Ok now I'm trying to set up a login system that is like Amazon.com's. I want to be able to create a cookie and then read that cookie and say welcome back (whoever) then if that is not the person then I want to create a login/password so that I will display the correct infomation about the person visiting the site. Am I making sense here? Anyone know how to get me started. I've created the database that should contian the customer info so how do I start from here.
