Reading cookies problem

P: n/a
Hi,

I have problem with reading cookies.
I'd like to save fields of my form into cookies and use them by
another page.
I save cookies:
foreach ($_POST as $idx =$value)
{
setcookie($idx, $value);
}
I check them in FireFox, all cookes are set OK.

Then I'd like to read them using code:
foreach( $_COOKIE as $key =$var )
{
print $key . ": " .$var . "<br>";
}

I save about 60 cookies, unfortunatley only some cookies are read!
I have no idea what's wrong.
Please help me to solve my problem.

Thanks in advance for a help!
Regards,
Jacek

You might be running into the limit on the amount of cookie data sent
per site in that browser.

You may be able to store some of these values in the session instead.
You can tweak the session cookie parameters with
session_set_cookie_params.

You could also just insert the data into a db and set a cookie
containing a unique ID that references the data.

Hi,

but I can see in my browser that cookies are set OK, so why the limit
on the amount of cookie data sent is not OK?
I don't get it...

That limit is perfectly OK, as you will have noticed. Cookies are not
meant to store enormous amounts of data. That is why your browser puts a
limit on it. Just don't store 60 (!) cookies on a client computer. Store
just one and keep the data at the server.

Good luck,
