[resolved] PHP check for cookies doesn't work (4 posts)

    Hi there,
    here is my problem:

    I successfully wrote a cookie. Then I check for this cookie with Java Script and PHP code. But only Java Script returns me "found".

    <script language="javascript">
    	if (document.cookie.indexOf("users_res") >= 0) {
    else {
      alert("not found");
    if (isset($HTTP_COOKIE_VARS["users_res"]))  {
        echo "found";
    } else {
        echo "not found";

    When I put this PHP code into test.php and I upload it manually to my site - PHP script shows "found". But when I try to insert the code into header.php or any other PHP file of my WP theme - it shows "not found".

    I tested this PHP code with 2 other sites with different themes and WP versions, but no change.
