php – Show different page if first time visit

Posted by: admin July 12, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

I found a snippet of code that redirects if it’s the first visit, but when I tried to use it, it just stayed at that code. I don’t really understand too much about the cookies and how it works, so maybe you can help! Here’s the PHP code:

    <?php

    session_start();

    if (isset($_SESSION['FirstVisit'])) {

    $_SESSION['FirstVisit'] = 1;

    header("Location: http://example.com/index.php");

    // Don't forget to add http colon slash slash www dot before!

    }

?>

So how could I fix it so if it’s your first visit to the site it brings you to a certain page, and if not, the default?

How to&Answers:

You can use this code:

<?php
if (!isset($_COOKIE['firsttime']))
{
    setcookie("firsttime", "no", /* EXPIRE */);
    header('Location: first-time.php');
    exit();
}
else
{
    header('Location: site.php');
    exit();
}
?>

It will check if you have a cookie named “firsttime” and if not, it will create it and redirect to your FIRSTTIME page… If yes, it will just redirect you to the website…

Answer:

<?php

    session_start();

    if (!isset($_SESSION['FirstVisit'])) {

    //show site for the first time part
    $_SESSION['FirstVisit'] = 1;
    header("Location: http://example.com/index.php");

    // Don't forget to add http colon slash slash www dot before!

    } else { Show normal site }

?>

You just make an if statement to check whether there is a session set, if not, you know its there first time. Though, since it is not a cookie, anytime you quit the browser, it will assume it is the first time, even if it is never the first time.

Answer:

If sessions/cookies are to difficultly you can save the IP of the visitor. When IP exist show page 1 when IP is new redirect to other page?

Answer:

For more information see the docs.

<?php

    if (!isset($_COOKIE['visited'])) { // no cookie, so probably the first time here
        setcookie ('visited', 'yes', time() + 3600); // set visited cookie

        header("Location: http://example.com/index.php");
        exit(); // always use exit after redirect to prevent further loading of the page
    }

?>

Answer:

  <?php

    @session_start();
    $url = 'http://blah.com/default/';

    if (!isset($_COOKIE['Visited'])) {
        $_COOKIE['Visited'] = 1;
        $url = 'http://blah.com/firstvisit/';
    }

    header("Location: {$url}");

  ?>

Answer:

  <link rel="stylesheet" href="http://code.jquery.com/ui/1.9.2/themes/base/jquery-
ui.css" />
<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.8.3.js"></script>
<script src="/resources/demos/external/jquery.bgiframe-2.1.2.js"></script>
<script src="http://code.jquery.com/ui/1.9.2/jquery-ui.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="/resources/demos/style.css" />
<script>
$(function() {
$( "#dialog" ).dialog();
});
</script> 

<?php
if (!isset($_COOKIE['firsttime']))
{
setcookie("firsttime", "no", /* EXPIRE */);
header('Location: first-time.php');
exit();
}
else
{
?>
<div id="dialog" title="Basic dialog">
<p>text</p>
</div>
<?
}

?>

@ Frederick or PeeHaa would the above script also work to bring up a window before they enter the site rather than a page.
