Because there are not two periods in the domain, the cookie is probably
not being set properly.

You should never use a domain like http://paradevices.com/ on any site
that expects to set cookies. It doesn't work with all browsers by a long

Also, it looks like this is a catalog using CPANEL, which is likely to
create tons of problems of its own. Note that we specifically DO NOT
support Interchange connected via CPANEL. If you have any further
questions, please contact your ISP.

Thanks Mike,

but: from
linking to http://www.icdevgroup.org/i/dev/docfly.html?mv_arg=icfaq09.03

[ This URL:
[   <A HREF="http://yourcatalog.com/cgi-in/yourcat/sp_offer?mv_pc=Source1";>
[       Special offer!&lt;/A>
[ will yield Source1 from the Interchange tag [data session source].

Which is what I am trying to accomplish for one.

So how do I accomplish both?
