    Setting a cookie?

    Where do I place my setcookie code if I want to set a cookie when someone visits the index page?

    I'm having problems with header already being sent errors, so I'm obviously placing my code in the wrong place.

    Please help!

    You must call setcookie() before you send any output to the browser. If that's not possible, consider using output buffering:

    PHP Code:

    echo "I'm printing stuff";

    // Yet I can set a cookie

    // Before output is kept in the buffer and not sent to the browser

    Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.
