I have absolutely no preconceptions about this! If cookies will do it, I am happy to bake the project. Naturally, I don't want to set up two solutions if one will suffice for both the intra and internet situations. (The intranet would have the same pages but I am told that the internet will not be available from that network.)
In short, this is the problem seeking a solution: I currently have about 150 html pages each with multiple choice and/or text input options - the inputs to which I would like to save from session to session for both intra and internet scenarios. Ideally, each user should be available to return to his/her session state simply by logging in, but not from the same machine.
I understand how to write and retrieve cookie information but I am certain that the limits would quickly be reached.
Couldn't just one MySQL database for each of both situations handle the job server-side? If so, where I do I start to learn how to write the code to save the answers to the db?
I'm sorry to be such a noob to this. But once I get going on something I am reasonably capable.
