Can someone please provide me with documentation or an example of creating/managing session variables in SS. Where do I set session variables and where/how do I check if these variables are present. I am trying to set & check for a variable after a certain page has been navigated to. For example, if I select a store as my location, I would like to remember this as the user navigates the site.Thanks for any help.

Session::set('var', "true!"); // sets var to "true!"
Session::get('var'); // returns "true!"
Session::clear('var'); // empties var

You can call those in any of your PHP files, classes.
