How do I create permanent cookies?

Answer Wiki

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Your question is a bit vague. If you are looking for a way to save the cookies that other sites install on your system (my wife had me set up Amazon.com and a few other cookies this way) you can find out how to do this, and a lot more here. If you are looking for a way for your site to permanently install a cookie on another users system, I don’t think this can be done (short of it becoming some kind of spyware/adware.)
Good Luck!

    Your Q is confused, assuming that, you want to set cookies preference on browser like IE/ fire fox/ safari/ opera or whatever it is, but browser name is required, cause different browsers have various parameters/ options.

    Cookies are temporary because you have no control over when they get deleted. They live on the client computer so the owner of that computer can delete them as they see fit. 

    You might be able to move some of the cookie data into the database so you have more control over it.
