Hi,

This is a login.php.

The user is given a choice to either input his/her Username & Password or Email & Password. In short, either log-in inputting your Username or your Email.
People are welcome to provide their own code samples in mysqli procedural or edit (fix) my code by adding comments and displaying it on this thread for all newbies to learn from. From your code and your code comments, I, aswell as other newbies would learn.
It is written in mysqli procedural. I have not learned pdo oop yet. I need help in the login.php to add the "Remember Me" feature using Cookies.
Can someone be the Great Samaritan here to show me an example ? You're welcome to not start from scratch but work on my work (login.php).
registration.php, logout.php and account_acivation.php finished. Those last 3 files are working fine. Working on the home.php now.

login.php
Code:
<?php
 
/*
ERROR HANDLING

declare(strict_types=1);
ini_set('display_errors', '1');
ini_set('display_startup_errors', '1');
error_reporting(E_ALL);
mysqli_report(MYSQLI_REPORT_ERROR | MYSQLI_REPORT_STRICT);
 
include 'config.php';
 
// check if user is already logged in
if (is_logged() === true) 
{
	//Redirect user to homepage page after 5 seconds.
	header("refresh:2;url=home.php");
	exit; //
}


if (isset($_POST["login_username_or_email"]) && isset($_POST["login_password"]))
	{
		$username_or_email = trim($_POST["login_username_or_email"]);
		$password = $_POST["login_password"];		
         
		//Select Username or Email to check against Mysql DB if they are already registered or not.
				
        if(strpos("$username_or_email", "@"))
		{
			$email = $username_or_email;
						
			$query = "SELECT ids, usernames, passwords, emails, accounts_activations_statuses FROM users WHERE emails = ?";

I have some great example videos on my site, you should check them out.

To ask someone to walk through all that code is quite an undertaking and would require a couple of hours to go through and clean up.

I do not use cookies on my home page or any page of my site, I have used them for customer sites at their request but I try to convince them that Sessions are a better fit for them and there customers.

Now what you have asked would not work in a Session as the sessions are destroyed as soon as the user exits the site.

I am quite surprised that you would make an assumption that I could easily go through your code and make changes easily. Obviously to you my time is worth nothing. Just because you have a block of code listed as working does not in anyway mean that the code is working for what you are trying to do.

Adding feature in front end usually done by html and javascript, html is for face of the page or the user inter face where the user can input his data in an input filled. The work of javascript is waiting or watching if the user is going to click the submit button or just clicking the enter key in keyboard. The javascript serves as the backend of html and has code in it with set of instructions on what should be done with the data inputted by user.
