Cookies and Frames

What's the trick to sharing cookies between frames? I can set and read a
cookie in the same frame, but if I try to read the cookie in another frame
it is undefined. :o(

There are some other cookies that are available in all frames, so I know
that the frames are capable of reading cookies, just not the ones that I set
in the other frame.

P.S. I am not setting any expiration, path, or domain... keeping the
defaults.

This is as bad a problem description as any.
<http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html>

How exactly do you attempt to set each cookie?
What is the URI of the resource to set each cookie?
How exactly do you attempt to read each cookie?
What is the URI of the resource to read each cookie?
With which user agents and versions have you tested
with on which operating system? Are there any errors
displayed (in the JavaScript Console) when executing
script code on the Web site?

At least those questions have to be answered before
one can make even an educated guess.

I created a music website that allows people to sign up and post messages on some message boards and update their profiles and such.

I have a simple html document I have been using for some time on my (i.e.) abc.com domain that uses cookies. I recently purchased a new domain name and set up a service to redirect my new domain (i.e.) xyz.com to a sub-directory of the abc.com domain. In other words, when someone goes to URL xyz.com, they really end up in abc.com/xyz directory but the MSIE browser says they are xyz.com. The problem is that cookies quit working in this...

I have a page, which writes a cookie, creating two frames. I have verified via Fireplug that the cookie is being written. In one of the frames, an attempt then is made to read the cookie. Therein, I have code to see if the cookie is set -- and it keeps telling me it is not set (despite my being able to see it there, and it;s contents, and it is correct). Can someone please tell me why, in this code, my frame connot read this cookie? Thanks....

Hi - I'm making a comparison site with frame and have encountered a problem. Pages come up in a lower frame that I want to interact with, but I keep getting a message from them saying "enable cookies on your browser to continue." Cookies are enabled on my browser so I am assuming that frames are preventing the cookies from working. I need a script that will instruct my framing page to receive the cookies of my framed page, so that we can...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
