {
header("Location: http://www.ashburycurtains.co.uk/splash.php");
}
?>

Again there appears to be no onload event set or any other code.

The help files are not "helpful" (to me a novice) and there is regretably no road map for what I assume is a core use of cookies!

would appreciate your input

thanks

When i go to:

index.php

the first time I'm redirected to:

splash.php

which is correct. And when i go back to your index page, i'm not redirected anymore, which also seems correct. Could you explain a little more about what is not working?

Hi Dani

apologies late late last night ( 1 am - dammed olympics) I noticed a possible code error which got it all working.

Became involved in the Olympics and forgot to post the solution.

As always simple- I forgot that splashCookie is different from splashcookie

changed the case and all is now working!!!

thanks

Ian
