Hey... I Remember You!
(Page 1 of 7 )

In my opinion, one of the most annoying things about some websites is logging in. If you're like me, then you have four gazillion username and password combinations and can't remember any of them... even on a good day!

In this article I'm going to show you how to create a simple "Remember Me" system that will allow your visitors to come to your site, signup, enter their login details only once and be remembered the next time they visit your site. This is a popular technique, and I've it on http://www.techbuy.com.au.

Today I've decided to develop this article using ASP, but it's just as easy with PHP. To understand some of the concepts we'll be using, you should be comfortable with HTML, ASP 3.0, SQL Server 2000 (If you can create a database with Enterprise Manager then that's all you need!) and have access to a web server running IIS 5.0. Usually any Windows 2000 server will be fine.
