    Getting / Setting a value from js into the template Link to this post

    I'm not sure about what I need here or how to really ask the question...

    I am setting a cookie (sneAlertCookie) to allow a visitor to a second page, but only one time. If they return to this second page, they are brought to another page - this is all working.

    I have an alert box on the first page for first time visitors. If they travel to the second page (above) a cookie is set on their computer. If they leave and return to this second page, the system redirects them to the page of my choice. Again all working.

    If a visitor comes back to the site on the first page (the one with the alert box), I want to get a value from their cookie and use it on this page to in an IF to turn the alert off.

    var value == sneAlertCookie; //from client cookie - does it exist


    <% if sneAlertCookie == value %>

    How do I get a value from javascript or set in the php file for this page type (AlertPage) ??

    Anyone with some great knowledge offer some ideas and help here?

    Thank you,
