Set Cookie then Redirect
I have a webpage that includes a map of the U.S. and for each state I have a menu to different city websites for each state. What I would like to do is once a visitor clicks on one of the city links, a cookie is created so that when that user returns to my website, he is taken directly to the city he selected, not the home page again.
I have a script that I am working on but I am getting errors with it. I was hoping someone here could help me. I am not a developer and know very little about scripting, so any ideas or advice are helpful.
Here is the script in the HEAD section of my page:
A sample of the HTML code looks like this:
function setCookie(c_name, value, expiredays)
var exdate = new Date();
exdate.setDate(exdate.getDate() + expiredays);
document.cookie=c_name + "=" + escape(value)+
((expiredays==null) ? "" : ";expires="+exdate.toGMTString())
var mylist = document.getElementById("myList");
var myCity = mylist.values[mylist.selectedIndex].text;
var url = "http://fleabay.net/";
document.location.href = url + myCity;
The page this is at is fleabay.net/index2.php
<li value="ocala"><a onclick=GetDocsInCity()>Ocala</a></li>
<li value="orlando"><a onclick=GetDocsInCity()>Orlando</a><li>
<li value="miami"><a onclick=GetDocsInCity()>Miami</a></li>
<li value="thevillages"><a onclick=GetDocsInCity()>The Villages</a></li>
I actually have not set up all the cities yet, but I figured if I get this part figured out, I can set the rest of the cities just fine.
Thank You for your help.
