Maybe someone knows that.

I have a dialog form which pops up, when you browse to the website. There you have to choose a country, then you can access the website. In the background I save the country in a session variable and through that I can get som other data to display.

But now I have the problem that the sessions works just, when you have in the browser the url with index.php at the end..means -> this works -> this works not, it always shows the dialog poped up and nothing happens

when do the sessions start? Or what do I wrong?

If someone can give me an answer or a tipp that would be great. Thanks very much.

so, I have the solution:

the Sessions starts when I start the session in the config.php File

Session::start(); -> with that it starts

then the dialog popup works here too
