The e-commerce.

Get the session-id from an other frame


Recommended Posts



i have a little problem with my website.

I have a page with 2 different frames, in the top frame is a dhtml-menu, in the bottom frame is the oscommerce-shop.


i created the menu so it has all categories from the shop.

My problem is: the links in the menu have no session-id attached. So when a user logs in and uses the menu, the session-id is lost and he must login again.


Anyone knows how i can put the session-id in the menu links? Remember, the menu is in an other frame as the shop.


Thank you!

Come to think of it, there might be another way, too.


Add something like this at the very end of your catalog/includes/header.php:

<?php echo tep_draw_hidden_field('frame_sid', tep_session_id()); ?>


You should now be able to reference the sid in the menu-frame by something like this in javascript (not sure about the syntax):

sid = window.oscframe.frame_sid;
