Martin A has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am currently working on a web site which needs login functionality.
Which is the smartest way of doing this?
How does the perlmonks.org handle this?
Some of my thoughts have been to be giving the user a session id as a cookie and let the server remember that the user is loged in, or setting the username and password as a cookie on the users computer and let the server read that and log him/her in to every page that are being accessed.
Maybe there are other solutions to this, if so please tell me.
