My client wants to trace the original/first HTTP referer of every visitor to his site. He wants his home page to write a cookie to the user's computer recording the referer domain. The php-driven inquiry form will then access the cookie and include the refer information in the notification to the client.
Thanks - but I can't have explained properly.
I can't use php because this is not all happening in the same session - and, even if it is, the reader will likely have started at the home page and read various other pages of the site, so the original referer will be long gone unless we trap it at the next page.
