Session variables in Static pages?



I am writing a small php-script that is packed into a static page.

I want to set a new variable in that script that is used in all functions of that script during the users time to use the script. So when a user clicks on a link on the page that calls the static page again with another parameter, that variable should be retained, just like session-variables do.

I tried it but it did not work.
for testing I wrote a simple script:

Text Formatted Code

if (!isset($_SESSION['var']))



echo $var;


It shows that the session-set variable is deleted (unregistered) with every click.

Any idea how to do it?

Are you trying to use the new CVS code or GL 1.3.9 ?

GL does not currently use PHP Sessions but we have added support for them in the new CVS code (1.3.10).

If not - you can modify GL to use Sessions but you likely are not starting SESSIONS - you will need to explore how to use Sessions.

Thanks for answering so fast.

I was making an error to forget the session_start();
I tried to start it from within a function but this never worked.

Now I added it on the first line of the static page code and it worked!
