how to implement remember me using session in CI?

If it is found the code in it is matched against a user, and if matched, you log in the user (setting whatever session variables you use for your login) (after checking the user is not banned or membership expired etc) and the users page load shows him/her already logged in and recognised. Even if they used a deep link to something inside the site, they should get logged in automatically. This means you need to use a pre-controller hook so that any controller called runs the check. Are they logged in? No. Have they got a remember_me cookie set? Yes. Does it match a current user? Yes. Log them in and continue.
