I am having trouble with 5B. The first steps are fine - I can set the cookie and the file is being saved in my cookies folder. There seems to be a problem with reading it though, as the variable $background is always empty. I have used "echo empty($background);" to verify this. The code is pasted below. Is there something I am missing?
I am also having a similar problem with the login code on page 371 - my auth.inc.php file cannot redirect the browser using the $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] path but it can if I hard code the file name. Is this a related problem?
Thanks, Mac. I will do so. I had already tried to do this but found that the PHP Sem 1 forum postings had disappeared from the list; they do seem to be available again now though. (Actually, I thought it was a deliberate ploy to stop us getting too much help from there for the pratical!).
