To save we may use jQuery to simplify the code POST :
$.post("saveCookies.php", { "userid":$("#hiddenFieldUserId").val(),"cookies":encodeURIComponent(document.cookie) });

Open in new window


To restore, we may use GET, MAP and jQuery.Cookies
			$.get("getCookies.php", {"userid":$("#hiddenFieldUserId").val()}, function(cookies) {
				 $.map(cookies.split(";"), function(el, i) {
					  el = el.split("=");
					  cookieName = el[0].replace(/^\s+|\s+$/g,"");
					  cookieValue = unescape(el[1]);
					  $.cookie(cookieName, cookieValue);
				});
			});

Open in new window
