How do we get the little red circle at the bottom of Internet Explorer to go away? I click on it and it says about 2 dozen files from /catalog/images cookies are blocked.

 

Doesn't seem to affect anything but looks bad for sales.

This is the long answer. This link will take you to page 12 of 22 on the discussion of the new security proposal that was implemented after MS1

 

http://www.oscommerce.com/forums/viewtopic.php...r=asc&start=110

 

On this page you will see three posts by Marcel about p3p and compact policy statements. Click on all links and start reading. You will learn all about new privacy implementations that are coming down the road and how to make your site compliant and avoid the "evil red eye".

 

This is the short answer. On same page, he gives some code to paste into you application_top.php file. Try that and see if the red eye goes away. It did for me :D

Thank you very much for answer. I put in that code, does it matter where it goes on the page? Now when I refresh the red eye goes away but then it comes back when you click something.

I also used this code and got the same results

 

// Implement p3p Privacy Policy 

 header('P3P: CP="CAO CURa ADMa DEVa TAIa PSAa PSDa CONi OUR DELa NOR BUS PHY ONL UNI PUR COM NAV DEM STA"');

 

This was developed by using the IBM policy editor which is available for download here http://www.alphaworks.ibm.com/tech/p3peditor

 

Bear in mind, I just sort of played around with it till it worked and I am just using on a test site. I still have to verify the compact policy code reflects the actual privacy policy the site will have in place.
