Javascript Cookie - Append Query String to URL

how to append query string to URL from javascript cookie

I need to be able to store the query string of group=trade in a cookie so it can be appended to a URL when the cookie has been found.

I don't have much experience with JS Cookies. I need the cookie to be placed on the users computer when they view our website. Then when they next visit the website the cookie is found and the query string is appended to the URL.

This is all for an affiliate scheme. The appended URL changes a small feature of the website.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Many Thanks,

Welcome to WebmasterWorld, keenboy!

Basically, it's just a matter of setting document.cookie:

 document.cookie = "name=value; expires=date; path=path; domain=domain; secure";

There are many tutorials available with functions that make setting and reading cookies with javascript much easier though. I recommend a search in your favorite search engine for "javascript cookies." :)

Let us know if you run into any trouble and we'll be happy to help. :)

I think I now understand how to create the document cookie I just cannot seem to find much info on how to extract the query string from the cookie and append it to the URL.
