I use a session variable to store the username when a person logs into the site... what I'm not sure how to do is automatically set that session variable from a cookie (as in, "keep me signed in" check box at the log-in screen that would set a cookie to auto set the session variable each time a page on the site is opened...
Is there any info on how to use the Cookie Toolkit for this purpose?
I should mention that I've tried the following:
Set a cookie called "auto_log" based on the checkbox state... if checked onSubmit, the cookie "auto_log" is set to the value of the username (which is also the value used in the session variable).
There is a server-side behavior to set the session variable "MM_Username" to the value of cookie "auto_log" before page load.
I thought this might work, but it does not.
