    Default Tracking Users?

    I want to track the login states of my users across my website but have been told that session variables are either the spawn of Satan or Barbara Walters... forget which one<BR><BR>Are there any alternatives? I was thinking cookies but theres no way to test login states really with them as they just hold data for every visit (They need to enter their password each time) Am I stuck with sessions?

    used in moderation, Session variables can be OK. it&#039;s when developers go mad on them that they start to get out of control. if your traffic level is low, go for it, but keep it to a minimum - store a unique key only for each user, not their entire profile.<BR><BR>j<BR><BR>[Microsoft MVP, IIS]
