How can I make a browse accept cookies from a site?

Hello. I have a Javascript Cookie Image rotator hosted on this page:

http://www.magicbroadcasting.net/sexandthecity.htm

And I am using an iframe to embed it on this site:

http://www.island106.com/PhotoWall.asp?id=41468

The problem that I am having is that when people are looking at the pictures on Island106.com, the rotator is not working because it is not reading the cookie from Island106.com, it is blocking the cookie from magicbroadcasting.net, I am assuming because it thinks it's a 3rd party cookie.

The rotator will work on Island106.com if you change your preferences to accept cookies from magicbroadcasting.net.

One idea to make it work is to make a tutorial on how to do this. But I was hoping that there is a way that I can make it accept cookies from magicbroadcasting.net

One idea I have is, is there a way to add a link to another magicbroadcasting.net page and have them click a link (run a script?) that will automatically "always allow cookies from magicbroadcasting.net"

Or...do you know an easier way to achieve this?

SYancey1,

There is no way to make some one accept cookies.  It is completely in the user's control.  Your best bet is the tutorial to show how to do it if accidentally disabled or blocked and some incentive to allow them.  For example if that is an important part of a page or your site then people will make sure they work so they can use that part.

Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.

SYancey1,

By the way ... it is pretty common for users and settings to block 3rd party cookies.  Move the script or process to your server if possible or try to provide a reason they want to allow them.  Many people choose to block them though since they aren't a main part of your site and usually part of ads or tracking.

Just a thought. :)
