How to create cookies using Smarty Template Engine?
Posted on 2009-04-03
I have been working with PHP for a decent amount of time, but I now have to work with Smarty at my office. What I am trying to do is create a cookie when someone first comes to the site and then use that variable to display a phone number throughout the site for their entire visit.
I want to use a cookie so that if they close the window and come back later, I can still display the correct phone number targeted for them.
Unfortunately, I don't know anything about Smarty and can't figure out how to create a cookie or access it either. Should I create the cookie using PHP? Can Smarty access cookie data? Can someone help me?
