Hi all,

In the PHP doco, it states that once a cookie is set, it can only be retrieved after the page/browser reloads.

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.
