Customers landing on cookie_usage.php

Recommended Posts

Hi All!

 

I notice through viewing the "Who's Online" tool that customers are often landing on catalog/cookie_usage.php. This can't be nice, and I think a lot of them bail out at that point.

 

I do not have "Force Cookie Use" enabled in "Admin > Sessions".

 

Anyone have any ideas on why this is happening, or how I can follow it up?

 

Thanks a million,

~Wendy

cookie_usage.php is only used when a session has not been started by oscommerce. This is either force cookie use or a spider has been detected via spiders.txt.

 

Other than that you might have some bad code in application_top.php.

It could also be that your robots.txt file is not existant or set up correctly.

Thanks Robert and Leslie! :) I will follow up on these ideas.

 

Further reading has shown me that it is probably spiders getting the "cookies" page, rather than actual customers, which is a relief in itself.

 

I'll post later with what I find.
