  • cookie question

    Hello,

    I don't know if this is even possible, but, can you identify a cookie from another site, say Amazon.com, on a visitors computer. If they have/or don't have this cookie popup a new browser window leading to that site with your affiliate code?

    Don't know if you'll understand this, but if you do, is it possible? Thanks.

    nope, not possible

    no you can't do that.

    for example, some sites store information in a cookie, such as the username and password. if you could access that cookie with a simple cgi/php script, then you would have full access to that users account, making everything very insecure.

    so, nope, you can't do it.

    hope this helps.

      Thanks for the info, I can see why you wouldn't be able to do it.
