A great way of personalizing your website for users is through the use of browser cookies. There are many different uses for cookies. For example, it is common to write a cookie to the user’s browser when they login to your website. This script shows you how to write a basic cookie to the browser.
<% Response.Cookies("MyCookie")("Domain") = "www.YourDomainHere.com" Response.Cookies("MyCookie")("UserType") = "Member" Response.Cookies("MyCookie")("Expires") = Date() + 30 %>
This cookie defines your website Domain, identifies the user as a Member, and sets the cookie to Expire in 30 days. There you have it, now you can write cookies to a browser. So what happens next? After you write a cookie to the browser, you will need to read the cookie when the user returns, right? Check out Read Cookies from Browser to learn how.
