Name of cookie
A PHP session allows a website to pass data from one page to another by allowing us to store user information on the server for later use (i.e. username, shopping cart items, etc.). However, this session information is temporary and is usually deleted very quickly after you have left the website. Sessions work by creating a unique identification (PHPSESSID) number for each visitor and storing variables based on this ID. This helps to prevent two users’ data from getting confused with one another when visiting the same webpage.
These cookies are used by operate the website software we use to help manage blog specific site pages. This cookie expires when you close your browser.
