Here is a simple code that explains how a cookie is set and retrieved using php.
A cookie is set with the following code: setcookie(name, value, expiration)
$Month = 2592000 + time();
//this adds 30 days to the current time
setcookie(MyVisit, date(“F jS – g:i a”), $Month);
The above code sets a cookie named “MyVisit” in the visitors browser. The cookie sets the value to the current date, and set’s the expiration to be be in 30 days (2592000 = 60 seconds * 60 mins * 24 hours * 30 days.)
Now as the cookie is set, we have to retrieve this cookie in another page so for that copy this code
Now let’s retrieve the cookie.
$last = $_COOKIE[‘MyVisit’];Â
echo “Welcome back! <br> You last visited on “. $last;Â
echo “Welcome to our site!”;Â
Simple try out this code and enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!
