well okay some of you might be familiar with my login thing i had problems with.. ive got that fixed thanx to nightfire but now i was wondering how cani have it so it like sets their user name onto a cookie or like make it tell that they are logged in so when they view the members page it says welcome *their username*

all i know is you need to do something like
setcookie(sgusername, $_POST['Name'], time()(3600 * 24));

the $_POST['name'] come from my login field that has you type your username in.. but when i say echo"$sgusername"; it doesnt want to wark... any suggestions??? i mean there are no errors it just does not show anything

The usual error you'll see ppl in this area is ppl asking why things aren't showing or they've forgot to save the work or forgot to upload the present work :p
