loading session from cookies - PHP Development

i want to be able to load my session id from cookies, but as far as i know theres no way to expilicitly state that session_id() = some cookie is that possible? i dont want to keep passing the session id via the URL becuase i am afraid of people passing the URL to other people via instant messenger programs and then becoming logged in as them when they shouldn't be. Any ideas, suggestions, comments? -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Gerry L. [email]mascota1pacbell.net[/email]...

    in php.ini:

    session.use_only_cookies=1

    ?

    AFAIK, you still have to disable session.use_trans_sid. Otherwise,
    you'll still get that annoyingly long and cryptic SID on your Earls.
