Auto login and cookies toolkit

hi there,
Just purchased the extension and I a really happy about it but I can't quite figure out how to allow my users to "auto login".
In the Cookies toolkit extensions homepage it states:
"Do you need to set PHP web cookies for your website? If so then you have come to the right place! With Cookies Toolkit, Dreamweaver users can quickly implement web cookies to personalize and enhance a site visitor’s experience. Implement the popular “Auto Login” and “Remember Me” cookies, and more!"
Rest assumed that I am not that familiar with cookies and I couldn't find any tutorial or documentation on how to implement the popular "Auto Login" with this extension without the Security Assist (which at the moment is out of reach for me).
Any suggestions?

Done That

hi there, thanks for the reply.
I've done that, works great, the form remembers me but maybe i misunderstood the idea of "Auto Login".
What I am trying to do is something like this.

1. a user login filling the login form (checking the remember me checkbox)
2. after a while, in case the user close the page or the browser, he opens the login page again and automatically the page remembers him and redirect him to the homepage in the protected area skipping the login page. Any suggestions?

I am trying adding a page before the login that checks if the username session is the same as the username cookie, if there is a match it redirects to the protected area, or, in case it does not match, it will redirect to the login page. But I am wondering how to make it work with different level of access. Any help will be appreciated.

For auto login to function, there needs to be an extra authenticate user behavior on the page that set to trigger if the cookies are set and set to use the cookie values.

The authenticate User behavior that is built into Dreamweaver is limited in that it can only be triggered on a form post, and can only use Form values for the login.

The Dreamweaver Authenticate user behavior will not support Auto Login.
