php sessions and disabled cookies
Why won't this work?

 5:32 pm on Jun 7, 2002 (gmt 0)

Hi everyone.

I have php compiled with --enable-trans-sid but when I disable cookies the session is not being propagated through the url as I thought it would.

Any thoughts?

Once you've called session_start() you will have the session ID available in a constant called SID. You need to include this in any URLs where you wish to propogate the session, like this:

<a href="nextpage.php?<?=SID?>">Next page</a>

Thanks for the reply but as I said I have --enable-trans-sid compiled into php so that takes care of server-side propagation automatically.

Actually, I've sorted it, I'm afraid it was a case of not seeing the wood for the trees:

The session is passed via url if cookies are disabled right? I was redirecting not linking so there was no way to pass the SID.
