    If you have a form field that look like this :

    <input type=text name=username>

    Then, after the form has been submitted you can access the value submitted like this :

    The data you submitted is <?php echo $_POST['username'] ?>

    or <?php print "The data you submitted is {$_POST['username']}" ?>

    Note that you have to use {} when accessing the variable inside quotes.

    for the cookie

    A major problem I had with setcookie function was that I didn't realize it was supposed to be on the VERY top of the page, even
    spaces count. Make sure that is the case for you otherwise it will generate errors.
