Hi, Experts,
I have this question, I have two websites, one is english version and another one is other language version. A user will come to my english site first, if this user want to visit the " other language" site, this user click a link to the " other language" website. How can I write a script which will remember this user's very last visit ( which is the " other language" site ) and not to my english site. Is it about cookie ?

Sincerely,

You need a cookie to store his/her preferences.
When the user enters the url again you can read from the cookie his preference and redirect to the appropriate page

asp would be using
response.cookies("cookiename") to write the cookie
and request.cookies("cookiename") to read the cookie
then a response.redirect to move him to the folder you like or even server.transfere
refere to this for more info

one last Q, I saw the code
<html>
<head>
<script language="JavaScript" src="cookieLibrary.js"></script>
<script language="JavaScript">
// check to see if cookie exists
// if yes, redirect to language page
if (GetCookie("lang") == "EN")

Do I need to download "cookieLibrary.js" ?

Yes the cookie script can be obtained from
http://www.cookiecentral.com/code/cookie.txt ( save it as the .js file )
or you can take it from
http://javascript.internet.com/cookies/name.html
