Hi all,

When I click on an image the first time I need to write a cookie so that the the code does not appear it it's already been clicked.

For example:
If cookie value not exists {
 //show the image and write the cookie if clicked
} else {
 //do nothing
}

Can anyone help please?

Thanks

<?php 

if (!isset($_COOKIE['cookie_name']) {
	// Show the image
	setcookie(
		'cookie_name', // Name of cookie
		true, // Value of cookie
		strtotime('+1 month'), // Expiry date
		'/' // Path
	);
} else {
	// do nothing
}

?>
