Hi, I just wondered if you know if session values can be kept if you pass between different web sites.
For example:
If A session value is set in site A. Then - if you link from Site A to Site B (within same window - i.e. not popping up a new window), do some stuff on site B, and then link back to Site A again from Site B. Will the session value which weas originally set in site A be kept in session when you return to this site?
This may be asked confusingly, hopefully however you will understand what I am asking.
Thanks for the help.

The session for site A should still be there when you return to site A, provided that the browser allows cookies and the session has not timed-out. A typical time-out for sessions is 30 minutes, but you can change that in code.
