At the moment, the solution I've thought of involves checking with PHP if the visitor ID cookie exists. If it doesn't I'll have some sort of intermediate page whose sole purpose is just to set the visitor ID and then return the user back to the page they requested. It will all happen very quickly, but it produces a slightly annoying flicker
Do you see a more elegant solution to this or am I just going overboard with the annoying flicker?
Thanks in advance.
