[tmp tmp_session_id][scratch mv_no_session_id][/tmp]
> [timed-build period="1440" file=|timed/promo-[control banner Featured
> Products]-[control matches 3]-[control promo_type featured]-[value deptid]|]
> ...component code...
[seti mv_no_session_id][scratch tmp_session_id][/set]
That should prevent the id from escaping, I think, allowing you to
use force=1; then it should reset to the previous setting.
If you require cookies, you could instead remove the code from the login
action that sets mv_no_session_id to 0.
