    Question Cookie aint retrieving when visiting happens from a backlink.


    Hello i having the following code to try and retrieve the visitor's saved cookie form the browser.

    Code:
    # initialize cookie and retrieve cookie from clients browser
    try:
    	cookie = cookies.SimpleCookie( os.environ['HTTP_COOKIE'] )
    	cookieID = cookie['name'].value
    except:
    	cookieID = 'visitor'
    It works as expected except form the fact from when the visitor enters my webpage(superhost.gr) by clicking a backlink of another webpage.

    Then even if the cookie exists in his browser for some reason the try fails and except take actions.

    Can somebody explain why this is happening?

    You can see this action yourself by hitting:

    1. superhost.gr as a direct hit
    2. by clicking superhost.gr's backlink from ypsilandio.gr/mythosweb.gr

    You will see than in 2nd occasion another ebtry will appear in the database here:

    http://superhost.gr/?show=log&page=index.html
