Hi All,

I am getting problem with use session in Firefox n chrome. session variables work fine in IE but not in above two browsers. I integrated the blog(wordpress version 3.0.1) in existing website and being logged in when I click to enter in blog section, session variables lost their values. I already started session in index.php file of the wordpress and it works in IE but not in remaining two. register globals is set to off.

help appreciated.

session variables require cookies. If you have cookies disabled, you will not maintain your session. Check  your browsers and make sure cookies are enabled.

well just want to clarify,  you can have sessions without cookies, but it requires putting the session identifier in the url.
