I have some pages that are password protected. I am doing this by detecting a a cookie and if that cookie is'nt available re-directs you to the login page.

When you log in I set a cookie like setcookie("user","itsme")

HOWEVER....

The cookie keeps deleting itself, I thought that if you did'nt specify a limit thenit would last forever.

It's the other way around - if you don't specify an expiry time, the cookie lasts for just that session. If you want an 'infinite' cookie, set it to +999 days or something ;)

thanks Sugarkane, don't know why I thought the opposite.
