in thread Cookies problem

I decided to use cookies as I was previously using .htaccess and users were having to enter the same user/pass many times whilst moving through various protected folders (this is another problem I could see no answer to).

Funny that I was just reading the Apache docs about this earlier today. If you're using Apache, and have the ability to set per-directory .htaccess (which I assume you do), look at: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/howto/auth.html#basicworks You can configure your various secured directories such that they are named under one authentication name, or "realm", to which browsers will send the same auth info on every request. This prevents the constant auth logins when changing directories.

Try adding the line:
AuthName "Our Protected Stuff"
to your .htaccess file and see what happens. I've not tried this, but will soon have a need for it. Let me know how well it works.
