[thelist] php session variable needs to persist

Good point Robert,

I guess all you'd need then is the popup to close and redirect the parent. I know .Jeff has figured out how to get JavaScript to talk from parent to child, not sure if there are any JavaScript issues with talking from child to parent...?

I can't see how this would help, the popup would still go to Paypal and when Paypal redirects to the 'thank you' page it'll be in the popup and will still lack access to the session variable.....

Can you clarify?

As long as the window that launched the session is still open so is the session. Once the User returns to your site via the pop up close or have the user close the pop up window. I believe you could achieve the same result launching the link in an iframe(thoughts anyone?).

Hope this helps,
