Can't get a cookie to set. Below is the code near the file top BEFORE any html output.
$_POST['prefs'] comes from a hidden field in the middle of the html output.
$_POST['filter'] comes from a select option.
A Submit button closes the page and refreshes it.
print_r($_POST) shows $_POST['prefs'] $_POST['prefs'] are just as I expect when the page refreshes.
$cookie= setcookie("listpref", $_POST['filter'], time()+7776000);
var_dump($cookie) shows bool TRUE
I added the session_start() as a test.
print_r($_COOKIE) shows the session ID cookie works just fine.
IE6 and Firefox don't record the regular cookie.
