    Silverstripe and Cookies Link to this post


    I'm creating a cookie called "parentid" using a PHP script outside of Silverstripe. My browsers confirm that the session has been created correctly.

    I'm now trying to access this within Silverstripe, using the following code:

    public function getParentID() {
    if (isset($_COOKIE['parentid'])) {
    return $_COOKIE['parentid'];

    Then in the template using $getParentID

    However, the code refuses to get the session content.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Is the function actually being called?

    If you return something like "hello" instead of the session content, does it work?

    I had to use cookies once and I got the contents like this:

    $OrderCookie = new Cookie;
    $Order = $OrderCookie->get('order_cookie');

    //process $Order here

    @_Vince Cookie is designed to be static.

    Cookie::set('foo', "Hello");
    Cookie::get('foo'); // returns hello.

    @sca123 - Are both your PHP script and SilverStripe running on the same domain?
