Cookies

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm using Internet explorer on PC and I was making web pages on my machine I had cookies set up using FMP-SetCookie and they were working just fine..

Then we moved the files to server and Cookies don't get created anymore. What can be causing that?

Thank you

What version of IE?

If 6, then you need to declare privacy policy.

In general, cookies are not reliable in IE and FM/CDML combination.

--privacy settings in IE->Tools->Internet Options->Privacy?

if yes, then they are set to lowest level, if no, then please explain more..

If I'm not mistaken, FileMaker is a company which is very concerned with the health and well-being of those who develop its product. Because of this concern FileMaker restricts the developer's diet to one cookie. laugh.gif

And if I am mistaken, oh well ...

RE: what do you mean by "Declare privacy policy" ?

Every server, who wants to set cookies, should have this XML document.

Because I stopped using cookies, I never went through that procedure.

Personally, because of the "FileMaker Diet" (ie limited number of Cookies which can be set with the [FMP-SetCookie...] command, I switched to JavaScript Cookies.

It is not perfect (sometimes needing scripting to set form variables to the Cookie's contents), but I think that the limit for the number of concurrent cookies then becomes something like 20....

Plus it allows you to set the Cookie value to [FMP-Link], which is another limitation of the [FMP-SetCookie...] command.

IE 6 implement P3P Plateform for Privacy Policy Preferences.

It let the user to say which informations he wants to leave at disposal with the operators of Web site.

Ie 6 security options can stop cookie write from sites that doesn't have a privacy policy

see http://www.w3.org/P3P/

I wrote a little article that introduce P3P (For lasso)
