Hi all,

In the PHP doco, it states that once a cookie is set, it can only be retrieved after the page/browser reloads.
(Source: http://php.net/manual/en/function.setcookie.php)

Are cookies in SS the same? ie. If I set one say in a controller, and the page loads, will it take a reload for the cookie data to be retrieved?

Please advise - I am a complete & total noob to SS.

Regards

Test it and see what happens! If that's what setcookie() requires then it's likely it will be the same as SilverStripe. Cookie in SilverStripe is simply a basic wrapper around setcookie
