Hi,
use cookie name like this.
get_cookie($username)
it will work.

Happy Coding,

You are not going to get anything in $usercookie. The cookie value can only be fetched using cookie name, which in your case is '$username'.

if($remember){
$cookie1 = array(
'username' => $username,
'password' =>$password,
'expire' => '86500',
);
set_cookie($cookie1);

get_cookie('username','true');
get_cookie('password');
}
i have written like this but iam not getting the values in cookies.iam getting null values.

Hi,
try without the if condition.
If it works, check the $remember variable.
