I am also having a similar problem...


I have configured and installed Ultimate SEO and it is working perfectly... but to allow every possible conceivable search engine advantage, i have forced cookie use to prevent the Session ID being added to links. This also is working fine. What is not working however, is the Login.


I can create new user accounts without problems, but when I try to login as one of the users, login.php forwards me to cookie_usage.php.


I have checked, rechecked, and then checked again. application_top.php sets a test cookie to test the status and if it cannot set the test cookie successfully, the user is shown the cookie_usage.php screen assuming the problem is with their browser.


I have OSCommerce installed in the root directory of the site, so my Cookie Dir is set to "/./" while the domain is simply "mydomain.com" (mydomain is replaced of course with my site's domain name)


I am quite baffled now, and hope that someone else has found a solution or workaround to this problem!


Any help will be greatly appreciated.
