I'm a student at university in England, and I'm working on my final year project, an online store in coldfusion.
This is probably gonna sound like a simple problem, but here goes...
I want to be able to allow the user to log in, and stay logged in (maybe with the username displayed at the top, ie. Logged in as ....).
What is the best way to do this? Obviously I don't want to send the user_ID as a URL variable, as that would be unsafe. Is a session cookie the way to go?
How do I store the user_id in a session cookie? Can I just use CFLOGIN and how?
Thanks for your time!
