hi

after i login providing a password via a form field, i set a cookie
when i logout i grab this cookie and set its value to an empty string

then, when closing the browser, i'm not able to go back to a page that is checking for this cookie ?

login -> set cookie

site pages...all check for this cookie, if not the right value then redirect to login

login -> set cookie value = " "

is there a way to solve the loout cookie problem cleanely and elegantly ?
thanks
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
