This little script make popup only appear once, but need little edit

Hi guys

below script is working to make popup only appear once in our website, but maybe its need some edit/fix

For example its working
first, user go to www.yourdomain.com/01/01/2009/title/ page -> then the popup appear
then the user go to www.yourdomain.com/01/01/2009/title/2.html page -> the popup NOT appear, so the script is working to make popup only appear once

but its not working if the user go to another path/folder, for example
first, user go to www.yourdomain.com/01/01/2009/title/ page -> then the popup appear
then the user go to www.yourdomain.com/01/01/2009/title2/ page -> the popup APPEAR AGAIN, so the script is not working if the path/folder different, still in same domain

this script is from here

<script type="text/javascript">
function setCookie(name, value, expires, path, domain, secure) {
var curCookie = name + "=" + escape(value) +
((expires) ? "; expires=" + expires.toGMTString() : "") +
((path) ? "; path=" + path : "") +
((domain) ? "; domain=" + domain : "") +

((secure) ? "; secure" : "");
document.cookie = curCookie;

function getCookie(name) {
var dc = document.cookie;
var prefix = name + "=";
var begin = dc.indexOf("; " + prefix);
if (begin == -1) {
begin = dc.indexOf(prefix);
if (begin != 0) return null;
} else
begin += 2;
var end = document.cookie.indexOf(";", begin);
if (end == -1)
end = dc.length;
return unescape(dc.substring(begin + prefix.length, end));

function pop()
theUrl = "http://www.yahoo.com";
window.open(theUrl,"theWindow","width=400,height=4 00,menubar=yes,toolbar=yes")

var seen = getCookie("seen");

if (!seen) {
var now = new Date();
now.setTime(now.getTime() + 365 * 24 * 60 * 60 * 1000);
setCookie("seen", 1, now);


i had try removing the part in red above or only one of them, but its still appear if change to other path/folder, still in same domain, please help to fix it guys not appear again in entire yourdomain.com, whatever the path is

or if you have other script to make popup only appear once for each user, its good if you share it too guys

I would suggest commenting/removing the line:
((path) ? "; path=" + path : "") +
that way your script will ignore the whole path thing and it will work all across your domain.

However that script will fail to open popups in most of the cases because every new browser comes with a popup blocker. You should look into javascript floating windows, or javascript modal messages.
