Doing 2 Events Consecutively

P: 2
Hello,

I'm a relative newbie to javascript so I'm not sure if this can be done. Any direction would be appreciated.

I'm trying to link to individual pages on a website which uses ASP session cookies to navigate through its pages. This site is accessed using our individual member ids. So to access the site we use something like: www.sitename.com/id#. Visitors on that site can click on individual links such as www.sitename.com/join.asp and our id# will be retained.

I'm wondering if I can setup links on my site which will open a new window linking to the home page with my id# (thereby setting the session cookies) and then immediately (and transparently) go to any specific individual pages? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Welcome to TSDN!

So you want all links to first go to the home page to set the session cookies and then to the real link. You could probably do this on the server-side without any Javascript. The code should check if the cookie is set. If not, it goes to the home page, then re-directs back to the referrer page.

Thanks for your help. Fortunately for me, the website I'm trying to access has made a change in their programming and I can now access the pages directly. So no programming is needed on my part.

Thanks again.

Glad you got your problem solved, even if it wasn't programmatically done!
